This is probably my favourite every day cuppa, but I am having trouble finding a Waitrose that stocks it. Does anyone know whether it has been discontinued?

I got it loose leaf very recently, its one of my favourites. But i’m not sure if they sell it baggeg

Nothing quite like a cup of Lapsang, though mine came in a different packaging, I suspect it is simply the same series but repackaged. A full and bold flavour of dry, smoked meats and charwood, served from my clay teapot. Lovely stuff.

A highly aromatic tea that has an autumnal aroma, tastes slightly fruity and is quite sweet. A hint of smokiness.

Brewed in a 2-cup pot with a dash of soymilk in each cup.

Makes me think of autumn; damp leaves underfoot, bare-limbed trees, wood fires exhaling smoky sweet breath…

Like a good cigar after a meal. Probably.
