Earl Grey and Earl Grey Premium

After experiencing the intense aroma of the tea bags at a 5 star hotel I contacted them to find out the supplier I was pleased to hear the company was native! I experienced fast delivery and everything arrived in perfect condition. The moment I smelled the products I was taken back to the hotel and a relaxing break. The health benefits of bergamot oil are varied but help me immensely and I 100 percent recommend Shibui for these products.
Well done!

Earl grey and lapsing souchong

I opened these two after they promptly arrived. I had looked at other places, the big sellers, but saw that shibui were around Edinburgh so ordered from there. The first thing that hit me was the amazing aroma. I was caught up in a beautiful citrusy pinewood glade, sun dappled branches, the lot. Stood in my kitchen I was. Anyhow, took me back to when my Gran used to make this blend for breakfast. Laverly. Thank you so much. Perfect tea, loads of it, ideal freshness maintaining packaging, for a really reasonable price. Boom. Get ya brew on.


Really fresh taste!
