You can personalise the card - both inside and out with your own message...
The card comes with 6 different teas and you can personalise the message inside...
The tea bags are biodegradable and can be put in your food waste bin. The wrappers are compostable and be home composted or also put in the food waste bin. So no plastic...
I got this as a birthday gift for my mum who absolutely loved it! It has a great selection of teas.
The recipients of my gift where delighted with their tea. This is such a great idea particularly in these times of lockdown. Thanks John for helping me stay in touch .
I received the tea card with personalized message as a gift and absolutely loved it! I then decided to send it as a gift and it's such a delightful idea. The custom message means it is just like sending a card, the tea is delicious and really high quality. A really nice way to get to know a company that I wouldn't have come across otherwise. Will definitely order again!
What a fabulous idea, a greeting card with tea bags. Both recipients loved the sentiment, loved trying the tea. Also fabulous customer service, righting an error I made. 10 stars all around. Will be back for more.
Received my first samples of Shibui tea from a friend in a birthday card. The card brightened up my day and I sat down for my first tea bag sample; It was the Earl Grey; delicate and moorish. It therefore, did not take me long before all tea bags were consumed and I became a convert to Shibui tea . I have now spread the word and hope others continue to do the same of this quality tea range Shibui.
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...
