Powerful fragrance and balanced aroma. This special smoked tea has a distinctive flavour sometimes referred to as 'tarry' and is a special tea from Fujian province. The Fukienese word 'souchong' means 'sub variety', that is, a sub variety of other black teas from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian. When Lapsang Souchong was first exported to western European countries and became famous on the international markets it was no doubt due to the distinct aroma and flavour. Interestingly the best Lapsang is produced in the nature preserve located in the Wuyi Mountains, where the high mountains with thick pine forests and heavy mist provide the ideal environment for growing top quality tea.

Really nice

I`m just having my first cup, of Lapsang Souchong Butterfly, so I can write this review. Really enjoying it, it has a lovely smokey flavour, I`ve made it quite strong, to get a full flavour, tho will also make it weaker at times, for a more delicate taste. Pretty good

Lovely Lapsang

I use Lapsang Souchong as part of a mixed tea and this one is delicious - I have been using it for many years

John Samders

Nice tra, but short of the full smoky flavour.

Steve Martin
Great tea.

A really nice Smokey lapsang, just as it should be. I sometimes mix it with Earl grey excelsior to make a nice smokey earl grey.
