I love this. I have bought it a couple of times and would buy in bigger quantities but only 50g is plastic free at the moment I think.
I used to be a snob about only using fresh mint leaves but this tastes so good.
This tea is very delicious and you can certainly taste the peppermint. Best peppermint tea I have tasted.
By far the best peppermint tea leaves I have ever had. Rivals the fresh stuff- in fact these tea leaves come alive & turn vibrant green with a dose of hot water. Oh, the aroma? Heavenly...
This is possibly the best mint tea I've had. It's very fresh and packs a punch.
Love all the teas I've received so far from Shibui and the peppermint has a lovely, refreshing taste. Great to support an independent family business too.
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!

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...
