Description:

Lapsang Souchong is a type of black tea which is renowned for its smoky flavour. Our Organic Lapsang Souchong is made by carefully selecting the best tea leaves with long, deep red leaves. This black tea has a moderate caffeine content and can be relished at any point of the day. It has a gratifying fragrance and goes well with piquant meals.

Lapsang Souchong originates from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of southeast China, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its formula, tracing back to the 18th century, involves a distinctive method where the leaves are parched on timber, twisted, and oxidised two times before being parched in bamboo containers over a spruce blaze. This procedure is answerable for the tea's smoky flavour, which goes well with dark chocolate, barbecued and smoked seafood.

Comparable to all black teas, Lapsang Souchong is affluent in polyphenols, which are identified for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing qualities. Regular and restrained consumption of this tea can have a favourable impact on certain liver ailments and undesirable cholesterol levels, thus decreasing the danger of cardiovascular maladies. Theobromine, another element of Lapsang Souchong, has a helpful role in renal circulation and facilitates the removal of toxins from the body. Black tea, including Lapsang Souchong, encompasses caffeine, which triggers the nervous system and brain, akin to coffee for a mental boost.

Here are some key benefits of Organic Lapsang Souchong:
