drank Lichee Congou by The Tea Table
470 tasting notes

I’ve been enamored with lychee (which apparently is sometimes spelled lichee) in tea since I tried DT’s Cheeky Lychee, which was the perfect balance of floral and fruity. However, there are a LOT of lychee teas out there so I wanted to try a few more before I made a big purchase. Cause honestly, I could drink an iced lychee blend every day!

And lo and behold, this one tastes JUST like Cheeky Lychee. I mean identical—in a blind taste test I know I couldn’t tell them apart. Sweet, fruity, light, floral, with a nice strong black base that works so well iced. It’s also cheaper than Cheeky Lychee, which is always a bonus. I do have a jasmine lychee blend from them to try, but so far this might be the lychee tea for me.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
