One pyramid bag does a large mug perfectly and great for a teapot too of course...
Show off your tea in style with our stainless steel caddies. Don't be surprised that they come with the odd blemish to look more used. We like them that way...
The card tubes are recyclable and the tea inside is packed in a clear Natureflex wrapper - which is completely compostable. So no plastic. The tubes are also food grade lined so are a great way to store your tea once opened. All good.
Our tea bags are made from biodegradable cornstarch so can be put in with your food waste for commercial composting. They're not suitable for home composting.
A different way to take matcha. The coating goes into the tea and compliments the sencha really well. One of my favourites and if you brew it right using cooled boiling water then it won't taste bitter and actually kind of sweet.
Great Taste Award Winner 2018.
Having been recommended this tea we had high hopes and were not disappointed! The blend of matcha and sencha is really excellent, with neither overpowering the other.
Customer service was excellent and we could tell we were ordering from a company that cares about their product and consumers.
Best green tea yet! Order with every purchase.
It's so hard to find a great green tea with a perfect blend of taste, aroma and texture. This matcha tea was perfect - as the only other green tea I found to be similar was directly ordered from Japan! Thanks guys! Definitely recommend this brew!
We love Shibui Tea and can't fault any of them. Of course there are some we prefer above other but would give all 5 star rating. We love Matcha and weren't quite sure at first but we've fallen in love with it just like all the others we've ordered.
Find this slightly bitter, but it's still a pleasant drink
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!

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...
