Organic Lapsang Souchong
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.
Delicious tea with just the right amount of smoke. Beautifully packaged.
Glad to have discovered them.
I discovered little red cup through a friend. I went over for tea and was overwhelmed by the prepared lapsang souchong they had sitting on the table for us. It was, by far, some of the best tea I have ever had. On top of it tasting so delicious it's also a small family owned business, run in Maine, that's organic and fair trade. I also received the kindest post card from them after my first purchase. it was so sweet and personable. You're missing out if you don't buy Little Red Cup tea.
The tea I bought is great and very nice people running company.
I’ve been drinking Lapsong Souchong tea for years. The tea is fresh , with just enough smokiness. Thank you.
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.
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!
