I’ve had a lot of different teas but this is my ultimate favourite. I have it as a treat and love the combination. 100% recommend to anyone on the fence about buying this :)
I bought this as part of a gift and they loved this combination together
I usually have the Shibui chocolate and ginger tea at my favourite hotel/cafe here in our town, but of course it is shut during the lockdown. What a treat to have a good stock in my own house now - it is definitely keeping me going while I "stay at home"!
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...
