This tea was like a warm hug. - warming with a definite chocolate taste. Everyone who has tried it loves it!
One of my favourite tea. Even the sente is intense. I just love it
Product arrived quickly, well packaged and included a couple of samples. Having tried this brand whilst visiting Scotland I was impressed with its flavour and aroma which led to an order being placed and I was not disappointed. It's nice to find something different and I look forward to trying some of the other flavours in the future.
This tea is just amazing -- probably the best caffeine-free blend I've ever had. Please keep doing what you're doing, Shibui!
Tastes like dark chocolate ginger biscuits!
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...
