The color is a golden red brown with emphasis on the brown. Almost like a translucent brick red.
I love the smell of this tea. You can really smell the lychee and the raspberry, but not the black tea all that much. The color sort of indicates that it’s not a very strong black tea. Most of the flavor looks like it comes from the fruits while the color comes from the black tea.
The first taste is a strong taste of lychee. The fruit is very strong and is almost over powering to the other two tastes. The black tea is soft and comforting and by far over powers the raspberry. I have always found lychees to be a little sour. What this means is that the tea is a little sour. I want to make it clear that it isn’t bitter though. It is also sweet. The black tea is a little milky to the taste. They have definitely added extra lychee and raspberry taste to the tea. I’m generally not a fan of extracts.
