Great tea and top class service

Shibui English Breakfast is a lovely tea. Highly recommended. I am impressed by the service. I feel really valued as a customer.

The best tasting black tea!

I have been buying Shibui tea for years now. Great tasting tea and great service, always delivered quickly with a personal note to say thank you for the order :) Will never change to a different brand. It’s the one thing I crave when I’m away from home, I always look forward to coming back and sitting down with a freshly brewed mug of Shibui English breakfast tea!

A pleasant and refreshing flavour but

A pleasant and refreshing flavour. I was trying leaf tea to avoid the dust that comes with most tea bags but sadly dust, though less than with tea bags, evaded the finest of strainers.

Breakfast tea with a taste

Completely different from ordinary tea bags.
Even though I am a coffee drinker, I look forward to my first cup of tea.

What a delight!

After having tea in one of our favourite food places, I enquired about what tea they were using and found the Shibui brand. I ordered the breakfast tea, which I already knew was delicious, but I got a couple of free samples too - Chamomile and a Jasmine. They were gorgeous! I love that I found a tea that I don't have to put milk in, because honestly, the taste stands alone and adding milk wouldn't do it the justice it deserves. I'm so happy to have found this tea....I'll definitely be back for more.

Quiet Time

I like to sit down halfway through the morning and enjoy a nice cup of Breakfast tea on its own. Nice flavor!
