drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas
4 tasting notes

Once steeped, this tea has a yummy, fruity aroma. I was worried that the lychee aspect of the tea would extend only as far the scent because “flat scented water” has been my experience with flavored greens. However, this actually does taste like lychee! Like a combination of lychee juice and tea. There’s even a wonderful natural sweetness that lingers on my tongue long after every sip.

As for the oolong base, I wouldn’t recognize it as oolong in a blind sipping. It’s less prominent than I had expected. Even so, I think the subtle oolong base added depth (pardon my vagueness… I can’t really explain it) to the tea. All the elements in here harmonize perfectly with one another to create a relaxing and refreshing tea experience. It’s really delicious. I’m so in love with it.

I’ve just resteeped my sample. The flavor taste just as strong as it had in my first steeping. Yay!
