Kalami Assam Indian Tea from Ahmad Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Mar. 7th, 2019

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 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

62 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Rooibos & Cinnamon from Ahmad Tea

Mar. 5th, 2019

Good quality tea. The rooibos and cinnamon have a good blend where the cinnamon is the undertone which gives it a nice after taste.

Special Blend (Teabags) from Ahmad Tea

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 28th, 2019

A local Middle Eastern market had a gift pack of this tea along with a free Ahmad tea mug for $4, so I couldn't pass it up. I decided to try it alongside the loose leaf Special Blend. One thing that I'll note is that, though I assume they're intended to be the same tea, the packaging on the bagged tea doesn't include t...

English Tea No. 1 from Ahmad Tea

63 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

74 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
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.

Dec. 17th, 2018

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...

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 from Ahmad Tea

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

75 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 19th, 2018

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...

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...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 30th, 2016

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.

Feb. 11th, 2016

I didn't see a place on here for their loose-leaf version of this tea, but in general my impressions are the same (if more favorably numbered) than Alex Zorach's below. No tea on Earth is too strong for me, but I'll at least call this one worthy of the adjective "strong". The value ranking is the only thing holding i...

Feb. 11th, 2016

My daughter came back from London with this tea packaged in little cubic tins featuring buses and other London sights. As such, my "value" rating is lower than it could be because she paid a tourist premium at a souvenir shop. I'd buy this without hesitation for normal American store prices.

One of the better lo...

I haven't tried the loose leaf tea from Ahmad, but I did have the opportunity to try this tea as part of an assortment pack I purchased at Marshall's. You may also be able to find it at TJ Maxx or Homegoods.

It is a good Ceylon bagged offering that brews a nice golden color with good flavor without being too bitter....

The bagged tea of this type from Ahmad comes in individually wrapped bags in a 20 pack, and also in 50 circular bags in a larger pack. I found that the circular bags from Ahmad have a larger amount of tea than the individually wrapped bags. This is a straightforward Chinese green tea, but it is mellow and not astringe...

This tea came in an assortment pack purchased at a local Marshall's. 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.

I prefer this over Twinings Earl Grey, but there was something about the bergamot flavor that I didn't like as much as other brands, such as Williamson or Dilmah.. Not too strong of a tea, even when steeped for 4 minutes. It is still a good tea for the price, however, and you can find it at the local TJ Maxx, Marshall'...

Part of an Ahmad Tea assortment purchased at a local Marshall's.

Aroma was good, however, I found it quite average and lacking any distinction from the run of the mill brands at the grocery store. I find Ahmad's other offerings are quite good for the price, such as English Tea No. 1, Ceylon, and the green tea.
