Lapsang Souchong Pyramid Tea Bags (Plastic Free)
Our Lapsang Souchong Black Tea is produced in China.
To produce this Lapsang, the youngest buds have not been taken, but the larger, riper leaves from the lower part of the tea bushes.
The tea leaves were then fermented and placed on hot iron pans and roasted before being smoked over woods rich in resin.
This has resulted in a Lapsang which presents a large, black leaf with sharp notes of smoke.
The taste profile is smoky and spicy.

Discover Lapsang Souchong Tea
Lapsang Souchong is a smoked black tea which originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China.
It is believed that Lapsang was the first black tea produced in China.
It was first produced in Tongmu Village using the Camellia Sinensis Bohea tea bush variety at the beginning of the 19th Century.
Lapsang is distinct from other tea types due to its unique flavour of smoky pine which is comparable to fine cigars and a single malt whiskey.
