Our Lapsang Souchon has been made traditionally by withering the tea leaves over pine wood fires, which imparts a smoky flavour to the tea. The tea is then oxidized, rolled, and dried to create its unique taste and aroma.

Lapsang Souchon is considered one of the oldest black tea, originating from the Wuyi Mountains in China’s Fujian province. Legend has it that during the Qing dynasty, a group of soldiers passed through a tea factory and in their haste, accidentally knocked over some tea leaves, which landed on a fire and became smoky. The tea was then tasted and deemed to be delicious, giving birth to the unique smoky flavor of Lapsang Souchong.

Lapsang Souchon is a popular tea among tea enthusiasts who enjoy its robust and bold flavour, and is often paired with savoury foods or enjoyed as a warming beverage on chilly days.
