This black tea is made in Fujian, the region where Lapsang Souchong originated. It is produced in the Wuyi mountains by Mr Lee. This Grand Cru boasts two unique features: it is shaped into pearls, and it is lightly smoked, which enhances its cocoa notes.
This splendid Grand Cru has been shaped into pearls which unfurl to reveal subtle cocoa, liquorice and honeyed fragrances alongside a delicate smoked note.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
