Lapsang Souchong Butterfly #1
A superior leaf Lapsang Souchong offering a unique smoky crisp character.
This special smoked tea has a robust flavour sometimes referred to as tarry and is a speciality from Fujian province.
Then they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung on wooden racks over smoking pine fires to dry and absorb the smoke flavour. When finished they are thick, glossy black strips, and produce a dark red drink with a unique aroma and taste. It is generally consumed with sugar or milk.
All the best Lapsang is produced in the nature preserve located in the Wuyi Mountains where the high mountains with thick pine forests and heavy mist provide the ideal environment for growing top quality tea. Depending upon one’s palate the taste can be light and intriguing or it can be heavy and overpowering.
This spectacular example is a real treat for any connoisseur.

Excellent quality and flavour; fast delivery; and good customer service. I am now a repeat customer.
The lapsang tea is my go to everyday tea. Recently I lost all hope of finding one that would taste woody enough as my taste buds had changed.
The tea came promptly and after my first cup I could taste every note and bouquet. This is now my absolute favourite new tea and a non negotiable must in my tea caddy. Exceptional service, outstanding tea.
Yet again I have returned to Teacakes of Yorkshire for my delivery of Lapsang Souchong. I can’t be without it first thing in the morning and I always take enough away with me to last a holiday. Delivery is prompt and the quality always good.
Twinings made an indifferent lapsang which I endured it but continued to search for better. Found various brands which boasted a good lapsang but they too were disappointing but finally! finally! I have found a perfect blend! Thank you TeaCakes!!
Thankyou so much. Exceptional.
An excellent tea, much better than tea bags. The smoky flavour is delicious. The speed of delivery is superb - I don't need to order until I'm right at the bottom of the caddy!
