Amazing taste, this is be the perfect alternative when one doesn't want to drink too much theine throughout the day. Smells incredible in the cupboard as well :)
One of my favourite. Smells delicious and taste even better. Its like having cherry pie in the cup. 1 tea spoon enough for tea pot
Absolutely delicious, strong and not too sweet. I played around a bit to get quantity right for me. Will definitely buy again
I love Shibui teas, especially orange and ginger but just discovered Cherry Pie loose tea and absolutely love it, also you only need a teaspoonful to make the most delicious sour cherry drink .
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.
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...
