Description

Our Unsmoked Lapsang Souchong tea is a traditional Fujian-grown black tea. It is produced in the famous Wu Yi Mountain region of the coastal Province, known for its high altitude tea plantations that are frequently covered in a heavy mist which provides an ideal environment for growing the best tea.

The name Lapsang Souchong translates from Chinese (正山小種, “Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong”) to the “Small Leaf Variety from the Original Mountain”. Lapsang Souchong is a distinct smoked black tea and is a common favorite- we pride ourselves on carrying different varieties. Unsmoked Lapsang Souchong is rare as it does not have the characteristic smokiness of the pine-smoked aroma of Traditional Lapsang Souchong tea.

It produces a fragrant brew that is bright and clear, with malt and honey notes with a subtle natural sweetness. Try it and taste the pure unsmoked character of this fine Unsmoked Lapsang Souchong black tea, compare with Traditional Lapsang Souchong to broaden your tea experience.

I had never had a lapsang souchong until this one. I opened the package and was immediately blasted with the smokey aroma, which was a bit disconcerting. I steeped a pot large enough for two, but it ended up being for one, since my girlfriend had one sip and rejected it completely.

My taste buds didn't know what was going on at first, but after half a cup I was entranced. The aroma is like a now-dead fire of pine boughs. The flavour is like a campfire in my cup. It brings back memories even though I have never had it before.

Easily the most interesting tea I've ever had.

I'm ordering the other two lapsang souchongs from this site today, because I think I'm addicted.
