Second quarter’s investment at the neighbor’s garage sale. This one doesn’t seem to get much love in other reviews, except for the cute packaging.

I’ll be the rebel: I like it. The product description, at least the one posted here, doesn’t mention the varieties in the blend, but educated guess would say lots of Keemun and a little Assam. Sweet and melba-toasty without milk.

Not as strong as my preferred Assam weekday morning teas, but it’s Sunday and I’m blessed with an hour in the patio glider watching Tazo take his morning nap in the sun. I don’t need to be kicked awake today.

I really like Ahman’s Ceylon tea, and I’m generally not crazy about Ceylon. I’d not be surprised to find more of their offerings better than I’d expect.


It’s not readily available in this part of the world—lucky finds at discount outlets and (as mentioned above) in the neighbor’s back yard, but I haven’t had a bad one yet.

First tea of the morning. Tony has a thing for Ahmad Earl Grey, so when he ordered some, several months ago, he also got a 100G tin of this for me. I feel that I should drink a cup from time to time, & since today is Father’s Day, here it is.

It’s not a bad tea, actually, but not a tea Im fond of.It’s sufficiently bold, pretty bassy, with an astringent bite. It is the type of breakfast blend that I shouldn’t drink before breakfast, or that I should include some form of sweetener or coconut creamer with, as I can feel in my gut the rising of queasiness that comes from certain teas on an empty stomach. I should drink it more often so that it gets used up, & then I can take the tin home & refill it with something wonderful.

1 bag for 250mL water @100C, steeped 5 minutes, drunk bare.

A bit flat. Some smooth heft from Assam and Kenyan teas, but the tea itself is practically dust. No bitterness, though.

I bought this for the tins. On Amazon, you can get this in a 4 pack of so-cute-it-oughta-be-illegal little English phonebox tins (not pictured here). I justified the purchase by reasoning that I could drink the tea at work where I still use bags and use the tins at home for tea storage.

Well, the tins are just as cute in person, maybe more so, but my greedy little eyeballs breezed right over the description that they’re also banks. So each one has a coin slot in the top. Sigh.

They come with a bit of tape over the coin slot, and I added a second, bigger piece, and I’ll just put the label for whatever tea it is on top so it looks less wonky.

But why am I spending so much time on the tins? Because the tea is utterly unremarkable. It’s dust in a bag that brews up to an average, slightly tart/sour, english breakfast blend. I have 99 more of these and I’ll drink them easily; it isn’t crap. But there’s not much to say about it. It’s a lot like all the tea I drank before I knew more about tea.

I liked this tea much better the second time – perhaps it tasted bland because I was getting a cold.

I visited a British store and found this adorable red english telephone booth tin filled with packets of this tea. (I really bought it for the tin, the tea was like a “free gift with purchase” deal.) I’m drinking it for the first time now and it is really good and strong. My new electric kettle boils my water like crazy and it takes about 30 minutes before the tea is sippable afterwards, but I think it really makes my teas crazy strong. I usually just stick with Twinings English breakfast but this is a great alternative.

Having a cup of this while I write and it is really good! I didn’t have milk with it or honey, just straight English Breakfast, but on my second cup I will try to see if I can introduce some milk to find out if like it less, equally or love it even more.

My first English Breakfast tea & I am looking forward to having this daily!

I purchased a sample box of Teas from Ahmed and i have to say this is my favorite one so far. Not too strong but not too mellow. A bit of honey & milk don’t affect the flavor much but it really doesn’t need much to still be a good tea.

This is kind of like English breakfast tea for people who don’t necessarily like it with a punch in the face. It’s kind of like a sleeping in breakfast tea, really.

The dominant note to me is the Ceylon. It’s strong with that kind of crisp, cooling feeling that I associate with it. There’s a decent amount of Keemun in here too adding a toastiness. There’s a slight amount of the malt and heft that I associate with an Assam.

The cup perhaps lacks the depth I would normally enjoy, but I’d drink it again without complaint.

2/2/2015 2bags/10oz/212F/2min Pretty standard english breakfast tea, given to me for Xmas by my brother-in-law. Brewed weak, so for the next mug I’ll use three tea bags. With a bit of milk and sugar, an acceptable builders tea. If I bought this for myself (and I might) it would be for the darling wee little tins it came in, not the tea.

The secret to getting a good cuppa out of bagged tea is more tea, shorter steep time.
