  • Advent Calendar 2023


    Sadly there is not a 2023 Shibui Advent Calendar.

    After careful consideration we have chosen not to redo the calendar this year.

    Instead we have a Christmas collection of 12 different festive teas which can be found by clicking here.

    Amazing teas

    I loved my tea advent calendar and I shared my experience each day on FB which gave others the opportunity to consider which flavours they might like.

    Best one yet!

    This is the third year ( I think!) that my lovely sister has bought me the tea advent calendar from Shibui and it's the best one yet. The range of teas were brilliant - there were some flavours I thought I was going to dislike (tumeric, rooibos) but I made the teas following the instructions, and all were delicious. I had the caffeine teas, but I like that there is a caffeine-free option. There are always little extras in the beautiful box too - measuring spoon, tea bags (to put the looses leaves in) and this year, some lovely gingerbread tea with instructions to make a gingerbread latte. I love the book with all the teas in - there's always a little story about the tea, instructions on how to make it and tips about different ways to enjoy the tea. Each pouch or tea probably made 3 cups, so extremely generous portions. Everything is beautifully packaged and the illustrations on the book and pouches are lovely. I wrote notes in the book with the gorgeous pencil that was enclosed (another extra treat!). I will start dropping hints now about how good this one was....and maybe I'll get another one from my sister next advent. If not, I'll be buying my own as it's so good!

    Great idea and looked hand made and packed

    I loved the concept and the little extras in the box. I think my main suggestion would be for less fruit flavoured teas as we didn't really like them and ended up throwing them away after 1 cup. I ended up looking through the advent calendar to try to find ones we would like so unfortunately not quite what I was hoping for.

    Advent calendar

    Loved the calendar, the teas were great, it was beautifully packaged, tried a few new things, great fun seeing what came each day and v generous portions of each one.

    Great teas, compostable packaging, not really a calendar

    I loved trying all the different teas, and I appreciate the eco friendly packaging and extra gingerbread tea but I was a bit disappointed when I opened it to find it wasn’t structured as an advent calendar really.

    Excellent quality, a lovely gift

    The calendar has a great range of interesting and delicious teas. It arrived well before the start of December and was packaged beautifully.

    Clearly a lot of though has gone in to how the pack was put together and the information booklet and tea scoop were high quality additional touches.

    Very pleased and looking forward to next year's calendar.

    Fantastic way to countdown to Christmas!

    I'm loving this advent calendar. I made a deal with myself to try at least one cup of tea from each day's surprise pouch and not look ahead and spoil said surprise. It's only the 21st but I'm pleased to say I have enjoyed each and every one - and I'm not generally very adventurous tea wise. Count me in next year!

    Lovely way to try new teas

    Over the years I have tried a great many of the Shibui loose teas. Up to day 20 of the Advent selection I have been introduced to one or two new (to me) ones and been reminded of some previous favourites - all to be bought again over the next year. Whether I like the teas or not they are always a fantastic quality. So far there have been none that I wouldn't consider (apart from Lapsang which is just a big NO, NO, NO don't make me drink that - but I know that others absolutely love it). Next year's box will be the caffeine free one as I can't always control the brewing time and don't like my black tea too strong. Overall, absolutely delighted with the selection. And (as an afterthought), the measuring spoon seems to provide the best quantity of any that I have used in the past.

    Love this!

    This is the second year I’ve had the advent calendar. I absolutely love it. The tea is so good, just on another level from anything in the supermarket. Worth every penny.

    Advent calendar - amazing!

    Having bought two advent calendars on a whim for myself and a tea-loving friend, we have really enjoyed them. A lovely range of high-quality, fragrant teas with excellent documentation. It’s felt like such a treat to enjoy them.
