Description

Lapsang Souchong Falcon: from the Wuyi mountains of Fujian Province.

Lapsang Souchong Falcon has a wonderfully smoky flavour which is rather more pronounced than Osprey. It is smoked in bamboo baskets over a pinewood fire to give a rather tarry and deeply aromatic flavour that has become increasingly popular. The leaves are typically large and coarse. Drink without milk and not too strong. Appearance of the liquor should be a burnished gold. For those so inclined, Lapsang Souchong goes particularly well with whisky and cigars! Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for three minutes.

Lapsang Souchong Falcon “This is a very superior tea. Supermarket Lapsang has an initial whiff of tar and smoke but it rapidly fades away into a slightly bitter and characterless tea. This Lapsang on the other hand is deeply resinous and pungent from the start. It has a rich and long finish and an exquisite amber liquor.”
Our favourite breakfast tea “We drink this for breakfast every day. No milk, lovely smoky flavour, pale gold in colour. Perfect.”

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Lapsang Souchong Falcon has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list.

    Delicious! In our (heathen!) household, we mix half Lapsang Souchong with half Earl Grey which 4 out of 5 members of the household love – so much so, it has to be rationed.

    A perfect Lapsang; full of flavour, delightfully smokey and with a good second infusion. Lots of subtle flavours and a lingering mouth. It takes milk very well.
