Beards Hollow loose leaf tea is crafted with Lapsang Souchong Tea to create an intoxicating and alluring tea that has one of the most powerful flavors of all our blends. The semi-fermented mature tea leaves are laid out onto bamboo trays and are smoked over a smoldering bundle of spruce wood. The result is a rich and robust tea with an imparted smoke flavor and rich crimson color. Added is a hint of the woodland uplands of the coast with wild forged Western Hemlock needles and organic juniper berries.

At Beach House Teas we take great care to package and seal our tea for the absolute freshest taste and why we package our teas within 30 days of blending. All our tea is carefully crafted in small batches and immediately sealed in a resealable natural Kraft stand up pouch or a 6-inch tall tea tin with a slip lid to seal in freshness.
All products at Beach House Teas are handmade in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. Because of this, the appearance may differ slightly with each batch.
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.
Beach House Teas
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.
After work go to for me
