Description

Lapsang Souchong is a boldly smoky, polarizing tea that has devoted legions of fans and plenty of people who simply do not care for it. If you love cigars, smoked meats, scotch or dark roast coffee, then read on: this tea is sure to count you as a fan. Lapsang Souchong is the boldest, smokiest tea we offer. These compact, mature, pine-smoked leaves from Fujian pack an astoundingly full aroma that can be smelled without even opening its packaging. Scents of charred spruce, pine, ash and cedar merge with aromas of burning campfires, charcoal embers, ashes and a sweet, woodsy undertone of pinesap. The color is golden and surprisingly light for such a full flavor and bouquet. Its aroma is true to the leaf, with an added complexity of delicate mineral tones. It has the smoky, ashen, full flavor of a smoldering campfire and a vaporous, smoky aftertaste. Wonderful as a base for a Russian tea blend, or added to a breakfast blend for a little complexity. Pair with roast meats or spicy Thai dishes. Lapsang Souchong is lower in caffeine than other black teas, so it can be enjoyed day or evening.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5 you can select our new Black Triangle Signature Canister.

Nice full flavor. Has a smoked flavor reminds me smoked sausage. Not the traditional tea and may require a aquired taste. I enjoyed it. Best as an after diner or by the fire tea.

I love Lapsang Souchong tea for its complex flavor - the smokey, warm flavor with a sweet finish. I've been trying different brands to find the one I like best, and I had really high hopes of this one- but I was very disappointed. The smell is old, and the flavor is stale, bland, and feels raspy.

The description says it all. You will love it or hate it. (My wife hates it) The intense smoky smell will knock you over when you open the bag, but the taste is much more mellow than the smell. I usually drink it straight but sometimes half it with the breakfast tea for a bit more caffeine.
