drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas
2491 tasting notes

I’ve been putting off sampling this one for awhile, I guess because some part of me didn’t really think it would taste like lychee. I was wrong. I was SO wrong. Not only is the taste & aroma true, it matches the floral oolong so beautifully that I will have to add this one to my collection at some point. For now, it’s a lovely spring like cup, bringing to mind the narcissus & daffodils that will bloom in my yard in a couple of months. Time to resteep & sit in my sunroom, because in spite of the snowy outside, the sun is shining & it’s really nice back there. A sunny tea, a sunny day, surrounded by my little fruit trees & other plants.
Yes, there is a Heaven…

LOVE this tea :)

ahhh, lovely afternoon…I felt the same about this tea, I was somewhat expecting not to like it. The best part is the lychee remains through all the subsequent steeps. It is spring in a cup!

staple for me

It really was VERY re-steepable, with the lychee flavor lingering into all the steepings. I drank the first cup plain, & added a pinch of sweet to the subsequent cups, Yum!

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
