Lapsang Souchong Tea



Lapsang Souchong Tea, also known as Li Shan Xiao Zhong, is an organic black tea that  lightly smoked over pine. The result is a pronounced smoky aroma. The taste achieves a fine balance between smoky, spicy flavours and mineral, sweet notes with a tangy and clean aftertaste.

Invented in the Fujian province, in south-east China, the Lapsang Souchong tea recipe dates back to the 18th century. Phonetically translated from a Chinese word, Lapsang Souchong means “small leaves from the original mountain”. It was the first black tea in China, which until then only produced green tea.

A great selection of tea from around the world. Take your pick from flavoursome black teas, green tea, or something a little fruiter from a Tisane. All blends in store are blended in house by Tricha (aka, Mum).  Don’t forget your strainer, we sell those too. Loose leaf tea, Dorset tea and local brews from the area along with traditional teapots, collectable teapots, and a tea for one.

Tea sample packs available in store for £1 so you can try a selection to make sure you like the tea. You might find something you like!
