This is a blend of black loose leaf teas to create a Lapsang Souchong that is both deep and smoky but silky and light.

It lies between the rich texture and heady aroma of our Tarry Lapsang and the elegant subtleties of our Rare Lapsang Souchong.

It can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Excellent tea.

I really enjoyed the Mild Lapsang Souchong. I had previously purchased Lapsang Souchong in tea bags. This Rare Tea Co. loose leaf tea tastes like real tea, it tastes much better than prepackaged. I can also infuse a couple of times, which I could not do with the prepackaged teas. So, Rare Tea Co. Mild Lapsang Souchong tastes much and is of better value than than any tea sold in tea bags. I highly recommend it.

Great tea

I loved this tea—not overpowering as some I tasted in the past. I will enjoy it in my morning mix of teas.

Tasting Notes

Deep notes of peat like a fine malt whisky with a rich smoky aroma. It can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Quantity

Use 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 185°F (85°C) water. If you prefer milk, use 212°F (100°C) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes at 85°C (sans milk), and 2 - 3 minutes at 100°C (with milk).

Taste regularly to find your optimum time.

Infusions

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

Cost Per Cup

55¢ per cup based on 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.

Serving Suggestions

We particularly enjoy this tea with ginger cake, biscuits, or in fact anything gingery.

You may want to experiment by adding a small pinch of our Himalayan Ginger to your pot.
