About Ahmad Tea

Ahmad Tea is a London-based tea company. The company started out selling tea produced in Gilan, Iran, across central Asia; in 1986 it first opened an office and factory in the UK. The company has since expanded to sell a wide variety of teas, with a global distribution.

Ahmad mostly sells styles of tea popular in the UK and central Asia, including English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, a few green teas, and a number of fruit-flavored teas. Ahmad also has a few black teas that are lightly-scented with Bergamot, making them similar to but distinct from traditional Earl Grey blends. The company sells both loose-leaf tea and tea bags, with some blends only available in one format or the other.

In the UK, Ahmad tea is mostly available only in stores. In the U.S., their teas are available through a number of different online retailers which are listed on their website. Their teas are also widely available in middle-eastern import stores. Ahmad tea is one of the most popular teas in Iran.[1] The company has separate websites for their main (UK-based) operation and their USA branch. In addition, there are products not listed on either site. We list all such products on our site: when possible we link to the UK site, using the USA-one as a fallback, and linking to Amazon's product pages if neither are available for a particular tea.

Ahmad Tea is a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership.

Special Blend with Earl Grey

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend
Jul. 15th, 2018

The dry tea is quite broken and smells almost like Froot Loops. Unlike most Earl Greys, though, the aroma of the tea is discernible beneath the bergamot.

The brewed tea smells mostly of malt and bergamot. The tea tastes more bitter and astringent than I expected. Based on Ahmad's other teas, I was expecting the blen...

Picture of Ceylon (Ceylon Orange Pekoe)

A local Middle Eastern grocery store stocks several varieties of Ahmad tea, including this one.

The dry leaves are quite broken, with medium-small pieces. The aroma of the leaves is malty, but not particularly strong. Once the tea starts brewing, though, the aroma greatly intensifies. It's not as complex as some oth...

English Tea No. 1

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend
Jun. 24th, 2017

This bagged tea didn't earn quite as high of a rating as Ahmad's loose-leaf version of English Afternoon, but it was very good. Oodles of bags of this turned up in my pantry in an unmarked tin (my wife likes it, apparently), so I figured to give it a try.

I could taste the bergamot a bit -- not as much as with th...

I have no problem with Ahmad teas and the Ceylon is about as basic a full-bodied black tea as you can get. Better hot but OK iced as you can add juices, fruits or flavorings as you wish. Inexpensive.

Smooth, easy to drink and as Alex says - a "classic" cuppa tea.

Mango Magic (Black Tea)

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend
May. 2nd, 2016

I love this fruity-scented mango black tea that smells and tastes great! (No milk - ever!) Not even sweetener is needed. The super-strong black teabag can do 2-3 infusions easily!
