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's, or Homegoods.

My favorite offerings from Ahmad were English Tea No. 1, Ceylon Tea, and, the green tea.

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.

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...

I've liked all the loose Ahmad teas that I've tried and I was surprised to find that I didn't care for one of their bagged versions!

The Bergamot smell is one of my favorite things about Earl Grey and this tea lacked it. The taste of the tea was a little too bitter and strong for me as well. I'll stick with Bigelow and Celestial Seasonings for my bagged Earl Grey, for now.

I thought this was a classic British-style Earl Grey in tea bags. I liked it considerably better than Twinings.

Moderate body, just the right amount of bergamot. I found the base tea to be less aromatic and complex than I like, however. I strongly preferred Ahmad's English Afternoon blend, which has a lighter bergamot and a base black tea whose aroma comes through more.

But I'd gladly drink this again. Among Ahmad's teabags, however, the winners in my book are the English Afternoon and Darjeeling.

I like this tea. It has a good amount of flavor and it blends well with the tea. The aroma is really nice. It tastes a little bit weak, though. I had to steep it for 6 1/2 minutes to get it strong enough. I added cream and sugar.
