Lapsang Souchong be a black tea from thar Fujian province 'o China, famous fer tis' smoky aroma 'n flavor. To create this, yonder finished tea be given some extra dryin' over a smokin' pine fire, impartin' a sweet, clean smoky flavor to ye tea. Lapsang Souchong sometimes gets a bad rep fer bein' brashly smoky, but really fine examples aren't like that at all. Our Lapsang Souchong be very approachable: clean 'n slightly cool smokiness in te' aroma, like menthol. Sweet, refreshin' smoky flavor, crisp 'n edgy. Golden-coppery color in thar cup; yonder mark 'o a Lapsang that hasn't been smoked to a jerky. Sweet pine flavor, lightly evaporatin' finish. Tis' amazin' all ye dimensions 'o 'smoky' ye can experience in one, very well made cup 'o fine Lapsang Souchong.

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Teabags

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin

Famously soft-spoken American painter Bob Ross be famous fer his quote, "We don't make mistakes, just happy wee accidents." 'N throughout thar history 'o yonder world, this has proven to be ye case. Penicillin, te' world's first antibiotic, be one example. Post-its be another. But did ye know that Lapsang Souchong, perhaps thar world's oldest black tea, was also created by mistake? Whilst there be several competin' theories as to tis' creation, most involvin' soldiers, bandits, 'n a major production backup, one thin' we're sure of, we're glad it happened.
