The English Breakfast Decaff is beautifully balanced and delicate. It eases you into the day. I've got a stock in my home and in my office to get me through my mornings.
I absolutely love these.
First of all, they're biodegradable and unbleached, which means you don't get nasty additives in your tea. Second, they are small enough to brew tea in mugs, and yet big enough to make a pot of tea for four to six people if you need to. And finally, they have a decent long drawstring that doesn't rip, which is fantastic. Very happy!
Whilst on holiday in Scotland I had a cup of Earl grey tea in a small cafe, it was the best Earl grey I had ever tasted. I now won't buy anything but Shibui, beats anything else on the market.
They suit me very well. Well made and strong. I use them for real herbal teas like marshmallow and they work very well. I have dry eye problems and they make good eyepads as they cool down, especially if I use eyebright. These are a good product and easy to fill.
Best alternative we could find in Britain. Not as good as Swedish Blueberry tea. Needs more blueberry to compete - 25% and less of the other ingredients.
Was served this tea while on holiday in Scotland and once home tracked down a supplier and bought a box of the tea-pyramids. Best jasmine flavoured green tea I have ever been served. Delivered promptly. A delight to drink, floral and refreshing.
Simply the best.....first tasted in pret a manger and addicted since. Really delicious tea.
A lovely tea quickly despatched.
Love it! Especially the after taste! Can taste chocolate for ages afterwards! Could easily become an addict!
This tastes like a really good Assam tea, with a lovely, distinctive flavour. I don’t get on well with strong tea, so I make a slightly weaker brew, which is just perfect for me – refreshing & uplifting.
These are absolutely gorgeous. Initial slight chocolate taste followed by warming ginger. Top quality product well worth the cost.
Excellent service provided too.
This is the best green mint tea that I have ever tried.
Chocolate & Ginger
I love your tea! The flavours are intense and full of different notes as I sip, savour and swallow. I don’t do caffeine, so delighted that this is caffeine free. I like the fact that the bags are bio-degradable so can be recycled with my food waste. The packaging is easy on the eye – I like the shape of the tube and the colours. And I really appreciated the personal hand-written note on the packaging slip – made me feel appreciated, thank you. May your business go from strength to strength.
I get these empty tea bags in order to create coffee bags using my own coffee blend. Great for taking into the office and avoids the mess of a cafetière. The bags are big enough to allow the coffee grounds to brew in the mug and give a great cup of coffee. Wouldn't consider an alternative. Have been using them for a couple of years now and can't fault them ... or Shibui
Found out about the Mini Sampler through a tea blogger's heads-up. So pleased I did. Such good value I was able to try things that were new to me and to expand my horizons - thank you Shibui! Lovely tea and a lovely way to experiment :)
The earl grey has a really potent aroma and tastes great.
The Earl Grey T bags are gorgeous...taste is wonderful ..can only recommend !
I must say that I never tried better tea then Shibui Tea!
Can't wait to start offering your products to my customers in my Exclusive Piano Bar:)
A lovely warming blend of black tea and spices, fragrant and spicy
Love the tea it's so like mulled wine it's unbelievable
Very difficult to find tea this good. I have an Indian friend who has a private tea estate and that is the only other source I have for a rich, malty Assam like this with a satisfying mouthfeel. Highly recommended...
I discovered the earl grey tea in a cafe in Edinburgh (cafe class). It was so amazing that I remembered about it later that day and emailed the cafe and asked them if they supply it. They pointed me in the right direction and I ordered a huge supply for home. Love it!!
Very enjoyable. A dark rich flavour with a small kick. Maybe a big kick would be an improvement but that's a personal preference
I tried this tea at my work and it was love frome the first try❤Highly recomend!
Shibui Tea Filters
A lovely blend of black tea with cherry chunks. It is a very pleasant taste, akin to eating black cherry ice-cream.
A nice black tea with an authentic vanilla extract taste which is not overpowering. Suitable for any time of the day.
Customer service is very good, both in terms of helpful advice and prompt delivery.
Smells lovely and tastes just as good!
I opened these two after they promptly arrived. I had looked at other places, the big sellers, but saw that shibui were around Edinburgh so ordered from there. The first thing that hit me was the amazing aroma. I was caught up in a beautiful citrusy pinewood glade, sun dappled branches, the lot. Stood in my kitchen I was. Anyhow, took me back to when my Gran used to make this blend for breakfast. Laverly. Thank you so much. Perfect tea, loads of it, ideal freshness maintaining packaging, for a really reasonable price. Boom. Get ya brew on.
Tried my first cup of the Tropical Green tea at Scothot exhibition in Glasgow this week. By far the best green tea I have ever tasted and will be buying all my Green Tea from this company from now on.
Lovely strong tea
No really it is
I kind of like this tea however i can't taste any strawberry or mango, it has a slightly bitter citrus taste that slightly reminds me of grapefruit but less bitter. I'm drinking it but I'll be going for a different flavour next time. Blueberry rooibos is my fave so far.
A good quality tea with a really fresh, well-balanced bergamot. Several miles ahead of any other Earl Grey bag I've tried.
Ooooh I love this tea so much! It's soft and silky to drink - the milky notes making it a deliciously soothing, tasty tea. Lovely to watch the leaves unfurl as they brew. It is gorgeously aromatic- and made a grey morning at work into something very special.
If you like your tea tasty and strong you only need one tea spoon.
I like mine at 3/4 of a teaspoon.
I love the Earl Grey, the Tippy Assam is real good too a bit stronger than earl grey.
I will be re-ordering again very soon.
Its predominant toasted flavour carries undertones of grassiness, nut and smoke, weirdly giving it a coffee like twang!
I enjoyed this first thing in the morning. Despite not liking actual coffee, the similarity in essence was the perfect kick in the morning.

An enjoyable drink. If the chocolate flavour has more depth then this could be a cracker!
Nice little tea pot get 2 good mugs of tea out of it...lapsong tea very smoky really good caddy a good size too. Parcel arrived very quickly .
After my initial tea pot arriving broken in due to the postman's handling I phoned Shibui and they sent out a replacement teapot and couldn't of been more apologetic and helpful.
I was really impressed with the personal service including the hand written note inside my parcel and the coaster included which was beautiful along with a tea sample. It is these small touches that make all the difference which you do not often find these days.
I am really impressed with the tea pot itself, my only slight criticism is that small tea leaves do get through the grate. It makes a wonderful cup of tea though and looks lovely sitting out in the kitchen.
I am a particular fan of the African Chai, after trying it at Organic Delicious I had to order some.
Thank you for such wonderful service and for the lovely touches you include for your customers.
The title says it all. The difference in supermarket tea to this is vast. Really enjoying being a tea drinker again thanks to Shibui Tea.
