This is a supe tea; full of flavour but with that hint of blood orange which gives it that added lift and a background of a sharp yet mellow fruit. It is the epitome of what a tea should be.
Blood orange is my new favourite tea - really glad I discovered it through Shibui. A good alternative to earl grey. Speedily and efficiently delivered.
An excellent blend of Chinese and Ceylon and oranges with a delicate aftertaste of safflowers. Really clever blend which is a pleasure to drink.
If you love orange or spiced teas, this is the one for you.
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...
