I have been ordering tea from Shibui and have always been really impressed with the products and service. It's also nice to support a local business. The compostable packaging is a nice touch.
After moving away from caffeinated tea, I've struggled to find a decaf that still actually tastes like tea! This tea was just what I've been looking for! I brew it for a little longer (5mins) to get a stronger taste, as it is still a little weak for me after 3-4mins. Lovely flavour, will definitely be purchasing again! Thank you
Very tasty, wanted to buy bigger pack but also wanted to be plastic free and it di.dn't seem that the bigger pack was plastic free.
Arrived very promptly.
Since having to lower my caffeine intake, this splendid tea has become my staple. I would highly recommend!
I found it really difficult to find decaf loose black tea, until I found this company. Pleased I can help support an independent business, and get the benefit of great tea too!
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...
