[Amazon.ca] AHMAD TEA Twelve Teas, 60 Count $13.30

This tea doesn't drop in price however it's on for a limited time, typically it's out of stock all year until now and the next few months.
While 13 bucks for 60 is expensive, this is a sampler where you get to try 12 different teas. It contains 3 boxes in it. It'd make a great small gift for someone who likes tea casually. For those who wish to up the ante, there are certainly better teas to spend money on like Vahdam but you get a bigger bang for your buck in terms of quantity when it comes to Ahmad.

You could also go to a grocery store like food basics and buy the ~500g loose leaf version for 8 dollars
It's also on amazon for 8 bucks once in a while
But in my original post, it's a sampler and samplers always tend to be more expensive. It's also presented in a nice big pretty box

Also instead of paying 6 bucks for bagged tea, you can pay 8 bucks for loose leaf https://www.amazon.ca/AHMAD-Aromatic-Ea ... 00GRS0C0M/

I found this the other day and ordered to try. It didn't taste very good. I had also ordered the 100 count of Stash earl grey tea and it's much better, although more expensive.

speaking of which, I ordered stash's double bergamot. It's on a whole different level with the oil. I thought it would be just a bit stronger than twinnings but it felt like they dumped a truck load of it to the point where it's almost unbearable.

Does RCS sell the individual flavours or this this 12 tea pack in particular?

Ok, so that's the double bergamot. I ordered the "regular", and it was good. The Ahmad earl grey taste like strong black tea with weal earl grey flavor, similar to the Irressitible (by Metro, Food Basic) earl grey or Twinnings.

Between irresistable and twinnings, which had a stronger bergamot flavour?

It's been a while since I tasted Twinnings earl grey. It was weak. The Irresistable earl grey is on sale again this week at Metro, box of 48 bags for $1.99.

Thanks, I tried the irresistable earl grey today and it tasted like a dirt cheap tea you'd find somewhere for free. The earl grey was very faint and imo not even comparable to Twinnings. Not to mention Irresistable's black tea was harsh, bitter and murky where you wouldn't find the complex flavours of a black tea.
But if you find Twinnings to be equally as weak, perhaps you might want to try Stash's double bergamot. I personally found it to be awfully over powering but it seems to be popular on Amazon. It can also be found in Walmart.

All you tea connoisseurs have any recommendations for green tea? Specifically Jasmin green. Seems hard to find something reasonable here.

That's junk, and price reflects it...
