repare to embark on a smoky and alluring tea journey with our Beards Hollow Loose Leaf Tea. Crafted with Lapsang Souchong Tea, this blend offers one of the most powerful and intoxicating flavors of all our offerings. The semi-fermented mature tea leaves are meticulously laid out on bamboo trays and gently smoked over a smoldering bundle of spruce wood. The result is a rich and robust tea, bearing the unmistakable imprint of smoky flavors and a deep crimson color.

But that's not all – Beards Hollow Tea carries an added touch of the coastal uplands' woodland charm. Infused with wild foraged Western Hemlock needles and organic juniper berries, this tea evokes the serene beauty of the Pacific Northwest's forests. With each sip, you'll find yourself transported to a secluded hideaway amidst the woods, where the aroma of smoky fires and the essence of the forest dance in perfect harmony.

Indulge in the magic of Beards Hollow Tea, and let it be your go-to brew when you're in the mood for an enchanting smoky delight that combines the best of nature and craftsmanship. Whether you're winding down in solitude or sharing it with friends around a campfire, this tea promises to make every cup a captivating and immersive experience you won't soon forget.

Surprisingly good, because I usually hate lapsang souchong

I received this as a birthday present many years ago, and I was skeptical, to say the least. As a general rule, I find the base tea, lapsang souchong, to be undrinkable. It tastes like drinking water out of an ashtray. All that is to say that this blend really surprised me, because my tastebuds say it's terrific. I don't quite know how they pulled it off, but I think it's a combination of the juniper (which you can definitely taste) and the fact that the lapsang souchong doesn't overpower everything else. They seem to have understood that the tea itself is so intense that it needs to be used with subtlety; that more is not necessarily better.

That said, I suspect people who try this will either love it or hate it, because the flavor is still intense. But I'll give at least one vote out there from a person who still thinks lapsang souchong is vile: they just managed to use it effectively and deliciously.

Thank you so much for the review. Yes, Lapsang Souchong is an acquired taste. We see you left this review on our Pacific Northwest Inspired Wooden Tea Cup. Did you mean to leave it on one of our teas that contained lapsang souchong? We can change it for you if you can remember the tea blend?

Just what I hoped

I love the smoky earthy taste of Lapsang and this did not disappoint.

Oh shoot, no

I bought this because I love earthy teas and it sounded really great. For example I love pu erh which are fermented teas that taste like you’re licking the bottom of a horse barn. This tasted like a burnt cedar branch that you threw into water. The smell was worse than the taste but I could only drink half a cup. Sadly disappointed.

We are sorry to hear that you didn’t like the tea. Lapsang souchong, which is the base tea in this blend, is a black tea consisting of Camellia sinensis leaves that are smoke-dried over a pinewood fire. This smoking is accomplished either as a cold smoke of the raw leaves as they are processed or as a hot smoke of previously processed (withered and oxidized) leaves. The intensity of the smoke aroma can be varied by locating the leaves closer or farther (or higher or lower in a multi-level facility) from the source of heat and smoke or by adjusting the duration of the process. The flavour and aroma of lapsang souchong is described as containing empyreumatic notes, including wood smoke, pine resin, smoked paprika, and dried longan. Your description of a burnt cedar branch is on par with Lapsang souchong tea. If you send an email with your order number and a different tea you’d like to try, we’d be happy to send it to you.
