A nice naturally flavored tea – meaning that I find no artificial flavors on my palate.
Strong but non astringent nor bitter black tea base which seems to hold up well to ice cubes if you want to ice your tea. I like this as often when I cold steep I still do not feel okay putting ice in my tea even with double leaf used.
Perhaps a Ceylon base although I am not sure of that.
I stepped a bit longer at 3:30 and it still is not bitter or astringent!
Made for an even stronger flavor without losing the flavor or the lychee or peach.
It is not an overly strong fruit flavor however so if you are looking for a strong fruit this may not be for you but if you like your teas lightly flavored with more of a good base flavor this IS for you!

I’m going to have to figure out what lychee is all about. Sounds great!

All I know or think I know lol is it is an Asian fruit. Or I should say a fruit grown in Asia. LOL
It has a less sweet flavor in my opinion.
Earthy.

I tried a lychee from the Asian market and thought it was horrible. I tried Harney’s Lychee tea and it was great. It tasted like a softly flavored rose tea.

Azzrian

Yeah I hear a lot of people do not care for the fruit. I had a fruit drink once from a health food store that was terrible!

I likhee the Lychee.

Lychee tastes like honey to me. At least when it’s a tea flavoring. Never tried the fruit itself.

Kittenna

Lychee is good, but if it’s bad/off it’s rather gross. The texture also might be offputting to some, IIRC, but it does taste a little honey-like, rose-watery like, sweet. I quite like them on occasion, but haven’t had one in quite a while.

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
