A very popular tea in China called Zhucha - meaning pearl tea. Green tea leaves are rolled into small pearls which keeps the leaves fresher for longer. A wonderfully smooth green tea with a hint of smokiness.

A balanced and fine tea

When steeped for a few minutes, it displays powerful aromas of spring flowers enhanced by woody and malty notes. A very rich and flavoursome tea, which is excellent for energy boost both in the early morning and /or afternoon.

A Winter Warmer

If you're looking for something with a subtle smoky finish that gives you a reason to drag yourself out of bed on a cold winter's morning, look no further.

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!
