Lapsang Souchong (Smoked Black Tea)
A rich and robust tea with a powerful smoky flavour (think campfire!). The characteristic taste is derived from being roasted over a pine wood fire and can definitely be described as intense.
Souchong leaves, noted for their thick, rough appearance, are withered over burning pine boughs, placed in barrels covered with cloth and allowed to oxidize. Some inferior teas are flavoured with chemicals in order to enhance the smokiness - not this one! The flavour is 100% natural and due entirely to the drying process.

I am very proud to offer completely biodegradable and compostable zip pouches. They provide a high barrier protection against air, moisture and light (which all can decrease the quality and freshness of your tea) and will keep your tea fresh for approximately 2 years.
