4 Reviews Write a Review
In this elegant blend of China Congou and Lapsang Souchong black teas, bold, ebony-brown leaves produce a dark whiskey-colored liquor with a pronounced peat smoke aroma. The velvety smooth cup is layered with notes of mellow smoke and Burgundy, accented by a whisper of toffee sweetness. The deep rich flavor lingers long into the finish.

  • When it comes to black tea I usually stick with pu-erh (Pu'er). I do enjoy the smokiness of Lapsang Souchong but sometimes it can be a bit of a hit to your morning sensibilities. This lovely blend, though, smooths over the smokiness with a slight sweetness that makes it very enjoyable any time of day.

  • If you like Lapsang Souchong and English blends, you'll love this tea. Smoky and complex. A hardy cup.
  • A great introduction to Lapsang Souchong

  • I've never tried Lapsang Souchong before and figured a blend that softened it would be a good introduction. Turns out, I was right. Once I finish off my sample packs, this will occupy a permanent place in my tea cabinet as an afternoon or evening tea (for those late weekend nights).
  • Really impressive blend

  • Sometimes in cooking or other gustatory pursuits, the art of blending elevates humble parts to a new level of being. I’ve had plenty of Lapsang Souchong and always shied away from that hit you on the head with a mallet smoky potency. This blend reinvents the Lapsong Souchong experience, adding charm, whimsy and ease. Works for breakfast.
