Lapsang Souchong Imperial

The best China Lapsang Souchong we have found. To our knowledge we are the only importer of this grade of China Lapsang Souchong. Superior in flavor. Very smoky, yet quite mellow.

An Acquired Taste
SFSteve – CA – November 22, 2018

Like the idea of drinking tea around a campfire? Bingo! I'd call it an acquired taste, although as the reviews here attest it has its enthusiastic fans. Whether the evident smokiness appeals will be purely subjective. While the tea itself seems of fine quality, to my taste buds it barely peeks out from behind the veil of smoke. Sample first.

Great tea

One of the best Souchongs I have tried so far. Very rich, smoky flavor with a tiny bit of sweetness.

Smokey in scent, not taste.

Unlike other reviewers, I felt this one not so smokey but very pleasant indeed. this was my first Suchong so I don't know exactly what to expect. However, I had some experiences in smokey teas for their taste and I was not a big fan of them, this tea was very pleasing. The taste is very clean and mellow with a nice touch of the smoked food.

Delicious balanced maduro

This has outstanding depth of flavour as well a big fat smokey punch. Very special, you can taste the quality. Some of the less premium teas are all smoke and no tea, whereas this has them nicely aligned. I am a big fan of smokey tastes and love this stuff, but some friends have shied away, unimpressed.

Ne plus ultra

Definitely for those who crave strong flavors, and perhaps not suitable for all ladies. Like discovering a true Czech pilsner after years of drinking "Lite" beer - you can never go back. I too have tried numerous Lapsang variants and this is the most robust and distinctive of them all. A morning imperative!

The best Lapsang I have ever had!

When they say smoky, they mean it. The description is quite accurate. I try every Lapsang I can get my hands on, and none are better than this!

excites the smell and taste buds

I love this Tea. This Tea has its own special cup in my home. This is my go to Tea when I want to take a journey with a beloved book or sit by the fire and go down memory lane. Not bitter, nice smell and taste.
