I'm not normally a fan of rooibos tea but I'm a keen earl grey drinker and this was a really pleasant surprise. Not too strong in either aspect but really full of flavour
As good as the original?
I enjoyed this and glad I tried it but prefer the original earl grey.
I am a big fan of rooibos earl grey and usually have mine with milk. Shibui is my go-to for this blend because it doesn't overwhelm. Other suppliers that I have tried go hard on the essential oils - to the point where their version gives me acid reflux. Shibui's blend contains enough that it clearly tastes like earl grey, but not so much that I can't stomach it. The rooibos base gives this tea a nice round flavour, with the added benefit that it doesn't stain your teeth or contain caffeine.
This tea has so much more flavour than other brands and is really a great pick me up with lovely, rounded flavours. I'm on my 3rd tub now.
Our favourite tea
Absolutely delicious. This is our go to tea - we’re on our 12th or so tub now. It’s light and refreshing and really hits the spot.
