Our Organic Lapsang Souchong tea is a black tea that is definitely one of a kind! Its woodsmoke taste is exquisite!
Our Organic Lapsang Souchong Tea is a smoked black tea that originated in Fujian Province in China. More precisely, this tea comes from the Wuyi Mountains. There are two very important tea types coming from this region: Lapsang Souchong Tea and Loose Oolong Tea. The teas from this region are often referred to as Bohea Teas.
Lapsang Souchong Tea is a bracing large-leafed tea that leaves no room for ambivalence! It tastes of woodsmoke and has a tarry pungency (probably owing to the particular soil of Fujian Province where it is grown). This sophisticated tea pours out as a clear bright colour and smells a little like smoked salmon or grilled bacon.
In addition to all great advantages of Organic Lapsang Souchong Tea, there is another undeniable asset of this tea: its health benefits! Firstly, as one can easily guess from its name, our Organic Lapsang Souchong Tea contains solely organic ingredients. Additionally, it is rich in polyphenols, that are known to be great antioxidants. Therefore, this tea type is good for cancer prevention.
Other health benefits of our Organic Lapsang Souchong Tea include aid for digestion. Besides, the flavonoids contained in this tea are great for your cardiovascular system. And finally, this tea is particularly rich in tannins, that will boost your immune system!
Therefore, should you wish to have some extravagance in your life, with benefits for your health as a bonus, go for our Organic Lapsang Souchong tea! This tea type is best enjoyed without milk.
Chinese Black Tea
China is the cradle of all teas. This country is particularly famous for its green tea, that is definitely the most popular drink in China. However, Chinese Black tea is also quite well known. With the exception that what we call ‘black tea’ in the entire world, the Chinese would call ‘red tea’. This is their name for fermented (oxidised) tea. The preparation technique for fermented tea differs from that of green tea.
Bedford tea will gladly offer you different types of Chinese Black Tea! The most famous ones include Lapsang Souchong Loose Leaf Tea and Pu Erh Tea. Those two tea types are world-famous for different reasons.
Pu Erh Tea is renowned for its health benefits, especially aid in weight loss. Lapsang Souchong Loose Leaf Tea, on the other hand, is known for its smoky aroma and slightly tart taste, reminding of woodsmoke.
In addition to those undeniable advantages of Organic Lapsang Souchong Tea, it is also very beneficial for your health. And we are glad to offer an organic version to another great Chinese Black Tea type: the Pu Erh Tea. Here is our Organic Pu Erh Tea, whose sophisticated taste and great health benefits make it an exceptional addition to our collection of Chinese Black Tea.
