A Lapsang Souchong smoked using the resinous bark of the pine trees, as well as the fragrant wood.  Deep, dark, and strong this is not for the fainthearted.

Picked, rolled, fired and then smoked, this loose leaf tea epitomises hand-made orthodox crafting. In an age of artificial chemicals and flavourings, these are real wood-smoked leaves.  Unlike the subtlety of our Lapsang Souchong, this loose leaf tea is more of a Laphroaig than a Springbank.

Superb - Tarry Lapsang Souchong

I love Lapsang Souchong and have tried many. This Tarry Lapsang Souchong is by far the best I have tasted: it combines delightful smoke, with a strong warming flavour but there is also a delicateness in the perfume. Bliss! I highly recommend Rare Tea Co: the teas are excellent, the customer service is very good and I love what Henrietta is doing with small producers. Don’t ever drink dust in bags ever again!! This is worth it.

Tasting Notes

A rich, peaty black tea. The aroma is much like sitting by an open fire; smoky, warming and comforting.

Many of our customers enjoy this tea brewed strong and add a silky drop of milk. It also makes a fine hot toddy with whiskey and honey.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 80°C (176°F) water.

To enjoy this tea very strong and balanced with rich, full-fat milk, use water at a higher temperature (90 - 95°C / 194 - 203°F).


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

25p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
