My “Ahmad tea – London (English breakfast tea)” is in a tin of loose leaves (I prefer loose leaves).
I do this tea straight, with sugar only and also with milk and auger.
Usually for teatime afternoon with some “dandies” or buttercookies.
While it is not my everyday tea, it is a “with company” teatime tea.
A little cuppa “lux” with my daughters or my mother in law or my sister.
Nice velvety smooth cup.
Surprisingly aromatic and smooth. At first smell, I thought the tea would be too bitter and intense because the leaves smell pretty strong…but I was wrong. Beware of over-steeping this tea or it will start to taste bitter. I steeped it for 2-3 minutes and it had the perfect balance of aroma and taste, and brewed a beautiful caramel color.
If you’ve ever had hk styled milk tea, the smell of this is reminiscent of hk styled milk tea, so I would definitely throw this into experimental stage by adding milk and sugar!
I bought this tea in a Jordan market for $7 and really got a whole lot of bang for my buck. It seems the package was NASA approved shrink sealed because as soon as I opened it and air got in the loose tea seemed to be spilling out at an alarming pace and I ended up filling 1 huge glad container and a smaller one that I kept at my office. I was offering ceylon tea to coworkers more than I was working it seemed. As for taste, I love a nice strong tea in the morning and I packed my strainer full of this and got a really good caffeine fix every morning. (Side note: still haven’t finished this in two years…. not even close)
It’s been quite awhile since I last had this tea, and was in the mood for something a little different. This particular pot I decided to make a pot of Moroccan Mint, of which the result was amazing!
Even after a couple hours now, I’m still thinking of making more of this delicious tea. There is something about adding mint to a smokier, yet smooth green tea that can get the taste buds, craving more.
My rating will reflect the green tea without the mint, which is a nice green tea. There is no comparison here though. Either I’m in the mood for a more mintier flavored beverage, or this is one of the greatest, small addition one can make to a tea.
BTW: My rating for this go around would be 96 – no questions!
