Product Description

Tea: Lapsang Souchong

The word ‘Souchong’ is a term used to describe large leaves that have been rolled lengthwise and are therefore somewhat coarser in texture.

Compared with the Formosa Lapsang Souchong, this tea is lighter in character.

This Lapsang Souchong tea has been withered over cypress wood fires giving it its distinctive smoky character.

We recommend brewing this tea for 3 minutes at 100C and serving black.

You can re-infuse the leaves again several times for 1 minute until it loses its flavour.


As with coffee, we source our tea through established relationships with individual farms, cooperatives and trusted partners. Although our business started with coffee, we introduced tea in the 1980s and spent a lot of time developing our selection and creating our very own blends.

Sustainability is an equally important factor in the tea growing process, both to our business and the wider tea industry. The most important part of the entire tea process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with tea estates which care for the local environment, work hard to combat climate change and support the workers and their families.
