Lapsang Souchong

Organic Black Tea

A deep, smoky aroma wafts from the cup, like the smell of a cozy campfire. Lapsang Souchong tea leaves are withered over pine or cypress to infuse a woody scent, and then dried over a smoking pine fire. This unique savory flavor profile is surprising at first, but quickly grows on you. Try it paired with a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs.

Switching from coffee made easier

This tea and its unique smell and flavor made my transition from coffee to tea smoother. Not saying its at all coffee strength or flavor, it has a hint of smoke that makes it so enjoyable. I ordered a pack of sample teas, and this one stands out beyond the others to me.

Unique, smoky tea

This is my favorite tea next to Whistling Kettle's Secret Village (and the now apparently discontinued Nine Bend Black Dragon). I pretty much start every week with this tea. Back when I worked in an office, my coworkers always knew when I brewed Lapsang and they called it "bacon tea".

Fantastic, unique tea!

First of all, you have to like smoke as a flavor. If you do, look no further. Awesome combination of full-bodied black tea and smokey flavor. Best with a not-as-sweet honey, like buckwheat. HIGHLY recommended.

Amazing smoky tea!!

The main thing you need to know about this tea is that their description ("an intense pine-smoke flavor") is not an understatement. When they say "intense," they mean it. So if you like smoky black teas, you'll love this. It has a delicious tobacco-like aroma that hits you right out of the bag and fills the room as it's brewing. It also handles milk really well (not sure about sugar since I never use any in my tea). I like flavors like this (think peaty Scotch whisky or mezcal), so this tea is absolutely wonderful. I'll be ordering a full-size bag soon!
