Earl Grey from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 3rd, 2015

This tea is nothing special if you compare it to other bagged Earl Greys.

I think that the smell and flavor of bergamot is not strong enough. It is a little too bitter for me. You can add milk to it but then you will lose bergamot completely.

Anyway, it is just average bagged tea.

Not super impressed with this earl grey. I drink black tea, and found the bergamot too bitter to drink. This was after a brew time of less than 3 minutes.

Meh. Generic fanning green tea. Not too bad if you include honey, but it can still go bitter. If you have nothing else it's not the worst, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Apr. 8th, 2015

The scent and flavor of jasmine is strong, and if you add honey that definitely improves this tea. However, as it cools it goes bitter (even with the bag taken out), and without the honey it's very meh. Not an impressive tea, but probably not the worst jasmine green tea in a bag. Worth trying if jasmine is something yo...

This is probably my favorite tea by Ahmad so far -- great for when you're in a sweet mood. This one smells exactly like those after dinner peppermints you can get free at many restaurants. If you don't add any sweetener, it can go a bit bitter. But if you add honey, then it also *tastes* exactly like those mints. Defin...

Mar. 18th, 2015

Oh my goodness. This is the best black tea blend I've ever had. Maybe I just haven't had more expensive tea, but for its price, this tea is the best. It's heavenly. When brewed the right amount of time, it's like drinking tea in a log cabin in the mountains on a snowy day surrounded by pine trees. Kind of wintergreen a...

Okay tea. Pretty normal English Breakfast. I have loose leaf English Breakfast, not tea bag, and it's just okay. Not much flavor.

Quite meh. This tea goes bitter too easily and the lemon isn't nearly bright enough for me. Makes multiple cups easily, so that's good if you like it. Unfortunately, though it isn't the worst, it's far from the best tea, imho.

Earl Grey (Loose) from Ahmad Tea

Dec. 9th, 2014

One of my favorite blends--particularly with respect to the price. The flavor is smooth, the citrus noticeable but neither fake nor overwrought; and no matter how long I let this steep, I don't detect any bitterness. I bought 100 grams to start out with, but I expect this to be a staple of my tea cabinet from now on.

good smooth and mellow smell...bergamot is soothing with this one! Just a bit too subtle of a smell though. Flavor is bold, but taste is a bit too bitter...I've probably had better earl grey's out there...

Aug. 4th, 2014

This tea needs a really short steep time for me--say, 30 seconds--in order to be pleasing. Otherwise, it quickly becomes bitter. In fact, by the flavor, I would have guessed this was a black tea.

Not too bad if the steeping is kept brief, but there are a lot of teas I've enjoyed more.

This is another exceptional loose-leaf black tea from Ahmad, strong, and sold for an exceptionally reasonable price. Thank you Emily for sharing this one with me!

This seems to be either a black tea blend very lightly-scented with bergamot, or a blend of unflavored black teas with a bit of Earl grey: it has a faint...

With the first brewing I could detect a lime scent, but it was fairly subdued. The citrus flavors are even more muted when drinking. They did seem to smooth out the black tea for me, but not enough. I would have appreciated a brighter tasting cup.

There's a hint of bitterness at the end, though it wasn't intense. Th...

Not my tea, unfortunately--too strong with the black tea flavor for me. The little bit of strawberry flavor made the bitterness a little more palatable, so I certainly enjoyed this more than I would a simple black tea. The aroma was better, with the same two elements but with the fruit coming through a bit more strongl...

Smells like peaches and cream oatmeal!! mmm! Best smelling tea ever! Unfortunately all that richness and flavor in the smell turns into a slightly bitter black tea that actually has only mild fruit flavor. The black tea itself is bold though.

very good smell and taste....the strength is just about right too...steeped 4 minutes but didn't boil as directed. Perhaps a bit longer steep next time. The amount of flavoring seems spot on....not overpoweringly artificial or an underpowered hint.

I had the opportunity to try this a long time ago, but the tea bag wasn't terribly fresh, so I waited to review it again. This time I got a fresh, individually sealed tea bag from my friend Anna--thank you!

This tea does have a hint of bergamot but it's just a hint, so little I almost couldn't notice it, so it tast...

My local Indian Market was out of the Ahmad Kalami Assam, so I picked this one up instead. Quite different in flavor and aroma, but still an excellent value.

Brewed at 3 to 4 minutes maximum, and you get a bold, robust flavor and aroma, but with less complexity and maltiness than the Kalami Assam. The color is extr...

Of all four of Ahmad's fruit-flavored black teas, this is the one I liked the least. It has a fairly artificial apple flavoring...it does not smell at all like an actual apple, but rather, like the "green apple" candy flavor, familiar to me from my childhood.

I don't know if Ahmad uses a different base tea for thei...
