The Tea of Mystery - The entrancing, smoky character of this tea is achieved by an elaborate process. The hand-picked leaves are smoked over pinewood embers, for a distinct and mysterious cup.

Caffeine:

Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.

Steeping Instructions

Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Bold slap-you-in-the-face-awake taste and powerful smoky aroma. My coworkers even three cubicles away know when I brew it, jokingly calling out that I'm making "camp fire" tea.

Definitely one of the more interesting teas I've tried. If you find its smokey flavor too strong, a local coffee shop I frequent recommends blending 1/4 lapsang souchong with 3/4 keemun to calm it down. I tried it like this, and found it to be fantastic.

Delicious!

I am a big fan of Lapsang Souchong and the best I've bought has been from RoT. Smells and tastes like a campfire. It's nice and strong, just the way I like it!

I have loved this tea for many years. Couldn't find it for awhile, then I discovered The Republic of Tea. Was so happy to find they had it. This has a really great smoky flavor and fragrance. Very smooth, not bitter.
