This is an interesting one that TastyBrew sent a bit of to try with that amazing package – thanks again! I’ve tried one other bamboo tea and one other lychee tea. I have NO idea what lychee is supposed to be like, but to me both of them tasted like how plastic smells, if that makes sense. So I can think of better things to be drinking! I had no idea what time/temp to steep this one at, since it is bamboo that can steep pretty hot but also green tea. Dry, the leaves smell like dill pickles! What? The last gulp kind of tasted that way. This one is different anyway, but I don’t actually find it terrible.
ETA: I’m just now reading tasting notes and it seems others have noticed a pickle flavor too!
