English Afternoon Tea

A superb blend of selected Indian, Ceylon and Kenyan teas, our English Afternoon brews a wonderful liquor that is sparkling coppery-red. It is ideal tea for those who want to enjoy the muscatel character of Darjeeling with the full bodied strength of an Assam or Kenyan Tea. A touch of bergamot has been added to give a delicately aromatic flavour and a tangy, lemony aftertaste that lingers intriguingly long after each sip.
Black tea with a slight touch of bergamot

Origin*: North India, Assam, Sri Lanka

*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 a rolling boil or to a temperature of 100°C.

Infusion Time
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the teabag. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This well-mannered and alluring tea pairs perfectly with warm scones fresh from the oven, buttery shortbreads and rich fruit cakes. Brew for 4-5 minutes. Best served without milk. Serve with a slice of lemon to enhance the citrus notes.

    The best tea EVER!

    I discovered Ahmad's English Afternoon Tea when I was in London a couple of years ago. Naturally, I stocked up before I returned home! I can't find this blend locally, so I'm once again stocking up. Thanks!

    My favourite cup!

    This tea is my soul mate - I take it with me whenever I travel. For me, it has just the right balance of strength, colour with a wonderful light aroma. Lovely.

    English Afternoon

    I love this tea. The taste is amazing. I like the taste of bergamot, but personally find it too strong in Earl Grey. The subtle hint of it in this blend perfects the overall blend.
