Grown in the Wuyi mountains, our Lapsang Souchong of choice is pine-smoked with a small fire packing during the drying process. This invokes subtle notes of a Chinese fruit called longan, a lychee relative, known as ‘Dragon’s Eye’, and dominant vice notes of whiskey and cigar. Other versions of Lapsang Souchong can vary wildly, with some too weak and others over-smoked. We tested a lot of different options, and liked this one the most – and it’s organic.

It pairs well with breakfast, kindling elemental olfactory cues. It’s a great coffee replacement, and could be tried as a stand-in for other vices. With the warmth and natural metre of a pleasant campfire, it’s a severely underrated tea option. Pure and satiating, it’s potential black gold to those on a keto diet or intermittent fasting.

The Jar

Our European tea jars are made of dark ultra-violet glass, and are the embodiment of functional beauty. By filtering out destructive light and only allowing a specific spectrum of energy-preserving light, they’re designed to preserve the vitality of anything they hold. This photo-technology can be traced to ancient Egypt and is validated by modern science, allowing you to keep your tea on display in perfect control conditions.
