i Didn’t press the correct number of stars properly in the previous review. II would give the tea and the service 6 stars if it were possible.
Really nice blend of tea, the citrus complements the chamomile. The tea goes red, which was unexpected.
Really like this, especially in the evening
Had these recently at a posh hotel stay and had to buy them gorgeous flavour a lovely drink at bedtime.
Having had Mighty Leaf Camomile Citrus tea for many years I am delighted that Shibui Camomile and Citrus is even better. Beautiful tea at a sensible price. Speed of delivery was also brilliant.
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!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
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...
