It tasted nothing like Rooibos or blueberry to us
Love the smell and taste.
I love the rooibos long time, and the blueberry compliments it so well!
Very refreshing blueberry tea.
When the tea was brewing the smell was fabulous, I have never had blueberry tea before and was unsure what to expect. I was impressed at the depth of smell from this little bag.
Once it had cooled down I began to sip the drink. Although it was fruity and did taste of blueberry this was not over powering and it was very easy to drink.
If you like fruity teas this is one I would certainly recommend.
I was also impressed that this tea can be purchased as bags or as loose tea. For a tube of 15 bags its £3.95, I think this is extremely reasonable. If you buy fruity tea bags from the super market you can pay more than this, this is a family run business, who personally I would prefer to support. You are getting good quality in these tea bags and good service.
It is clear that Shibui Tea is a brand you can trust and after receiving these samples I would have no worries about purchasing from them in the future. I always worry when getting products online as you don't really going to know what you are going to get, I was very happy with Shibui Tea.
I would like to thank Shibui Tea for sending the samples in exchange for an honest review.
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!
