English Tea No. 1
A long-standing favourite, No.1 is a blend of premium quality teas with a subtle flavour of bergamot. Balanced in aroma, colour and strength. A delightful cup for all times of the day.

It has a smaller amount of bergamot than the earl grey and I found it a quite appealing and relaxing cup of tea. It is not overly strong, but strong enough to wake you up in the morning. Definitely a step up from common teas at the supermarket.
This tea, along with Ahmad's Ceylon and green were both very good for the price.

This tea does have a hint of bergamot but it's just a hint, so little I almost couldn't notice it, so it tasted more like a straight black tea. Robust, full-bodied, with a little bitterness, moderate astringency, and a hint of a savory quality.
Among tea bags, I liked this better than Ahmad's English Breakfast, but not quite as much as their English Afternoon. This tea was a tad less malty than the afternoon one; I thought it was a little smoother, more aromatic, and more complex than their English Breakfast, although it was still a pretty straightforward tea.
Good (and a lot better than mainstream tea bag brands), but pales in comparison to Ahmad's loose-leaf. If I wanted a tea in this style, I'd go with their loose-leaf Ceylon, which ironically, was the next cup of tea I drank after drinking this one, so I was able to compare.
Great flavor, especially with a cinnamon stick and some cloves in the kettle.
