English Tea No. 1

Our Ahmad Tea exclusive blend, English Tea No. 1 has acquired fans all over the world and is one of our best selling blends. A blend of teas from Assam, Sri Lanka and Kenya, three of Britain’s favourite tea regions, are balanced to deliver a lively, rounded, satisfying brew. With its deep amber liquor, a hint of bergamot and a flavour more subtle than other everyday blends, this is a brew for moments when refreshment and revival are required and only the best tea will do.
Black tea with a slight touch of bergamot

Origin*: Sri Lanka, Assam, Kenya

*Please note, subject to change due to seasonal variations.
Water
The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. Heat water to the recommended temperature using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.

Temperature
Heat fresh water to rolling boil or to a temperature of 100°C.

Loose Leaf
Use the infuser of your choice. Measure 1 teaspoon of tea per person. For a stronger brew preference, add an additional teaspoon for the pot.

Infusion Time
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea leaves. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5-7 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
English Tea No.1 is a delightful cup of tea for all occasions, morning or evening, with or without milk. Drink alone or serve with favourite sugary biscuits, indulgent nibbles of chocolate or generous slices of cake.

    Full bodied

    I tried this tea when i was in London, from then on I was hooked, it is absolutely beautiful tea, full bodied, I usually drink Assam or Ceylon but this is by far the best.

    Great tasting Tea

    I was introduced to Ahmad tea while working in Damascus, and when I was transferred to Helsinki I was fortunate to find a local supplier of my favourite teas! I now reside in South Africa and unfortunately could not track down a local suppler! Fortunately I still have a few boxes and canteen of my very precious tea for private consumption!

    I love tea and enjoy every cup that I'm having every day, so it is very important for me the quality of it.
    Ahmad tea providing the best tea that anybody could have and No.1 is one of them. I'm loving it.
