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.

Kalami Assam Indian Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India
Mar. 30th, 2019

Ahmad Tea provides some of the best values in entry-level loose leaf tea out there.

Their Kalami Assam beautifully exemplifies all that we adore about Assam teas. The leaf aroma is malty, earthy, and slightly vegetal.

I used 1 tsp per cup infused for about 4 minutes. Brew is richly brown and copper in the cup. ...

Rosehip, Hibiscus & Cherry

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend
Mar. 13th, 2019

Rosehip and hibiscus is my favorite herbal combination, so when I decided to try Ahmad's herbal teas, this was a natural for me.

The dry tea smells like cherry juice and sawdust. Brewed, the cherry is still prominent, but the rosehips and hibiscus add to the aroma. The cherry flavor adds too much sweetness to the fl...

I found a Middle Eastern store that carries a large number of Ahmad's teas and decided to try some of their herbal teas as well. As a brand, Ahmad has shown itself to produce high quality and flavorful products and this tea is no exception. Other than whatever "natural flavor" is included (I'm guessing primarily lemon ...

Kalami Assam Indian Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India
Mar. 7th, 2019

Based on the previous reviews, I bought a pound box of this tea. Most of what I could say was already said by Alex in their spot-on review. I find that I get the best cup of tea by allowing it to steep for ten minutes or so.

Even with such a long steep, the bitterness is understated for an Assam. Though the tea gets...

Peach & Passion Fruit

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend
Mar. 5th, 2019

Both the dry tea and steeped liquor have a perfumy peach aroma that smells to me like peach Jolly Rancher candy (a discontinued flavor, sadly). There's just enough passion fruit to be detectable, but I bought this particular flavor for the passion fruit and am a bit disappointed that it isn't stronger.

The fruit fla...
