Very goodReview by Blackheaddog
This tea is a wonderful example of a lapsang, with subtle pineness which is not overpowering, and a balanced level of smokiness - a perfect breakfast partner.(Posted on 8/17/15)
My mother approvesReview by Deb
I've not tried it myself but bought this for my mother who has been buying fortnum and masons Lapsong Souchong since before I was born. She's now a fan ans says she'll be buying from canton in the future.(Posted on 6/15/13)
Night time cuppa that don't keep you awakeReview by David T
In the evenings I often fancy a double espresso, but pay for it with a restless night. This Lapsang Souchong does the job for me; it is intense and smokey, but seems to relax me rather than perk me up. My kids call it "Smokey Bacon" tea and it has way less pork fat! That said, somehow it doesn't work for me at breakfast. I reckon it is a bloke's tea; a full on, but sophisticated tea.(Posted on 4/26/13)
best Lapsang aroundReview by Adriana
This must be one of the most delicate yet intense Lapsang Souchongs around. It doesn't have the usual stinky socks aroma that can be an acquired taste, this could be appreciated even by those who normally don't like Lapsang. Much enjoyed and will be coming back for more.(Posted on 2/25/13)

MY FAVOURITE LAPSANG SOUCHONG!(Posted on 8/22/11)
Very nice everyday LapsangReview by Tom Day
I've tried loads of lapsangs recently and this ranks as the best value for money. It's not overly smoky which I really liked but maybe not for you if all you want is smoke. You can tell this tea was made with a really good base tea and not the cheap China black most lapsangs are made from.(Posted on 8/22/11)
