English Afternoon

The best part of the day must be spent sipping this favorite afternoon blend. This sparkling, coppery-red tea is a combination of select Indian, Ceylon and Kenyan black teas. And if that's not enough, a touch of Bergamot tickles the palette for the most English of brews. Bake a fresh batch of warm scones and sip and scoff the afternoon away. Add a slice of lemon to this tea, if preferred.

The quality of water used as 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.

Heat fresh water to a rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F.

Infusion Time
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea bag. 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 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.

    great flavor
    By Joey on January 29, 2020

    I am an American who was introduced to British tea many years ago. Since then, I cannot stand American tea. Brit tea is not so easy to get. Since finding Ahmad Tea, I feel like I have died and gone to heaven. English Afternoon tea is delicious. It is smooth, flavorful and not bitter. Its mild flavor is great for the cold Minnesota days.

    No thank you
    By James on November 21, 2019

    Sorry but I got this for Xmas and thought it was just a good black tea. Personally I can't stand Bergamot. I almost got sick. The name is somewhat misleading. A lesson in reading labels closely.

    FROM AHMAD TEA: Dear James, Thank you for your comment. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our English Afternoon tea due to its bergamot flavor. Please try our English Breakfast or Primetime blends for an excellent classic black tea without bergamot. Kind Regards, Ahmad Tea

    One of a Kind Tea ...Delicious
    By Cindy on May 7, 2019

    I have never found another Tea like this. It has the perfect small amount of bergamot flavor that makes it perfect. After putting milk and cream in it, it doesn't even need a sweetener .
    An awesome blend of tea I enjoy every day.

    Best Tea Ever
    By Maurice on December 25, 2018

    I have been buying this tea on line in the individual sealed packages, and found it to be a very flavorful and satisfying tea. I have a history of gall stones, and have been very careful on my tea intake to 1 tea a day. I find that one bag can go for 3 cups, and no signs of problem. I just purchased the 50 bags, not realizing they were not individually sealed, and did not have a dunking thread. They turned out to be the better than best tea. Thank you!!

    Our Favourite Tea!
    By Cathy on December 19, 2018

    We came across this wonderful tea a few years ago in some of the Home Sense stores in the Vancouver area. Unfortunately this is not a stocked item, so we searched for a local supplier. As there are no suppliers in Canada, we have been ordering our tea through Ahmad Tea in the US. We live close to the border so we have the order shipped to Blaine, Washington for pick up. We order by the case to take advantage of the free shipping. As you can tell, we will go the extra miles so that we can have our favourite tea!

    Great taste
    By Cathy on December 4, 2018

    A friend brought me some of this tea back from her vacation in London. I was sold after the first cup. What a lovely flavour. Sadly, I live in Canada and haven’t been able to find it here. I don’t give up easily. Hopefully I can find it.

    Unique taste
    By SamairaGG on November 5, 2017

    I found this tea by accident but I loved the taste of it. Best tea. For this tea, I do not have to use sweetener. The favor is naturally sweet. I have been loving every sip of it.

    This is the first Ahmad Tea I've tired and I'm blown away. Besides the fact that I'm generally a coffee drinker (espresso especially) on the occasions I drink black tea, I have always favored English Breakfast for it's kick and robust but not bitter taste, but the English Afternoon Tea is intoxicatingly aromatic. It tastes rich and completely different than anything I've ever tasted, whether I drink it plain, sweetened or with cream... yes it tastes fantastic with cream. Next I'll try it with lemon. My hat's off to Ahmhad Tea for this fantastic, obviously meticulous blend that has delighted me. Never was this excited about tea since I first tasted Thai Ice Tea 23 years ago. I'm sure if any of the ingredients were removed the sheer magic of it would be lost. I can't believe I'm going on and on like this about TEA! Peace Out

    Afternoon's the BEST EVER!!
    By Diana on August 27, 2015

    Decades ago a friend brought me a sampler of Ahmad Teas. I liked the English Afternoon most and have learned to love it like no other. It's a perfect morning beverage when coffee doesn't appeal.

    Distinctive taste
    By Hayley on September 23, 2014

    To me this tea is a nice middle point between English Breakfast and Earl Grey with a really distinctive taste. I really enjoy it with a splash of milk but I can imagine it would also be nice with a slice of lemon instead.

    By far me most favourite tea!
    By Laurie on September 22, 2014

    I look forward to my cup of English Afternoon Tea not just in the afternoon I drink it every chance I get. I have had other English Afternoon Teas but none compare to the exquisite flavour of Ahmad's English Afternoon Tea. I have had other teas by Ahmad and they are also wonderful, not bitter in the least...and I love a strong cup of tea.
    Thank-you Ahmad for making my tea time perfect each day!
