Lapsang Souchong



Clear selection

Lapsang Souchong – Smoky & Flavourful.

Our Lapsang Souchong tea has a distinctive wood-smoke taste and aroma. This distinct smokey taste is created by carefully withering the leaves over smoking fragrant Chinese woods, then drying the tea in bamboo baskets over burning pine. Lapsang Souchong is definitely the Marmite of the tea world… but love it or hate it you won’t find anything else quite like it.

For happy campers or pyromaniacs, the wood-smoke aroma will evoke fond memories of sitting round a camp-fire… altogether now, “Ging Gang Gooly.”

Plastic-free tea

We provide the highest quality ethically sourced teas from all over the world.  What could possibly be better than that you may ask…  Well, our teas are 100% plastic free.  From the bio-film we use to hold them, we also use biodegradable and compostable labels on our refills and sachets, so we have you covered to enjoy our tea responsibly.  Because really, to enjoy natures wonders, we all need to take care of it.

By switching to loose leaf tea you’re not only saving the planet from more packaging but you’re getting a great cup of tea.  If you’re new to loose leaf tea, fear not.  We have 100% plastic-free self-fill teabags with drawstrings for you to create your brew.

We think the best way to enjoy it is with an Infuser Mug or an Infuser Teapot like our colourful Eteaket teapots, (or the amazing cast iron Japanese Style teapots).  Other handy tools include the Perfect Tea Measure Spoon and a Tea Timer.





Best Drunk

Morning or Noon

Our suggested caffeine levels contained in each tea are based on the results of an experiment which we conducted with Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh in 2013.  The experiment measured the mg levels of caffeine in a 300ml cup of brewed tea.  The more teacups illustrated, the stronger the caffeine level!

To Enjoy: Use 1 tsp per cup, add freshly boiled water and brew for 3-4 mins. Serve immediately or remove leaves. Perfect with or without milk (or, like Sir Winston Churchill, add a drop of Whisky).
