English Tea No.1
This Ahmad Tea exclusive blend and best seller is a tea for all occasions and any accompaniments. More fragrant than an English Breakfast blend with less bergamot than an Earl Grey blend, this is both satisfyingly smooth and subtly fragrant. A winning combination we're sure you'll agree. Very drinkable with or without milk and very nice for tea and English biscuits.
The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water.
Heat fresh water to a rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
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.
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.
This black tea has more caffeine than teas in our green tea range. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.
