Lapsang Souchong Pyramids

Savour this delicious and traditional pine-smoked tea in a tea pyramid.
This is a traditional, easy-drinking afternoon tea with a fragrance that evokes damp spruce, autumn, smouldering campfires and cedar. With our pyramid bags, you can enjoy these delicious aromas at work or when you're on the move. The biodegradable mesh pyramids are big enough to allow the leaves to expand and release their full flavour.

This tea is also available in loose leaf.

First created when tea farmers in Wuyi hid from marauding soldiers and left their picked tea leaves out in the rain. They later dried the leaves in the smoke of pine wood fires - and a new tea came to Europe.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

/ 5

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.

If your employer gets funny about you starting a campfire at your desk, this is the next best thing

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.

Classic and convenient

The sheer convenience of the tea pyramids is great. And heck, lapsang is a classic that every tea lover should try. Highly recommended.

Light, smokey and delicious

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.

So gentle

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!
