This tea is a bit of an aquired taste I think. It tastes quite grassy, which I'm starting to enjoy more, but not loving it as much as the other teas I have bought from Shibui. I like the ethos of the company and the sustainable packaging so will definitely be a return customer.
I’m no expert but to me this tea doesn’t taste of much at all. It also contains v small particles that I’m unable to sieve & so they end up in my cuppa.
Bought out of interest and a very nice tea. Subtle flavour that works with both milk and without IMO
It's great to find a Honeybush tea which is organic, loose leaf and so tasty. Thank you so much. I will order again. Have already started to spread the word.
First class service,ordered one day and delivered the next day!Great tasting tea,terrific value and I really enjoyed the free sample.My next order will include the Rooibos with orange flavour.
First time I’ve brought this flavour and I’m so glad I gave it ago a loved it it fabulous 😍😍
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...
