Best tea

This tea is much better than the Twinings. It has more flavour. Highly recommended.

Best Earl Grey I’ve ever tasted.

Discovered Shibui Earl Grey in local tea shop and had to find it. Absolutely delicious, the best I’ve tasted and far better even than Twinnings. Buying was easy and delivery very fast. Can not recommend enough.

Delicious tea!

Best I've ever had - a bit pricey but for the best this is worth it! Full of flavour - not weak - floral perfume but not overwhelming/ bergamot present and strong but again balanced just right. Delivered extremely fast! Will be buying again.

Brewing Instructions

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!
