Fantastic tea, and great service. Will be buying again!
Most ginger (gingerbread) tea I have are quite bitter and strong taste of ginger which is something I really like actually but this tea has both the lovely taste of ginger and something sweet. I guess that’s why it’s called gingerbread tea haha but anyway it’s amazing. I’m a big fan of any kind of ginger tea, I will be buying more when mine runs out :)
I wondered if this tea could equal the Chocolate and Ginger mix which I love - it does! The depth and warmth of cinnamon and cardamom entwined with liquorice is like sinking into heaven. Shibui has a magical way with teas!
A refreshing drink with a hint of liquorice and lots of flavour
Great tea, refreshing and full of flavour.
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!

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...
