Organic Lapsang Souchong

Origin: Jiangxi Province

    Product Details

    Our organic Lapsang Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, 正山小种) is amazing. We know, that’s a bold statement, and some will disagree. But Lapsang Souchong is a love it or hate it proposition, and we’ve given our hearts to this tea. This is one of our strongest teas, think bridge abutments or skyscraper foundations. This is our most pungent tea - one that has been known to cause co-workers to enquire where the fire is. 

    The black tea is redolent of three distinct flavors at once — the black tea base, a hint of longyan (Dragon Eye, a Chinese tree fruit similar to lychee) and the pinewood smoke which is the tea’s most defining element.  

    Lapsang Souchong is available by 2.75 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

    Best tea EVER ‼️

    I’ve been drinking Lapsong Souchong tea for years. The tea is fresh , with just enough smokiness. Thank you.

    Gunpowder Green Tea and Lapsang Souchong

    The gunpowder green tea has a great flavor and a comforting feeling to the body and a relaxing smell. I it’s s great tea and it’s my favorite. The Lapsang Souchong I like to drink before and after a day snowboarding. It wakes me up on my way to the slopes with its intense flavor and smell, and the same after the snowboard day is over. It’s smell and flavor stimulating my senses and my body. I like it.

    Delightfully smoky

    I’ve tried Lapsang Souchong from several sources and this one is just right for me. Nicely smoky and good for at least three infusions.

    Service is prompt and personal and the price for a 500g bag is great.

    I don’t hesitate to send fellow tea lovers this way!

    A truly smokey Lapsang

    This was a smokier brew than I am used to. But variety is good and I enjoyed it.
