This was an impulse buy at Jungle Jim’s. If you’ve not been there, and live anywhere close to it, it’s well worth the drive. Yes, I sometimes drive nearly 2 hours to go to a grocery store. If you saw their selection (and not just of tea), you would, too.
This is a strong, black tea with a subtle lichee taste. The taste is more like that of canned lichees rather than fresh: a bit syrupy, as though they were plucked off the Chinese buffet and dropped into the tea. I suppose that’s why this tea reminds me of Chinese restaurants. It’s also a very good accompaniment to cold, leftover egg rolls.
