Tracked it down!

Visited a cafe in Stamford, Lincs. On a whim asked for Earl Grey tea and was blown away by the pot of tea brought to me. So much so, I had to ask as I paid, what brand it was as I’d never tasted E G tea like it. Usually, cafes have dusty, old tea in various flavours but some inspiration told me that wasn’t so in this place. I hadn’t heard of Shibui tea before but I’m delighted to have stumbled across it. Now I can get a sip of delight whenever I need it!

First purchase of Earl Grey

Have tried many and this is by far the best!

Fantastic Tea

Fantastic tea, fantastic service. The tea caddies are gorgeous we even get them filled with tea. Perfect


lovely and delivered very quickly

Top Class Tea

Beautifully packaged tea with a lovely fragrance and a perfectly balanced flavour.
We bought Earl Grey and Berry Hibiscus both are delicious.
The caddy is larger than anticipated and stylish enough to leave on display in ones kitchen.
We have yet to try the English Breakfast Tea sample but we are pretty sure it will be just as good as the Earl Grey and Berry Hibiscus.

Brewing Instructions

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!
