Lapsang Souchong

Classic flavours of campfire smokiness and freshly cut spruce.

Special Offer: Save 25% - 50g was £6, now £4.50

The smokiness of the ancient and world-renowned Lapsang souchong is present here in this classic Lapsang direct from Mr Liang Qizheng's Farm, near Jianou, Fujian. The aroma evokes charred spruces, wood ash, smouldering campfires and cedar. The leaves of this tea are dried slowly over pine wood fires, smokiness slowly suffusing the leaves. The tea is dark, rich, fruity and of course - smoky.

A great value lapsang and tastes amazing. I've been into Lapsang for 11-12 years and this is one of the best I've tasted. Canton customer, Andrew

TRANQUILITY

/ 5

The true flavours of Chinese tea and Lapsang Souchong (my Great Aunt introduced it to me) to accompany breakfast is the perfect partner. Instils calmness to face the day ahead with inner peace and tranquillity.

Very good

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.

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.

Night time cuppa that don't keep you awake

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.

best Lapsang around

5

/ 5

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.

MY FAVOURITE LAPSANG SOUCHONG!

Very nice everyday Lapsang

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.
