Product Detail

Traditionally handmade Lapsang Souchong has been delivered to August Moon Tea all the way from Fujian Province. Originally from Tongmuguan (桐木关), Wuyi Mountain, Lapsang Souchong has been loved by people from all over the world for almost 450 years. We went to the small village, luckily learned the techniques of the production of Lapsang Souchong, and sourced this tea. Normally people are not allowed to visit the places where Lapsang Souchong is smoked with pine wood. But we had this privilege to see it.

The tea leaves are from the local tea yards which are about 1100 metres above the sea level. The tea is handmade by the farmers. With the special smokiness from having been smoked with pine wood, the tea tastes very subtly sweet. The smokiness will be gone within a few infusions. The colour is beautiful even it’s new tea produced in 2016. We are sure that after a certain storage period, the tea will settle down fully with an even better taste. We highly recommend you to use filtered water to make the tea.


Preparation instruction may vary according to your preference.

1 warm up the pots and cups

2 wash the tea leaves with boiled water

3 make the tea with boiled water. Once the water is in the pot, pour it out.

4 Repeat process 3, but add a couple of seconds for each infusion until the flavour is gone.
