Glad I was able to put all packaging in my compost. Enjoy being able to make a cup a bit stronger than the factory issue tea bag.
Great tea, very quick delivery, all the packaging went into the compost bin. Superb.
I enjoyed it that much I have just placed another order.
A really great tasting tea, had it in my local cafe, it was so good I had to ask what it was and immediately ordered some.
I ordered a cup of tea from my local cafe (The Staiths Cafe, Gateshead) and immediately smelled that this wasn’t your standard cup. So fresh tasting It was without a doubt the best cuppa I’ve ever had so Googled it and bought it online the same day.
If you like English Breakfast Tea then you’re going to love this. Worth every penny!
Go for it!
We love this tea, it's so fresh and lively in the morning. Great traditional flavour and memories of weekends at me grans house down in Bury. First tasted this at breakfast in the The Paper Mill, Lasswade and ordered several times since. We try a lot of other Shibui teas with varying success, and some of their tea products are fantastic too, caddies and pots. Always great service and quality products. We are definitely Shibui fans and the Breakfast Tea is our favourite.
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...
