    Some light minerality and spices on the tongue. Light and pleasant astringency.

Our 2023 batch of what has become a Mei Leaf favourite is sourced from wilder growing bushes around Tong Mu. It is even more refined with rounded buttery notes enveloping the sweet poppy seeds, fruit candy and gardenia flower brightness.

Many people continue to be under the misconception that Lapsang is always a smoked tea. This is not true.

Lapsang Souchong comes from the Chinese name 'Zhengshan Xiaozhong' and literally describes a particular cultivar (Xingcun Xiaozhong) which is grown in this part of Fujian. The tea smoked over pine wood has traditionally been popular mostly for the foreign market (the French adore their smoked teas).

Pure Lapsang has two broad flavour profiles. Some Lapsang's go down the chocolate and dried fruits road while others are floral with fresh fruit and cut wood. This tea is distinctly the latter.

Our 2023 batch of Little Tong Mu is smoother and more buttery than previous batches which offsets the raspberry jam and gardenia flowers fabulously.

Tong Mu village continues to be a mercurial place producing all kinds of crazy tea and this one is an absolute steal for your collection.
