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

Love this tea really good quality, I have since ordered the 1000gs arrived today so will last me a good while . I would highly recommend.
Once again great quality of tea, and quick delivery from Tea Cakes.
I will continue to use their terrific service.
Several times repeat buyer. Good quick service & a great product. Thank you.
My regular supermarket used to sell loos Lapsang Souchong, but now only offers it in teabags, which are made by a well-known brand, but are generally filled with what can only be described as tea dust. It's wonderful to be able to buy loose tea again - especially when it is of such good quality. The taste is SO much better!
Excellent product and service. Thoroughly recommend.
