Our regular tea order

As always, the Lapsang is really nice and smoky, no dust and a lovely flavour. Have tried other suppliers but have always come back to loose leaf tea from Wiltshire Tea.

A pleasant smoky flavour

I love Lapsang tea so when purchasing some other tea I added this tea. Whilst the tea does have a pleasant smoky flavour I like me tea quite strong. When getting the tea strong enough there was a slight burnt flavour which I have not experienced with my regular brand of this tea.

Smoky Lapsang

Love this tea both with milk and without.

Much more pungent than the stuff available in a supermarket. A little goes a long way. Good company and prompt delivery. Use them on a regular basis.

Not so good

I have been buying this tea for a while, either direct from you, or from a local shop. Sadly, I think the quality has deteriorated - the leaves are smaller and the flavour not as good as previously. Hope this temporary!

The Wiltshire Tea Company

Hello Emma Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you have felt the tea wasn't as good as usual. We get some variation between crops which can make a slight difference to the taste. With Lapsang the smoking process can make the biggest difference and it seems at the moment its not as good as it has been. I will ask our suppliers if there has been any change to this part of the process. Regards Nick
