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.
we have used various tea bags in the past in our cafe to make English breakfast tea. We were never totally satisfied until we have discovered Shibui. It has great taste, and rich flavour. We are very happy to serve our customers Shibui.
If you like a delicious cup of tea with no bitter aftertase then this product is for you, bought this product after having it once in Baltic Social in Liverpool, the taste stayed with me and i just had to buy it. I havent been disappointed every cup just as good as the last.
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...
