In the heart of China's Fujian province, nestled amidst the Wuyi Mountains, lies a tea as bold as it is distinctive—Lapsang Souchong. This remarkable black tea stands out for its unparalleled smokiness, a flavor profile that sets it apart from the subtler nuances of its counterparts.

Lapsang Souchong black tea, celebrated for its smoky character, undergoes plucking, withering, rolling, oxidation, and the distinctive final step—smoking the tea leaves over pine wood fires.

To brew Lapsang Souchong black tea, use water heated to about 185-205°F (85-96°C) and steep for 3-4 minutes, adjusting the steeping time for your desired strength.

    Nearly addictive

    Lapsang souchong is a somewhat divisive tea. Intensely smoky and bold- it's often accurately referred to as "whiskey tea". If you enjoy the smell or flavor of whiskey, you'll very likely enjoy this. I have had it from many sources and Magic Hours version is, by far, the best. This tea tastes so fresh and the flavor lights up my brain. It's genuinely just like...where has this been all my life? I'm so obsessed with the flavor that I often mix it with other teas- MH's Japanese Earl Grey is a great one to use for this. I definitely recommend it for fans of the variety, and for anyone looking to try something new.

    Opened the bag and was overwhelmed with a strong "greasy, rubber tire" smell.

    What a turn off! I immediately threw it out. Huge disappointment.

    Very smoky

    This was good and has a very smoky flavor to it . If you don’t like a smoky flavor then this tea is not for you . This tea will make a very nice cocktail 🍹
