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.

    My Favorite Tea
    By Dale on March 20, 2020

    I have a fondness for strong black teas. I also have an ulcer. I am not sure what it is in the teas that causes the black tea to upset my stomach, but something in them does. I can drink tea in the morning for a week or two and then my stomach becomes unsettled. But with Ahmed English breakfast tea, I can drink it very strong and it does not bother my stomach. It is delightful to be able to enjoy my tea every morning instead of enjoying it intermittently. Thank you for such a wonderful tea.

    a top-notch version of a classic black tea
    By ilexfruit on February 12, 2020

    I purchased these teabags for travel and find they make tea-brewing on the road easy. I love my black teas strong, so this isn't my early-morning tea, but I do find it's quite nice for later in the day

    good anytime
    By Barbara on December 5, 2019

    This is my go-to tea any time of day. I brew it strong, yet it's not bitter. I fill a thermos with hot tea and carry it with me all day, and it's still a decent hot beverage after many hours.

    Perfect for my evening tea
    By Stephanie G. on May 14, 2019

    This tea has a lovely, round flavor, with no bitterness or harshness. I love it day or night, but it's especially nice in the evening. No jitters! Makes a nice iced tea, as well.

    I absolutely love this tea. I love the tea bags which works for me although I might try the loose tea also. The tea is the best I have ever had and will continue to order it. I can't say enough about the tea other than it's wonderful!

    Must Have
    By Laurie on August 30, 2018

    I received this tea as a gift from a friend and loved it. I then came upon it in a TJ Maxx and purchased every box they had. I was hooked on its flavor.
    I particularly like the round 50 count box container. I was so pleased to be able to purchase it directly from Ahmad tea. Very quick service!

    Best Ever
    By Carol on May 22, 2018

    I was introduced to Ahmad English Breakfast by a friend and now I consider it my absolute favorite all-around hot beverage! This tea is smooth with a wonderful aroma. It is in the category of "comfort food". A wonderful lift morning, noon and evening. I have enjoyed this blend immensely!

    full-flavored and robust
    By donald on April 12, 2018

    my order was placed for the round tea bags; they fit nicely in the cup, not so clunky, and are full of flavor--not much air in the bag as with the square tea bags. will buy again and recommend them for others as well.

    Best Tea I Have Ever Tried, 5+ stars
    By McBride Laurie on February 23, 2018

    I have tried a lot of black teas but none could compare to this tea.
    Because I was multitasking, I have brewed this tea longer than the recommended time & sometimes the water was less than 212 degrees.
    The tea may have been stronger than I prefer, but it still tasted good.
    And even when I brewed it at a lower temperature, I may not have fully extracted all the flavor but it still tasted amazing.
    This tea is so smooth that if I brew it for approximately 3 - 3 & 1/2 minutes I can drink it with just a bit of sugar and no milk.
    And that’s convenient for when I’m out & about and I want a cup of tea but there’s no milk available.
    I have found this tea at World Market/Cost Plus.
    There’s 20 unwrapped tea bags with a string & a tea tag and it comes in a metal tin that looks like a British telephone booth.
    Highly Recommend this tea and the earl grey tea.

    Ahmad English Breakfast Tea
    By Diane on October 1, 2017

    Best English tea I ever tasted, have been drinking it since I found it at a store and now I am not able to find it. I am addicted to this "English Breakfast Tea" great flavor in a tea bag, the best tea I ever had!!! I would like to order 2 boxes of the 50 count round tea bags. I am running low and I can not find this brand in my local grocery stores. Your tea is better than the English breakfast tea I bought at a tea shop!!!!!

    Favorite English Breakfast
    By Cindy on March 14, 2016

    This is my go to morning tea every day and it's even replaced my morning coffee ritual. I steep it for about 4 minutes and add a bit of milk and it's perfection! Thanks Ahmad for the high quality teas :)

    Breakfast tea
    By Faith on December 30, 2015

    I found this brand of tea in a grocery store in Southern Utah. I love strong black tea having been raised on it in the UK. When I moved the US it was hard to find a good tea until I came across this brand. I use the English Breakfast tea for breakfast and Earl Grey throughout the day. This is an excellent and very consistent tea.

    Unlike any other!
    By Clinton Turner on February 19, 2015

    Ahmad Tea's English Breakfast is unlike any other I've had before. When I first smelt a sachet of this tea, the fragrance conjured in my mind images of the Palace of Westminster and red double-decker buses. I was mighty eager then to make the first cup. After I infused the tea and added a bit of sweetener, I took two sips and was impressed. I don't have to add milk to this particular English Breakfast tea. For me it is perfect with only an addition of sweetener. The flavour is rich and each cup is meant to be thoroughly enjoyed.

    What a wonderful blend!
    By Susan on September 23, 2014

    This blend made me fall in love with tea all over again. I purchased a decorative tin in London last summer and didn’t consider the quality of the tea until I tried a cup back home to the USA. What a wonderful blend! Once cup transports me back to a cafe on the Thames, keeping an eye out for Sherlock. It’s a trip to London in a little warm cup. I’m so glad I can find it here in the States.
