Honestly the best loose leaf tea we've ever tasted. We spent ages trying to find a decent and strong enough loose leaf tea in plastic-free packaging, this ticks both boxes perfectly. No need to ever go tea shopping anywhere else now. Pre-Covid days, visiting friends and neighbours all commented how fantastic the tea is too. Delivery always super fast too and love the upbeat emails from John at Shibui too!

Lovely weekend tea to sip and enjoy. Great service too
A lovely tea - refreshes the parts that other teas miss. The delivery was very smooth and efficient
Very nice tea. Excellent service from Shibui. Have been using them for a while . Will continue to use them.
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!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
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...
