1 Tasting Note
I bought this tin of tea from my local asian supermarket. Trying new teas is so much fun and I couldn’t pass up the cute pink unique tin. I hope this is the same one you tried, because on the tin it says both “Choicest Tea” and also “Whole Dragon”. But it says “LICHEE CHINA BLACK TEA” on the front all the same.
This is my favorite “go-to” tea. Perfect for those times when I just need a quick cup of tea without a lot of extra bells and whistles. It’s dark enough to wake me up in the morning but the flavor is light with a hint of sweet from the lychee.
Both the smell and the taste of the tea is very clean and light. Sometimes I add some cream as I do with most of my black teas and though it isn’t necessary, it’s really good!
The flavors of the tea can be enhanced by adding more leaves. It definitely brings out the darker flavors if you do it this way. Just have fun with it.
