drank Lychee by Chado
58 tasting notes

Perhaps I only like fresh lychee, in cocktails, because that’s the only way I had it before this tea. And I don’t love this tea.

Very mild scent, relatively mild flavor. It tastes kind of like chapstick. More perfumey than fruity. I don’t like it, but it isn’t gross. Just not my thing.

Edited to add: this improves as it cools.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
