English Tea No. 1

One of our best-selling blends, our English Tea No.1 is both lively and rounded in flavour. Featuring an exclusive blend of high-quality black teas from Kenya, Sri Lanka and Assam, this tea is guaranteed to produce a satisfying and comforting brew for all who try it.

Perhaps subtler in flavour than some of our other everyday blends, our English Tea No.1 produces a rich, deep amber liquid with a delicate bergamot throughout when brewed.

Expertly designed to both refresh and revive your senses and taste buds, our English Tea No.1 will make a unique new addition to any tea lover’s collection.

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.

    Rich and tasty

    This tea has a wonderful aroma of bergamot and is perfectly matched to a touch of milk. I drink it twice a day - one in the morning and one around 2PM. Oh, and if I drink a cup of a bad tea, I wash down the taste with this delicacy.

    Tea No 1

    I came across English no 1 during my trip to Moscow and I loved it. Upon my return back to the UK, I searched supermarkets such as Waitrose (and others) and realised that no one had any stock. Since 2014, I have been ordering this tea directly from Ahmed Tea and I honestly I can say It is the best English tea I have ever tasted! I am tea lover and I do not think I can get bored with this taste like i did with other brands. Also, Ahmed Tea's customer service is great!

    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!

    Best choice for everyday cup of tea

    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.
