Origins

China, Fujian Wuyi

Lapsang Souchong originated in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian, China. It translates to Middle Mountain Small Leaf Variety, and is known for its distinctive smoky flavor. The smoking process is rumoured to have been created by accident but has become a defining character. The region is surrounded by dense pine forests with heavy mists, perfect for quality tea production. The forests debris forms a beautiful fertilizer for the tea and the pine is used to smoke the leaves. Much like champagne, only tea produced in this region can be called Lapsang Souchong.

Different and warm

A really different tea with a warm smoky flavour. Love it but won't drink it all the time. It seems to suit a certain mood like a gloomy rainy day.

Disappointing

I bought 2 bags of Lapsang Souchong for my wife as a gift. I loved purchasing from a local Melbourne Company. The box arrived very promptly and the packaging was perfect and nicely put together. Unfortunately the actual tea itself was unsatisfying for her. She has been a long-time Lapsang Souchong Drinker and has tried all the different brands that have been available locally. Her favourites have been Taylors and Twinings (no longer available). She has tried the T2 L.S., and this has also been less than satisfactory. She describes the Tea Drop variety as a nice smoky aroma before brewing, but no smoky aroma after brewing or smoky enough on the palate. I hope this feedback can be taken in the best spirits, and help guide future acquisitions of this hard to get tea. We would love to hear from Tea Drop if a different variety of Lapsang becomes available.

Holy shit

I've had lapsang saochong before but this one takes smokiness to a whole new level. I need to get in the mood to have this, but still, one of my favourites

Smoky start to the day

Best Lapsang souchong tea available. Great smoky flavour and slightly fermented nose. The tea drinkers version of espresso. Perfect for a pick me up in the morning, or late at night with whiskey
