Beautiful flavoursome tea I love it will definitely be buying again
Order was filled and shipped very quickly. Arrived in excellent shape. Since this is part of a Christmas present I can’t comment on quality. Enough to say that person specifically asked for Shibui tea, saying “It’s the best ever!” Will definitely order more, for me this time!
Website was easy to navigate and informative. Delivery was very prompt. The product was well packaged and obviously packed with care. The tea was well flavoured. Have yet to try the two samples that were sent, but based on experience of the Breakfast Tea I’m sure it will be enjoyable. Will definitely purchase from Shibui again. 😁
I just love the taste of this tea, and would highly recommend it to any tea lover.
I've drunk a lot of tea over the years, but this is the only one that has me going back to the pot for second cup. Perfect every time
Being a bit of a Tea Buff, i can thoroughly recommend Shibui Tea..Best to leave it to brew for around 4/5 minutes, Obviously in a Teapot..If you don't use a Pot, you shouldn't be on here LOL..Bit expensive, but you get what you pay for, as the old saying goes...Best tea ive ever had.
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!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
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...
