Lapsang Souchong Pyramids

VERY DISAPPOINTEDReview by Andrew
I was fed up with buying weak lapsing souchong from supermarkets and sought out specialist suppliers. I elected to order 200 tea bags. I have found, despite allowing the bags 3 minutes in the hot water, the end result is even weaker and more insipid than the supermarket bags. I regret buying any from Canton for the inflated prices they charge; at least I should have only bought 50. I now have to use 2 bags per cup. I would advise others to look at other suppliers first.(Posted on 12/1/16)
If your employer gets funny about you starting a campfire at your desk, this is the next best thingReview by Ross
I have previously been a devotee of the loose leaf lapsang from another premium importer. They refused to release it in bags: more fool them. I switched to Canton's version so I could take them travelling with me easily. I'm pleased to say that the Canton version is at least as good, and the bag is wonderful. The tea itself is top-grade lapsang. When you drink it, you feel as if you are being sucked into a conifer forest at dusk in early October. If your employer gets funny about you starting a campfire at your desk, this is the next best thing. And an empty shoe polish tin makes a wonderful suitcase stashaway for travel.(Posted on 4/4/16)
Classic and convenientReview by Nathan
The sheer convenience of the tea pyramids is great. And heck, lapsang is a classic that every tea lover should try. Highly recommended.(Posted on 3/26/13)
Light, smokey and deliciousReview by Amanda
I am a lover of Lapsang Souchong and will happily drink the strong, pungent brew when I need to be woken up or just need a distinctive, full bodied cup of tea however this is NOT that tea. This tea has a beautifully light touch with all the character of a strong brew but doesn't overpower everything else. The teabags make the perfect mug, which is exactly what I need when I don't have the time to savour the whole brewing experience but still want a lovely cuppa.(Posted on 9/26/12)
So gentleReview by deborah
I was so scared to try this tea because I have memories of strong, pungent and thick tasting Lapsang Souchong, but it is absolutely delicious. Gentle and incredibly comforting. I love it!(Posted on 8/22/12)
