We needed a decaf to help my husband get a good uninterrupted night’s sleep and this works well. We purchased both Earl Grey and English Breakfast, which we mix 50/50 and the result is a refreshing and tasty cup of tea throughout the day.
Good product, quick dervice
I don't think there are many places to buy a decent decaffinated, loose leaf Earl Grey, so I'm very pleased to have found a supplier.
Tea always refreshing with a gentle taste. it's even good with skimmed milk.
I'm very impressed that all the packaging is recyclable.
It’s so good to find a truly delicious tasting decaf Earl Grey and I love that the packaging is compostable or recyclable. I will definitely be ordering this from Shibui again.
Having come to that age where caffeine tea keeps me up at night It's wonderful to discover a really yummy decaf Earl Grey. Every previous decaf has always been unsatisfyingly weak but this tea is truly full of flavour and very delicious.
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...
