Highly enjoyable to the palate. Will stick with this Tippy Assam from now on.
I love this tea mid morning. It’s light and refreshing but still strong great taste.
Really helpful team and super tea
The customer service is first rate.
I used to be a coffee drinker only. But a digestive problem required me to cut down on coffee big time. So the search for a delicious Tippy Assam began. I have tried quite a lot and Shibui is the VERY best one. I reallly look forward to it each morning. Delicious malty flavour and good strength.
I've been looking for a strong but good-tempered Assam tea for a while, and this is my favourite - full of flavour but not bitter. Great if you like builders' tea. Yields two brews per bag, if not three and copes well with soya milk.
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...
