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.

Smokey, yet satisfying

I got this tea on a whim and panicked when I received it. I was highly skeptical when I smelled it. It really does smell like a campfire. Once I was finally brave enough to take the plunge, I discovered this tea is actually wonderful! You do get a hint of smoke but more like that whiff that clings to your hair after sitting by the fire. It is an incredibly smooth tasting tea and I actually really enjoyed it.

Lapsang Souchong

This is an remarkable tea: silky, light body with a hint of smokiness. I haven't had a cup of Lapsang Souchong for many years, but it has long been a favorite. I am so very thankful that I've found a great source for it. The Whistling Kettle's supply is of exceptional quality. If you're unfamiliar with this tea and are looking for something distinctiveā€”give it a try!

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".

Very smoky!

I am trying some different black teas. I had never had a smoky tea before. It was a bit too smoky for me, but I can see how people who enjoy smoky drinks, like Laphroaig, would really love this. Glad I gave it a try!
