100g will make around 40 cups of tea

Scented with pinewood smoke which impregnates the leaves, imparting a sweet, clean smoky flavour delivering a golden coppery colour in the cup. The dimensions of smokey experienced in one cup are like no other. Like Scotch whiskey, you love it or leave it on its own unmistakable terms.  

Can be drunk on its own or by adding a pinch to another tea.  

Strangely enough, Lapsang Souchong seems to be practically unknown in China since it has always been made principally for export.

Lapsang Souchong

We’ve always enjoyed this rich, fine tea. Because it is so very rich, we’re accustomed to make our own blends with it. The result is most perfect!

Hi A, thanks for the great review! It is certainly full of flavour. So great to hear you enjoy creating your very own blends with it :)

I've been ordering this blend for over 6 years now and I love it. If i'm not having coffee, it's always a pot of lapsang for me.

A delightful tasting smoky tea similar to the "billy tea" we used to drink as children.

We have also been trying in vain to find Lapsang since Twinings has disappeared from the shelves.
We just use a pinch as well - goes good with Tiger tea.
It is also good to add to the cooking water when 'one' is cooking a corned beef. Just a couple of pinches and the beef takes on a hint that glorious smoky flavor.

I've been drinking Lapsang Souchong for 40 years and if i don't get my mug in the morning you won't want to meet me that day.
This blend is the best i've had, highly recommended and unlike the previous comment i think it far outshines Twinings.
Thanks for keeping this addict happy
