One of my favorite breakfast teas. Nothing stands out, nothing is out of balance.

drank English Tea No. 1 by Ahmad Tea

I really enjoy this tea. With the bergamot it starts hinting at an earl grey, but with all the best breakfast tea qualities too. It’s really well balanced for my sensibilities of what I would like first thing in the morning as I wake up.

This is ok for a basic earl grey. I always think I should like it better than I do.

I think if I would remember to try it in the afternoon, this would be, as advertised, a very good late afternoon tea. It’s a bit lighter in flavor than I generally enjoy, and certainly need for the morning.

My last teabag of this one. I hope I can find again. This was delightful every time I enjoyed it.

I’ve had the Dilmah breakfast tea often, because I picked some up when I was in Sri Lanka a few years ago. Recently I went over to a friend’s house who pushed some on me and I was like “I already have this.” But now that I got home, I realize it’s the earl grey, and I in fact, have not had that before. Loving it! Just good tea.

Perfect St. Pattys day cuppa, reminding me of my recent trip to Northern Ireland.

Not my favorite morning tea, but I can appreciate that others really like this.

Most Enjoys:
A strong black tea, preferably from Sri Lanka or India. I tend to steep it a little over to get just a touch of bitterness, which I enjoy.

My Ratings:
100-90: One of my favorites, a tea that stopped me from doing whatever I was doing, to just enjoy its flavor.
89-80: I would buy again, I enjoy, but one that I can have while rushing around or reading or internet browsing – my standard breakfast teas probably fall in this range. I very much enjoy them.
79-70: An good tea. It’s pleasing in some way and I may buy it again but I wouldn’t go out of my way to make sure I have it in stock.
69-60: A tea I enjoyed, but nothing really stood out to me.
59-50: Better than average, but nothing that delighted or pleased me. It was fine.
49-1: Varying degrees of I didn’t enjoy this tea. The lower the rating goes, the more there was at least one element that I actively did not like.
