I am always excited to try a new lychee tea and this was no different. However, I’m not sure how I feel about this blend. The congou is a touch smokey but other than that it is rather flat which would be perfect to highlight the lychee flavor. Unfortunately though, the lychee flavor doesn’t take advantage of this mellow base and instead it also decides to hide in the background until the end of the sip where it appears as a floral aftertaste.
At first, I wasn’t too big on the taste of this tea. It has a light scent of rose, and the bright smell that is lychee fruit. The more I drink it, the more I warm up to it. It reminds me of my favorite Lychee bubble tea I used to get whenever I went to West Edmonton Mall. It doesn’t seem to have a lot of different layers to it, but it’s a nice mix, smooth. It leaves a suprisingly sour after-taste. I’m glad I tried it, but I don’t think it’s one I would need to keep on my shelf.
This is a very well rounded brew. The Congou gives it a smoky and bold flavor. This dark and rough taste is then smoothed out by roses. I did not taste lychee except for the slight sweet after taste. This is a very red floral tea. I can get behind this blend; I enjoy its florality without the chalkiness of pollen. Its very decent.

This is a very smooth black tea with a strong floral flavor. There was a bit of astringency at the end of the sip. Not my favorite…but there have been so many winners in this box, I really can’t complain!
