Great tea

Easy to order, quick delivery and lovely touch with the hand written card.
Ordered the green tea, now one of my favourites. Also received some sample teas and am looking forward to trying them.
I will be a returning customer.

great taste

This was my first venture into buying "real" sencha. When I first tried it I mistakenly used too much tea in the pot and it was very astringent and frankly, unpleasant. I adjusted the amount of tea to one teaspoon in a two mug teapot and delightfully I drank a delicate and fresh-tasting tea. I love it now and it's part of my morning ritual. I've just ordered some matcha which I'm eager to try. I think there are over 35,000 scientific studies on Pub-med about the remarkable health benefits of green tea. Great service from Shibui, highly recommended quality products.

Very refreshing

The tea has a light, clean refreshing flavour. Everything I desired.

Vibrant green tea

simply the best sencha we have found and brilliant service

Amazing value, high quality sencha!

I've tried a large range of sencha from different suppliers and am still disappointed at the poor choice and quality in the UK. This and one other supplier are the only exceptions i've found so far.
As a result, i'm really happy to have found another great single origin tea supplier. This is one of the best sencha i've had outside of Japan for this price range. My other favourite in this price range was from The Tea Makers of London who also supply high quality single origin teas. Shibui's sencha has a sweeter flavour and a milder taste (which also means it's more delicate). The sencha from the Tea Makers of London has a (relatively) grassier and earthier taste which is more robust and punchier. My personal preference is Shibui's sencha but i'll be purchasing both in the future for different occasions.
This is a great tea!
Well done and a big thank you for bringing it to the UK market!

Cherry Pie

Loved this flavour. Very strong, so you really need just a little bit for a delicious cup of tea.
The delivery was very fast and I really appreciated the completely eco friendly packaging!

Another pick me up tea

Just the right balance of Tumeric and ginger to give you a distinctive hit of both. Highly recommended

A really refreshing Tea

A lovely fresh and lively taste that picks me just right when the day is dragging on a bit

My GoTo Bedtime cuppa

The taste is natural and I now make this the last drink of the day to prepare me for bed

Yet another delicious flavour.
I ordered it hoping that it’ll taste like the one sold in Pret. Not entirely sure but think it might be the exact same one but in any case, it’s great. It’s also not temperamental and doesn’t become bitter if you accidentally brew it for a bit longer, something I found with many other green teas.
The service was also quick and faultless. I’d recommend the company to anyone.
