My absolute favourite Tippy Assam

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.

Good strong Assam

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.

Brewing Instructions

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!
