Description

The blend

Lapsang Souchong is as delicious as it is distinctive. This pack conatins 100g of loose leaf tea, which has been processed with pinewood smoke permeating the tea leaves as they're being dried, resulting in a unique and extraordinary tea.

The taste

A smoky, golden tea that will evoke images of pine tree forests and ice-capped mountains with every sip.

The benefit

Black tea contains polyphenols, a type of antioxidant. Caffeine and an amino acid called L-theanine are also found in black tea, which is said can improve alertness and focus – even more than coffee!

The moment

When you need a breath of fresh air, this is the blend to reach for. Be instantly transported to a forest of pine trees and all the good vibes that being outdoors brings.

The creation

Using traditional methods of blending and tasting, this tea has been carefully crafted by the Miles team, using Miles experTeas!

Based on the edge of Exmoor and on Somerset’s coastline, we take inspiration from our beautiful surroundings to create a cuppa that embodies a little escape, evoking memories of a holiday in the West Country, with each sip. Our attention to detail and experience ensures a consistent, flavourful tea that will see you constantly topping up your mug.

Ingredients

The tea

100% Black tea

Perfect Brew

Perfect Brew

Black tea is best made with water brought to a full boil and used immediately for the tea to release its full flavour (if you're using a teapot remember to warm the pot first). Use one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea per person. 

Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes. If you like your tea strong add more tea, don't steep for longer as this will turn the flavours bitter.

Drink with milk, with lemon or on its own.

Perfect pack

Our Lapsang Souchong tea is available in packs of 100g or 500g of loose leaf tea.

Perfect pair

Enjoy this tea with skewers of toasted marshmallows or homemade s’mores.

Storage

Make sure you store your tea in an airtight container – a tin is better than plastic, or seal up the packaging it arrives in. Although tea feels dry, it contains 3 % moisture and oils that are essential to its flavour. If not properly stored these can evaporate. Keep your tea in a fairly cool, dry place, which is out of sunlight and try to keep away from any spices that could taint the flavour.
