Call off the dogs, the hunt is over!
Having searched t'interweb, as well as a host of independent shops and supermarkets for mint tea with flavour, I was sitting in one of my favourite Liverpool breakfast spots, when a very friendly, scouse waiter, delivered to me a splendid pot of Shibui organic, mint tea. Zinging with flavour, it convinced me that my tea-drinking future lie not in Pukka or any of the other, rather tasteless brands, but in the chi offered by this charming, small business.
I now gain great delight every time I prepare a pot of this spearmint tea, knowing that my tastebuds will be sufficiently tickled. I also like the fact that it's loose leaf, so cuts down on waste, and is organic, so my insides won't be destroyed by herbicides and pesticides.
If you're looking for a mint tea with flavour, give Shibui a try. Your mouth will thank you for it.
