I loved my tea advent calendar and I shared my experience each day on FB which gave others the opportunity to consider which flavours they might like.
Best one yet!
This is the third year ( I think!) that my lovely sister has bought me the tea advent calendar from Shibui and it's the best one yet. The range of teas were brilliant - there were some flavours I thought I was going to dislike (tumeric, rooibos) but I made the teas following the instructions, and all were delicious. I had the caffeine teas, but I like that there is a caffeine-free option. There are always little extras in the beautiful box too - measuring spoon, tea bags (to put the looses leaves in) and this year, some lovely gingerbread tea with instructions to make a gingerbread latte. I love the book with all the teas in - there's always a little story about the tea, instructions on how to make it and tips about different ways to enjoy the tea. Each pouch or tea probably made 3 cups, so extremely generous portions. Everything is beautifully packaged and the illustrations on the book and pouches are lovely. I wrote notes in the book with the gorgeous pencil that was enclosed (another extra treat!). I will start dropping hints now about how good this one was....and maybe I'll get another one from my sister next advent. If not, I'll be buying my own as it's so good!
Great idea and looked hand made and packed
I loved the concept and the little extras in the box. I think my main suggestion would be for less fruit flavoured teas as we didn't really like them and ended up throwing them away after 1 cup. I ended up looking through the advent calendar to try to find ones we would like so unfortunately not quite what I was hoping for.
Loved the calendar, the teas were great, it was beautifully packaged, tried a few new things, great fun seeing what came each day and v generous portions of each one.
Great teas, compostable packaging, not really a calendar
I loved trying all the different teas, and I appreciate the eco friendly packaging and extra gingerbread tea but I was a bit disappointed when I opened it to find it wasn’t structured as an advent calendar really.
