I first tasted this tea (berry hibiscus) in a local independent coffee shop and loved it! Went back there again for another cuppa just to make sure I really did love it as so many fruit teas disappoint the second time round. It didn’t disappoint and well, I loved it just as much!!
Ordering online was amazingly easy. The information about the product was fab as well as the packaging; what was recyclable or compostable and NO plastic which is always important. I was kept up to date with the progress of my order. I opted for first class post and I wasn’t disappointed.
I will definitely be ordering from Shibui again and would recommend to everyone.
I am not a tea or coffee drinker and I have been looking for something to replace it for ages. I came across this tea at Soderberg and loved how much flavour it had!!!!! Unlike a lot of fruit tea I had tried which just tasted like mildly sweet hot water. The first Shibui tea I tried was berry hibiscus and loved it that much I ordered one of each fruit tea flavour and was not disappointed. Loooove the cherry pie. Super speedy delivery, great packaging, great price.
Had this in a cafe in Loughton who directed me to this website. This is the best fruit tea I’ve had. Three tablespoons to a pot. The caddy isn’t necessary unless you’re buying a lot as the 100g tubes work just fine.
This was recommended by a friend who mixed it with the rooibos tea in a filter and gave me a sample. Delicious tea, on its own too, also chilled. very quick service from shibui. Really happy discovering this tea.
Excellent service delivering a flavoursome refreshing tea
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
