There are two types of Lapsang Souchong: China and Taiwan once known as Formosa. One is distinctly stronger. Ours is a blend of the two

The Chinese half is sourced from the beautiful Wuyi Mountain region of China`s Fujian Province.

This fine black tea has a strong characteristically smoky aroma and taste. This comes from a unique process where the leaves are smoked over smoldering pinewood fires to develop complex woody notes, complementing their natural flavours and resulting in a delicious, well-balanced and robust tea. Lapsang Souchong can be served on its own, with Lemon, or occasionally milk and sugar.

Unlike our coffees, our teas are all sold pre-packed. We source them ourselves, cut and blend them if necessary on the premises before packing them is small runs.

Teas mixed on the premises include Organic Breakfast Tea and herbal blends like Sleepeasy.

Before being exported teas are usually processed at origin. Black teas are fermented while drying and Green Teas are dried faster and not allowed to ferment.

Of the fermented black teas the strongest are teas that go through the (self-explanatory) crush tear and curl process known as CTC. But even just having small sized pieces (ie fannings) can make tea stronger as the surface area is increased.
