Product Description

Tea: Formosa Lapsang Souchong

This tea is slightly stronger than China Lapsang Souchong which is down to the way it is smoked.

A high-grade luxury black Taiwanese tea is smoked slowly underneath burning ropes. The leaves are only partially dried, so as they continue to dry, they absorb more of the smoky flavour.

This tea has smooth smoky, earthy and tobacco notes.

We recommend brewing this Formosa Lapsang Souchong tea for 3 and a half minutes at 95C.

Best served black or with a slice of lemon.


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.
