English Afternoon Tea

Featuring a unique blend of Ceylon, Kenyan and Indian teas, our English Afternoon Tea is simply one-of-a-kind. As its name suggests, this tea has been specifically designed to complement the traditional pastries, scones and cakes associated with a classic British Afternoon Tea.

So, next time you find yourself enjoying an Afternoon Tea with friends, opt for a cup of Ahmad Tea’s English Afternoon Tea to take your tasting experience to a whole new level.

Producing a vibrant, copper-red liquid when brewed, this tea is best served with a single slice of lemon to emphasize its tangy citrus notes. Full-bodied and rising in popularity, our English Afternoon Tea is the perfect option if you’re looking for something aromatic and flavourful.

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.
