Poor aroma, too bitter for me, sharp taste, not bad for ice tea. :)

My morning tea. Great with honey and milk. Look out for over-steeping, or it might be too strong and bitter.

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.

I’ve this this one straight before, but this morning I decided to try it with some almond milk and sugar. Really enjoyed it and was sad when my cup was finished.

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!

Backlogging from earlier today. A standard Ceylon tea, on the same level as Bigelow and Dilmah, not as flavorful as Twinings, and much more astringent at the finish, though no bitterness. I used the teabag version, with milk and sugar.

Can you buy all these Ahmad teas locally or do you shop online? Locally I can usually only find a very few regularly. A couple times a year they may set up a larger display. It usually doesn’t last long.

I ordered them from Amazon and then I found enjoybettertea.com, which had all the Ahmad teas, as well as Pickwick, Dilmah, Ridgway, and Basilur. I placed a $50.00 order with them about a week ago and they arrived quickly. Since there was free shipping at $50.00, I figured I would rather spend $6.95 on tea rather than on shipping charges. Locally, I have occasionally seen a box of Ahmad at TJMaxx/Home Goods, but that is all.

Good to know, Brett! My daughter loves Pickwick green but only buys it in Europe. She has been wanting a source!

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)

A fairly standard loose Ceylon, strong, good for early mornings. It lacks the subtlety of finer single-estate fare, though, so if you want something a bit more distinguished, steer clear.

This tea reminds of Ahmad Tea’s English Breakfast tea with a little less flavor. However, it’s still very enjoyable especially with the addition of milk.

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!
