A smooth mouth feel and delightful bright quality are showcased in this fine Lapsang Souchong selection. Rich smoky notes balance with a light, lingering sweetness in the whiskey-colored liquor.

  • Disappointing!

  • Lacking in smokiness. It was uninspired.
  • Disappointingly Weak

  • This may be a good introduction for some, but once a taste for Souchongs is established, one will find this lacking in smokiness.
  • A Refined Lapsang Souchong

  • Rich – CO – February 22, 2020
  • This tea is complex, silky smooth, and refined, with a subtle sweetness. Its smoky notes are clearly present but not overpowering; you can tell that the base tea used is good quality. I especially love this tea in late afternoons on winter days!
  • Came for the price, stayed for the brew

  • This has a nice strong smoky aroma and taste and the tea is decent quality. It stands up to milk and sweetener, but is delicate enough to enjoy black, as well. I originally purchased it just to try the least expensive lapsang available on Upton right now, but I am quite satisfied with the taste and quality and will purchase again.
  • Rich, broad & full mouthed smokiness while clean

  • Paul – VA – August 04, 2019
  • For a good mid problem solving pot of tea this is my favorite treat. I brew it strong and add it to whole milk or cream. The smokiness is sophisticated and finish lingers with complexity. Great for cold rainy days or just turn up the A/C and solve puzzles with it. My go to for taking care of myself. While full flavored it isn't a board of wood.
