You may know Lapsang Souchong to be a smoked tea, this isn't always the case and in our opinion, pure Lapsang Souchong, is far superior. The smoked version of this tea is popular mostly for the western market, in China however, the unsmoked version is revered for its broad but distinct profiles which come in two versions depending on how it is processed. Some Lapsangs go down the chocolate and dried fruits road, while others are floral with fresh fruit and cut wood. This tea is the latter.

Wild-crafted in the Wuyi mountains of Fujian, this award winning tea will remind you of wild dark berries or black current juice. It has a gorgeous malty wood undertone and a smooth liqour. A truly refined red tea which can be enjoyed night and day.
