Picture of Traditional Afternoon

Traditional Afternoon from Williamson Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Kenya

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 8th, 2015

You can find this tea at TJ Maxx, Marshall's, or Homegood, but it is not stocked on a regular basis. You can find the elephant caddies moreso than the boxed tea bags, and the boxes are no longer listed on Williamson's website, making me think that they are discontinued.

I tried this a year ago and it was an inexpen...

Ceylon Tea Bags from Ahmad Tea

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 8th, 2015

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....

Pure Green Tea (Original) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 8th, 2015

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...

English Tea No. 1 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 8th, 2015

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.

Earl Grey from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 8th, 2015

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'...

English Breakfast (Teabags) from Ahmad Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 8th, 2015

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.
