Lapsang Souchong
Black tea, China

Flavour: malty, fruity & sweet 
These leaves were harvested on 10 April 2023 in Huang Keng village, Wuyishan, Fujian province, China.  

This Lapsang Souchong is a rich and intriguing black tea that works beautifully with many different foods, such as hard cheese, meat and fruit and chocolate desserts. The fragrance is sweet and malty. The infusion is medium-bodied with notes of malt, orange and brown sugar.  

This tea comes from Wuyi Origin tea company, led by Cindy Chen and her husband, Zhou Shiwu, who value quality tea craftsmanship and love sharing the experience of the special teas the region produces.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 100°. Three infusions. 

Sizes: Lapsang Souchong comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you three cups if you steep the leaves three times.
