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.


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.

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.


5 Stars 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.

One of my favorite teas

A friend introduced me to this tea years ago. When she described it to me I didn't think I would care for it, but I loved it. Have purchased tins drank it for years. Then I found other favorites and forgot about this tea, had a tin with 1-2 cups of tea remaining. Found it a week or so ago in the back of the cupboard, and fell in love with it all over again. Just in time for the end of winter. Reminds me of sitting in front of the fireplace, just a very warm, comfortable feeling. So bought another tin and enjoying this tea all over again.
