Lapsang Souchong
"The Big Smokey"
Lapsang Souchong is a Black Tea, famous for it's super smoky aroma and flavour. From China this tea has been dried over cedar wood fires and gains a smokey flavour. It is a popular tea today, but is definitely an acquired taste.

Unfortunately due to supply and regulation issues this tea is out of stock. Currently all lapsang tea that is coming from China into the EU has residues due to the process of smoking of the tea - this is currently non-compliant with EU standard. The Tea producers are aware of this and working hard to resolve the problem.

About Lapsang Souchong

Do you like smoky whisky, marmite or Guinness flavours? You'll not be disappointed with this Lapsang Souchong Loose tea; it is smoked with cedar wood and pines. Why so smoky? In the early 17th century when export to Europe started, the traditional green teas did not travel well and quickly lost quality during the 15-18 month journey across land and sea. The producers developed different drying methods in order to keep the tea for longer, this consisted of racks built over ovens that allowed the heat to rise up through vents in the ceiling and into the drying room above. To fire the ovens, they used local pine wood from the forests near the factories and as the wood slowly burned, it gave off a certain amount of smoke that was absorbed by the drying tea leaves. This process is still used and gives the tea the distinct smokey flavour we know (and love) today.

Service rating : first class service is the most important aspect. The only negative is the free dispatch is getting slower!
Product : This was a new one for me, a trial you might say! I would not want to drink it all the time but like the smoky overtones.

An excellent service, tea was well packaged and arrived quickly. As always the tea is exceptional quality, I haven't tried the Pu Erh or Lapsang Souchong yet, but the Breakfast Tea and Belfast Brew are established favourites and this is our first try of Russian Caravan and I love it.
