Good quality Genmaicha

This is a good quality genmaicha. The bancha, rice and popcorn ratios are well balanced, giving a nice mellow taste. After repeated brews, I found the rice starts to dissolve (a little) into the tea, adding more flavours of roasted rice. I've not seen this in other genmaicha i've had, but i think it's a nice touch as you get less of the caffeine from the bancha but keep the roasted rice flavours characteristic of this tea type. I start drinking this in the late afternoon and it can last me through the evening with repeated brews.

The best

I first had this in Shanghai and loved it. This is every bit as good and I’m delighted to get it locally.

Amazing tea!

Just the perfect balance between a roasty "pop-corn" taste and the subtle flavour of a high quality Japanese green tea. I'm very pleased!

Delicious

Great tasting tea and would highly recommend. The only negative I have is that the tea only fills about half the container, and a smaller tube filled to the top would be much more preferable for space saving and storage. But lovely tea and a lovely service, very fast postage, and I like the cardboard/recyclable packaging. (Just remember that loose leaf takes a little longer to brew than pg tipps or the like). Overall very happy.

Delicious Treat

A fabulous tea which uses all the senses to really appreciate the ginger and chocolate. It smells divine and tastes the same. My go to tea for when I feel like a treat. A must try tea connoisseurs.

Great!!

Top quality Earl Grey

I’ve been an Earl Grey drinker for many years. Occasionally I come across an EG that is head and shoulders above the others. Shibui’s EG is one of those teas. Previously I have highly rated The Mighty Leaf co and Fortnum and Mason’s EG. This is at least their equal - delicious. As well as the taste it is good value. I will be ordering again.

Swiftly delivered, beautifully packaged and gratefully received as a gift!
