Lapsang Souchong Tea
Lapsang souchong is a very special black tea that is making quite an impact recently on the adventurous American palette. A black tea originally from China, it boasts a strongly smoky bold flavor that is absolutely delicious with milk and a small amount of sugar.
The flavor comes from an intense preparation: the tea leaves are withered over pine or cedar fires, then pan-fried, rolled and oxidized before being fully dried in bamboo baskets over smoking pine logs. Not necessarily a tea for everyone, hikers and backpackers swear by it, and some people swear themselves to lifelong relationships with this exotic brew. Try it with spicy and salty food, or as a unique afternoon pick-me-up.

“I think Nuts.com's lapsang souchong is better than I've gotten from a couple of fancy tea sites! It's smokier and more bold and heaven with milk and sugar. I'm back for more. I regularly recommend this website to others.”

“I used the Lapsang Souchong tea to make smokey flavored peanuts. A natural way to add smoke flavor to food. Thanks for your prompt service. ”

I am so glad to have found your website!
You carry my favorite candy, Mega Buttons; but you also have terrific selection of teas and nuts. It's a perfect combination!

“Once again, as if by magic, my latest order has appeared at my door! A half-dozen packets of fresh, delicious (and reasonably-priced)bulk teas that I was greatly in want of!
Thank you all, and thanks for the little gratis 'taster' of Muesli! Delish!

“The first really *good* figs in a long time . . . and the cinn. bears and ginger candy and tea and raisins were all way better than I'd dared hope. Thanks!!

“Not to sound as a broken record but shipping and packing is superior. Received my shipment 2 days before time slotted. This was a stock up shipment for me but I added a couple new items for me to try. Ceylon Tea brewed great. Has a wonderful flavor. Organic Drops are small in size but packs powerful flavors in a .1 oz weight. Yes, I weighed them. And the Lapsang Souchong Tea as per description from the website is spot on. Very delicious. I prefer my tea's pure without adulteration of sugar or milk.
Thanks again Nuts.com I am a very satisfied customer. Excellent selection at great price points and inexpensive shipping to boot. ;)”
