Review of English Afternoon

9 of 105 of 52 of 583 of 100

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 it back for me, since it cost overpriced tourist dinero.

My daughter brought 25g of Ahmad's English Afternoon back from London, looseleaf, in a small souvenir tin shaped (and painted) like a telephone booth. I wish she had brought more. This is a rich, full-bodied, deliciously potent EG when brewed a long time, as I prefer, until the tea is too dark to see through. It's definitely worthy of the British braggadocio assigned to a lot of their EG teas, but matched by few.
