Organic Lapsang Souchong
Souchong leaves, noted for their thick, rough appearance are withered over burning pine bows, placed in barrels covered with cloth and allowed to ferment. A process which has gone virtually unchanged for hundreds of years.
"A smoky sensation fills your mouth in a way no other tea possibly could."
We are pleased to offer you this superb tea, especially so considering its organic status. Unlike many inferior Lapsangs that may be grown with chemicals, this tea is 100% natural, wonderfully smooth and has an intoxicating aroma of resinous burning wood.

This is my favourite tea so I've tried many. This from Teacakes is by far the best; dark, smooth and smokey with no bitter aftertaste.
I like to drink it mixed with green tea and no milk. Very much an evening favourite for me.
Terrific quality tea, clever and quick delivery and super customer service.
More mellow than most Lapsangs but well-rounded flavour: delicious. Tea arrived with no delays.
I don’t drink this tea myself but many in my family do and it has gone down really well with all. The best they’ve had. Smells amazing too. And prompt service. My order was attended to immediately and sent out quickly.
