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

Tippy Assam is tops

Great presentation in a simple but secure brown paper bag.
Delicious tea which I have enjoyed at all times of day.
Although Assam is to the east it strongly reminds me of past times as a medical
student visiting the tea estates around Darjeeling when I was attached to the tea planters hospital there during an elective

This tea haas quite a kick and is definitely for waking up to

So flavourful, one of my new favourites!

Purchased 3 of these as gifts

I own one myself and decided to buy one for my sister for her birthday.

It arrived and was packaged really well, with a wide variety of teas - made a lovely gift - so much so, I decided to buy two more for my parents.

They’re great cups and the teas are delicious.

The customer service and correspondence with John was excellent throughout (I made a mistake and he was quick to amend!)

I couldn’t recommend the cup, tea and Shibui-tea enough!

Such a pleasant taste!

I have PCOS and read of spearmints benefits for lowering androgen levels. I bought it solely for that purpose, but it has fast become one of my favourite teas. Compared to other tisanes that I've tried, it isn't too intense for my tastebuds. I feared it would taste like toothpaste, but that certainly wasn't the case. It's so perfectly balanced, not too sweet nor too minty. Just lovely!


I’m so happy I’ve finally found good quality organic spearmint tea! I’d definitely recommend, quick delivery and great value for price! X

classic breakfast with floral notes

A big fan of this black tea. Somehow manages to be a classic full-bodied English breakfast but with lighter floral notes too.
