Tippy Assam

This is my favourite out of the Shibui teas that I have tried. It has a lovely flavour, and is an excellent all day brew, only wish it came in a larger size than 250g. Great service and speedy delivery. Love the fact that the packaging is all compostable or recyclable.

My favourite tea :)

Tippy Assam is by far the best tea in my opinion. Support the little guy with some lovely brews. Highly recommended.

Strong and Characterful

This is a great morning tea either black or with milk. Never too bitter but still has an excellent full bodied taste. As with the majority of the Shibui range, good quality at a good price.

Tippy Assam - what a tea!

This tea is a fabulous tea. It has a good size of leaf and is quite a strong tea. As I am a strong tea drinker, this suits me to the ground. If you like a tea that is not wishy washy, this is the tea for you. It comes in loose and also in wee paper t-bags too (no Plastic!). Enjoy

Great morning cuppa!

Being a herbal and infusion tea girl, I was reluctant to try this black tea. Well, I am sooo glad I did - I absolutely love it - it is such a great morning cuppa that I think it might eventually replace my morning coffee every day, not just some days!! Great strong with just a splash of milk xx

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.

Chocolate & Ginger

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 taste and great service. Love it!

Earl Grey

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!
