I had already had Shibui gingerbread tea at a local tea room, so I knew how gorgeous it is.
The online service and delivery Shibui operate is equally impressive.
This tea is absolutely lovely, I was a bit sceptical of a gingerbread tasting tea but it certainly is a treat to the taste buds!
A warm hug in a mug! This is one of my favourite teas by Shibui
Also love the fact that Shibui is going plastic free! All teas are just great! :)
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...
