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.

See Brewing Guidelines for how to make Lapsang Souchong teas.
