  • Full Description

    Smoky Lapsang Souchong is dried over fires of resin-sweet pinewood, a technique discovered by accident back in the 16th century. After a travelling army decided to spend the night in the tea warehouses, there was only one thing to save the tea from the stench: smoking it over local pinewood. European traders soon developed a taste for the astonishingly aromatic loose leaf tea christened Lapsang Souchong – and the rest is history.

NUMEROLOGY

Our smoky Lapsang is a real bonfire brew, so we thought we’d give it the number 511 to remember, remember the 5th of November. Fabulous with fireworks and toffee apples.

CHINA

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
