drank Lychee by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I was determined to not drink earl grey or black dragon pearls today. Absolutely determined. I dug and dug through my work tea drawer and found my Lychee tea! Perfect!

Fruity and rosy and naturally sweet. Swoony and summery. Like all the best liked things in the garden with black tea. Love.

So glad I went digging — this must be part of my hot weather rotation until the weather turns!

Good iced? I have part of an Upton Lychee sample I haven’t made my peace with yet…maybe better cold?

gmathis – I bet it would be good iced! My husband says all flavored iced teas taste like “flowers” so I rarely make them. He likes plain black w added oranges, lemons, limes, or mint and certain Earl Greys. Since I make big pitchers usually and love plain black with added oranges, lemons, limes, or mint and certain Earl Greys, I refrain from torturing him with “flowers” ;) (P.S. All berries taste like “flowers” too — even hot!)!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
