Subtle and tasty

The English Breakfast Decaff is beautifully balanced and delicate. It eases you into the day. I've got a stock in my home and in my office to get me through my mornings.

If I was religious, I'd thank god, but I'm not, so thanks, Shibui!

I recently discovered I was allergic to caffeine and I was slowly coming to terms with the idea of not drinking tea at all Seriously, it was a dull few weeks. I'd tried tetley's decaf and a few others but they simply tasted like pond water with added milk.
So rather than being a cheap-skate, I thought I'd splash out and try a proper tea company. I'm all about shopping local and found these guys and ordered online. My rather swish looking pyramids arrived in 2 days and I used 4 bags that morning... Simply put, Awesome!
I've even made a few cups for friends without telling them it was decaf and they have commented on the 'nice brew' so a winner all round.
Thanks Shibui :-)

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!
