Mellow and light, yet deeply satisfying, this tea is just wonderful.
Lovely, fresh and fragrant tea. Very pleased.
My order was received overnight which was unexpected. I was looking for a substitute for Lapsang Souchong which seems to be unavailable. I ordered Dragonwell Lung Ching Organic as the description interested me. It is quite a mild tea. It would probably go very well with afternoon tea. If I was a cake eater, I would be serving it with cake. I will definitely order again.
I am a connoisseur of Green Tea and have been spoiled on the years with great quality from a local tea supplier. I decided to try Shibui, having lost direct contact with my local supplier. The tea is exquisite and as good a quality as I have experienced before and very nicely packaged.
I definitely recommend Shibui - great price, great service and most definitely Great Tea! Many thanks to the Shibui team..
Delicate, floral tea. Very pleasant. Would buy again.
My favourite tea, delicate, tasty and a great great tea. Love the new packaging too.
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...
