is one of the rare quality authentic smoked Lapsang Souchong teas on the Western tea market. This is also the reason why actually few people in the west understand, why Lapsang Souchong is one of China’s most popular teas – at least in the west. Those, who don’t know this black tea specialty yielded from Wuyishan’s Bohea tea plant variety yet, here is your chance to close the gap at 20% OFF!
Place of origin of the Lapsang Souchong processing tradition within Wuyishan is the village of Tong Mu (chin. 桐木关 „Tong Mu Guan“). Accordingly, Tong Mu also provides the venue for the various legends ranking around the invention of smoke-drying Bohea black tea. Here, the Chen family – one of our local producer partners – has been tending a tea garden with native Bohea tea bushes for many years. These provide the leaves for the Lapsang and Jin Jun Mei black teas that until today are picked and processed according to traditional artisan processes all by hand by Cindy Chen, the family’s youngest daughter.
However, Lapsang Souchong doesn’t owe its high degree of popularity to Chinese, but rather to Western tea lovers. This is why in China, it had long been customary to use minor quality tea leaves for this tea’s production. Accordingly, taste deficits used to be camouflaged by particularly high levels of smoking that rather superseded than complemented the tea’s actual taste. Only when the region received World Heritage status from UNESCO, the standards of smoked Lapsang teas rose along with the general quality of teas cultivated within the resulting nature protection zone. And so did the interest of Chinese tea drinkers in this tea specialty that so far had been deemed a “poor-man’s tea” in China.
What makes our Classic Lapsang Souchong stand out from the mass of cheap – and mostly unauthentic smoked Lapsang teas is for once a very proper picking standard. Then, the taste of the black Bohea tea is not suppressed by the smoking of the tea leaves. Much rather, the two components combine to a harmonious, finely balanced taste pattern in the resulting total piece of art, with the black tea and the smoking note melting to a natural-appearing entity.

Tea of the Week
Every week, this promotion puts a very special tea in the center of focus. During that week, I will offer you this tea quasi at net cost price, i. e. even BELOW the normal promotion price. Goal of the format is to put individual teas in the center of focus that truly deserve to be there. This means, the special features of the current tea of the week will be summarized in short here on top of the special offers page, accompanied by an illustration that is to complement up the informative impression with a visual one.
The promotion format gives me the opportunity to bring teas that have already established as favorites among our regurlars closer to newcomers to Siam Tea Shop, too. At the same time, it gives regulars the chance of stocking up one of their favorite teas at a particularly low price. And, at the end of the song, of course, there’s hope on my side that the one or other tea that is not in a non-profit mode will also find its way into your shopping cart along with the tea of the week, so I might still be blessed with some gains…
Particularly good chances to be selected as a tea of the week in Siam Tea Shop have, of course, all of my favorite teas !!! You will find the current tea of the week on top of this page, or also just among the above this week’s special offers.
