When I first tried this I found the flavour very strong and bitter. BUT giving it another attempt I found my problem was I made it too strong for my tastes, subsequently if I make one infusion do 2 or 3 pots and use cooler water it tastes altogether better. So now it is a better brew and yet again another flavour I can go to when I want something to "sup"
Received the advent calendar on Friday, Excellently packaged, in a clip close box inside the delivery package. very intrigued by the calendar tea packages, it's a mystery as to what tea each day presents, as John has sneakily hidden the name of the tea under the envelope flap!
Problem is....I want to open it now...
Thank you for the extras you added as well.
All in all very very pleased with this product.
The decaff Earl Grey is wonderful - fragrant and flavoursome. I should also mention that Shibui offers a first class customer service. John noticed that I had made two orders on the same day (the second was an impulse buy after purchasing what I needed!) and he refunded the postage of the second order without being asked to, and sent me a very nice note to let me know. So expect a personal service - something that's getting rarer these days. Well done sir!
I bought this for a few of my relatives and every single person loved it a huge amount! One was even moved to tears and was extremely touched by the gesture. John was super helpful and made my large order much easier to deal with. Thank you a bunch for your brilliant service Shibui Tea! :D
