A speciality of China's Fujian Province, smoky Lapsang Souchong is dried over fires of resin-sweet pinewood, a technique discovered by accident back in the 16th century. After a travelling army decided to spend the night in the tea warehouses, there was only one thing to save the tea from the stench: smoking it over local pinewood. European traders soon developed a taste for the astonishingly aromatic tea christened Lapsang Souchong – and the rest is history.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Lapsang Souchongon 04/09/2018I got myself the mini caddy in 2017.
After my brother assumed I would find smoky tea too strong. Because of my sensory issues. That year he designed Elderflower Ear Grey in its place.
Instead I found Lapsang Souchong very yummy. I just used half the mininal recommended amount, for a wee bit longer brew time.
I restocked it twice.
And am confused when I couldn't locate it on the site. Hoping it might be restocked some day, so I might restock & refill my mini caddyLapsang Souchongon 05/06/2017It's my first smoked tea and I'm so surprised by it's flavour. The Whittard staff gave me a sample because they told be "people loves it or hates it" so they didn't wanted me to waiste my money. I tried it and came the week after to buy a full size. It's a strong tea perfect for the afternoon.

Our smoky Lapsang is a real bonfire brew, so we thought we’d give it the number 511 to remember, remember the 5th of November. Fabulous with fireworks and toffee apples.

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
