From Ahmad Tea London

English Breakfast is the quintessential ‘British Cup of Tea’, a classically strong and full-bodied blend that goes well with milk and sugar. Our English Breakfast is a wonderfully satisfying harmony of strong, smooth, Assam, bright Ceylon and robust Kenyan teas. This is a brew to wake the senses first thing in the morning, complement favourite foods at breakfast and satisfy the taste buds at lunch and tea-time

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.

Really surprising, an absolute delight.

Akin to other reviews here, my baseline was Twinings English Breakfast. It’s a hearty tea that takes well to cream or sugar. Ahmad though… There’s just something to this blend, and it is smoother.

The nose has some zest to it. Like a mix of light citrus with floral, woodsy notes.

The body is nice and malty, but still very smooth. There is a delightful pine needle bite on the finish which brings that citrus zest back to the palate, but not in a way that overpowers. Just enough to offer some tannin and taste.

Overall it is the smoothness of this tea that gets me. It just seems a cut above competitors in a way that I would not expect from an inexpensive bagged tea. I would joyfully drink a cup each morning if it was all I had around. This passes the test and I would feel great about serving it to guests too. Excellent!

I found an Ahmad tea locally!! It’s the only one I have seen available around here, but I’ll take it! Good strength, smooth, better than many higher-priced teas…pretty much sums up every Ahmad tea.

I agree with your assessment of Ahmad teas. I like the pricey stuff but am perfectly content with the quality of nearly every one I’ve tried from Ahmad. Have you tried English Tea No.1? Lightly scented with bergamot – not an Earl Grey but really a nice cup. I’ve found it in loose leaf on occasion. I miss it.My wife will shoot me, no literally – its worse ;) but I may have to look for it again. So much tea so little time.

Awesome! I’ve had only had the English Tea No. 1 one time, in the bagged version, but I loved it! I’ll have to give the loose leaf version a try! I like their loose leaf Assams and Ceylon tea as well! I’m thinking of putting in a big online order, I’ll add some of the English Tea No. 1! Thanks for the recommendation!

For a cheap, bagged tea, this is satisfying! I dunked two bags in about 12 oz of water this morning, and added cream and sugar. It tasted yummy. The foundations of my world are now quaking because I always thought that Twinings would be my go-to bagged English breakfast. Now, I’m not so sure.

For a cheap bagged tea, it’s really good. In fact, I think I prefer it a bit over the Twinings English Breakfast that used to be my go-to tea for years.

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.
