1.5 tsp for 300mL water @100C, steeped 4 minutes, drunk bare.

A very good Ceylon. It doesn’t scream ‘copper’, like Lover’s Leap Estate does, but it is unmistakably Ceylon black tea. I tend for forget about it, as I like to around with the fancy China teas and the bold Assams, but Ahmnad’s Ceylon is quiet, dependable, and delicious. No bitterness at 4 minutes.

And despite what the note says, there is absolutely NO bergamot in this tea.

This is perhaps my favorite bagged tea. The way I stumbled upon it was kind of funny. I was on a trip to Raleigh for training, and in Cary to meet my friend at a Thai restaurant. I went into a Turkish store to ask for directions. It turned out that the restaurant was directly across the parking lot. I felt bad not buying anything at the store, so I bought this tea, thinking it would just be so-so. I’ve been searching every store in southeastern North Carolina for this tea since I finished the box…I may have to buy it online. I’ve rambled enough…nice tea, a very smooth Ceylon…highly recommended.

We got Ahmad in Brooklyn . Everywhere, especially in Turkish and Russian stores

Haha, yeah, if only I realized how great that tea was when I lived in Brooklyn! :P I lived on Quentin Road, within walking distance to several Turkish and Russian stores on Kings Highway and 86th Street, haha. Where are you in Brooklyn?

My favorite company for bagged. The sell many varieties in loose as well. A solid Cheapster Steepster brand.

Mike

Hahaha, I love that term, KS!! I’m definitely a Cheapster Steepster! :P I found a Turkish store near my sister’s house, hoping to find some Ahmad tea when I go there on Thursday!

For me, the best Ceylon out there and I’m a loose leaf snob. I’m not quite sure why bergamot is mentioned in the tea description on Steepster, but I can tell you that there is NO bergamot in this tea. They save that for their English Afternoon. Caramel sweetness, nice bloom, mild astringency. I agree with the other taster that this is morning stuff. I don’t know why but it seems to be very high in caffeine.

Don’t over steep this loose leaf tea. It is my go-to morning cup of caffeine.

3 minutes in the pot. Too much more gives it an over-tannic aspect. This is a smooth, very balanced tea with great caffeine and a wonderful morning flavor.
