it isn’t revitalising but it is very tasty, the cherry is the strongest of the flavours but as long as you don’t overdo the steep time it isn’t too much. Gorgeous smell too.

Wow. Absolutely zero flavor vanilla flavor to this vanilla tea. I love strong teas, but this one is bitter and weirdly pungent without any real character to it. Not a fan.

I have the loose leaf version and it has a mellow flavor. It does not have a very strong citrus or bergamot flavor.

A brisk, astringent, invigorating cup. Takes milk well. Blends well with other things, too—I especially like it with a little mint, tulsi, or lavender from my garden. Not that you have to put anything in it—it is delicious straight too and very versatile. Very reasonably priced, too, for the quality! I’ve been drinking this tea very happily for years.

Ahmad Aromatic Earl Grey is my daily stalwart for at least a decade. The cut Ceylon black loose leaf is a robust, somewhat malty. Best in the 17.5 ounze – 500 gram white tin.

I enjoy a strong morning tea, and unlike any other, Ahmad Aromatic Earl Grey always serves up cup after cup a morning expectation; dare I say entitlement? Venerable.

Holds up to, nay, well withstands hunny and milk (I know, I know).

The bergamot is mild and somewhat generic. Though in a newly opened or nearly empty tin, the bergamot is strong. Must vapor away during my steep.

Flavors: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Malt, Nutty

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 0 sec 12 tsp 48 OZ / 1419 ML

I had a bad experience with the English Afternoon Tea from Ahmad Tea before, because I found it to taste like a bergamot bomb, if there ever was one. I still remember that it was absolutely undrinkable plain, and therefore required tons of milk, but even that did not save the tea. Therefore, I was a bit hesitant when I was picking this up as it brought back those bad memories, but after finishing my first cup of this tea, I am so very glad that I bought it. At first, I didn’t even know that it was infused with bergamot, and all I was sensing was sweet notes of malt. After reading the description of this tea, the hint of bergamot is unmistakable, but it really serves to enhance the flavour of the tea and does not offend. I have 99 more tea bags to go, but I already can’t wait to buy another box of this. It’s that good.

How unusual for it not to be called Earl Grey tea.

Not as “refreshing” as I had thought it would have been. Heavy cherry taste.
Tastes better the cooler it gets, would be lovely as an iced tea in the Summer

This is a great option among inexpensive black teas. Great for everyday drinking.
