White Tea

Produced from the buds and sometimes including the very young leaves of the tea plant in spring. The name derives from the fine hairs on the young bud. White Tea is the least processed of all teas but include the most exclusive of teas. They are refreshing and light and do not have the grassy taste of green teas making them ideal for subtle blending.

Note that we are trying our best to eliminate the plastic used in our packaging and are pleased to say that our 100g tubes now are plastic free. The loose tea comes in a recyclable card tube which doubles as a caddy for storing your tea since it's food grade lined. The tea arrives in the tube sealed in a clear bag made from Natureflex. This is a material that can be composted - it's clever stuff.

NEW We have now sourced some plastic free & compostable bags for our larger sizes of 250g and 500g. Where they are plastic free it will say so in the description. Please note that while we move stock over some of our 250g/500g bags still have a plastic lining like most bags of this nature and are currently not recyclable. Natureflex is not strong enough to cope with this volume which is why we've sourced the other type so please bear with us in the transition. We're getting there...

Delicious

Great tasting tea and would highly recommend. The only negative I have is that the tea only fills about half the container, and a smaller tube filled to the top would be much more preferable for space saving and storage. But lovely tea and a lovely service, very fast postage, and I like the cardboard/recyclable packaging. (Just remember that loose leaf takes a little longer to brew than pg tipps or the like). Overall very happy.

Delicious Treat

A fabulous tea which uses all the senses to really appreciate the ginger and chocolate. It smells divine and tastes the same. My go to tea for when I feel like a treat. A must try tea connoisseurs.

Great!!

Top quality Earl Grey

I’ve been an Earl Grey drinker for many years. Occasionally I come across an EG that is head and shoulders above the others. Shibui’s EG is one of those teas. Previously I have highly rated The Mighty Leaf co and Fortnum and Mason’s EG. This is at least their equal - delicious. As well as the taste it is good value. I will be ordering again.

Swiftly delivered, beautifully packaged and gratefully received as a gift!
