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.

English Tea No. 1

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend
Feb. 1st, 2019

The "subtle flavor of bergamot" is definitely subtle. I can't actually smell any bergamot in the dry tea. Instead, it smells entirely like a malty CTC Assam.

While the tea's brewing, I can just make out the citrus through the tea. I'm getting less malt than when dry, but much more dry, tannic, earthy leaf with a bac...

Strawberry & Cream

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend
Dec. 17th, 2018

A very sweet strawberry smell dry with a bit of vanilla, unfortunately it mainly tastes like strawberry tea when prepared.

It isn't bad strawberry flavoured tea though, really nice and drinkable but it doesn't really have any cream to it unless I add milk.

Amazing in all respects.

The smell is spot on for the dessert really breathing in the fresh baked pastry. The flavour is subtler than the aroma but you can still taste the spices and pear throughout.

At £4 for 15 pyramid bags is quite dear for tea bags however with most of this dessert tea range it is worth it f...

Strawberry Velvet Cake

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend
Dec. 17th, 2018

Smells like a sweet jammy cake before steeping, a truly mouthwatering smell. After steeping the strawberry aroma subdued and less sweet. The taste itself mirrors the subdued aroma with the strawberry being the main flavour coming through with the tea.

15 pyramid bags for £4 is towards the higher end of what I'd usu...

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...
