Tippy Assam is the best!

I first discovered Shibui's Tippy Assam tea earlier this month at a b&b near Oxford. Maybe it was the pleasant surroundings but it was definitely the best cup of tea I've ever had! I tracked it down when I came home and ordered more and have not been disappointed! My favourite tea ever!

Tippy Assam

This is my favourite out of the Shibui teas that I have tried. It has a lovely flavour, and is an excellent all day brew, only wish it came in a larger size than 250g. Great service and speedy delivery. Love the fact that the packaging is all compostable or recyclable.

My favourite tea :)

Tippy Assam is by far the best tea in my opinion. Support the little guy with some lovely brews. Highly recommended.

Strong and Characterful

This is a great morning tea either black or with milk. Never too bitter but still has an excellent full bodied taste. As with the majority of the Shibui range, good quality at a good price.

Tippy Assam - what a tea!

This tea is a fabulous tea. It has a good size of leaf and is quite a strong tea. As I am a strong tea drinker, this suits me to the ground. If you like a tea that is not wishy washy, this is the tea for you. It comes in loose and also in wee paper t-bags too (no Plastic!). Enjoy

Lovely tea!

This is a very smooth tea. Very nice on its own or with a little bit of honey. I add milk hen I brew it quite strong and you can still taste and smell the cinnamon. Will definitely order again!

Ginger and chocolate tea

This is a delicious tea with a pure authentic taste. I love ginger tea, but this has a extra smoothness to it, with a lovely aroma.

Lovely tea

I got given the gingerbread tea for Christmas and as soon as it ran out I couldn't help but buy some more, and try some of the other teas. The orange rooibos is mad good and the gingerbread is lovely as always. I'm already running out again!

Jasmine Pearl

I absolutely love this tea and to find actual pearls in the tea bags and not just a plain old teabag is amazing. Took me ages to find this company as I tasted this brand at a cafe and I am so glad I have found you.

Moroccan Mint

Quite cleansing and refreshing.

First time we’ve tried this Moroccan Mint tea and must admit that it’s a step up in quality to our normal mint tea. Very fresh and cleansing on the palate. Difficult to over brew but just seems to intensify in flavour the longer you leave it.
