Lapsang Souchong Tea comes from the Fujian province of China. After the rolling process, the teas are placed into wooden barrels until they begin to emit their own pleasant aroma. As a final step they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung over smoky pine fires where they dry and absorb the smoky essence. This meticulous process makes this tea flavor significantly distinctive from all other teas.
This unique tea encompasses an exotic, smoky flavor; it has often been referred to as a smoked tea. Lapsang-Souchong has grown in popularity with those who appreciate single malt Scotch whiskey and fine cigars. The preparation of the leaves involves withering over cypress or pine wood fires. Once steeped, this gourmet tea produces a bright, burgundy-orange cup of tea with an assertive and bold flavor.

This tea is really, really good.
Thank you guys for carrying such a great tea. Rich and smoky flavor.... Lapsang Souchong tea is definitely one of my husband’s favorite, as well as mine. It’s been hard to find it until I tried your company’s brand. Thank you so much for having a great quality tea. We will continue ordering from you.
We have also order the “birthday cake” flavored coffee! I look forward to experiencing that as well.
As a avid tea drinker this was my first time trying this one. The smokiness is the first bouquet that tickles the senses, then as the amber sweetness encompasses your taste buds it's rich complex smoldering ember flavors of a very smooth black tea in it's purest form. I shared this with a co-worker who is also an avid tea drinker and he said that it was the most unique tea he has tried and really enjoyed it.
Awesome tea at cheap prices! There's not much more you could ask for.
Excellent dark tea to start the day!
