28 Tasting Notes
4tsps for 3 cups of water. The leaves have a faint smell that I associate with Lipton tea. I could smell the lychee but I couldn’t get past the Lipton smell.
The liquor is golden amber with a little bitter taste. I couldn’t really taste the lychee after it was brewed and my tongue felt like it was coated after drinking it.
Now this will be funny. I am being very picky when I am reviewing and I did like this tea and would have it again. At first I thought this tea would replace my lychee from “T” shoppe, but I decided ‘life is too short not to drink your favorite tea’.
4tsp for 3 cups of water. You can smell the lychee in the leaves. The liquor is amber color and has a nice lychee scent. I like the lingering lychee flavor. This is my absolutely favorite tea. I drive an hour just to go to this tea shoppe to buy it. I’ve tried other tea shops so I didn’t have to drive so far but they just don’t compare. I drink a pot of this tea morning.
4tsps for 3 cups of water. The leaves were long and rolled with little flower petals. They smelled very good. You could faintly smell the grenadine and vanilla.
The liquor is coppery in color. You can smell the cherries a little more when brewed. There is a lingering flavor that I just can’t point out. I think this might be a characteristic of black teas but I’m so new to reviewing teas that I might be wrong. I feel like I have something still in my mouth, like there wasn’t a clean finish. I do like this tea and will drink it again but I will be adding something to sweeten it up.
1 tsp for 8oz. Small twisted white leaves with a nice sweet fruity scent. The liquid is very light and golden. It has no fruity scent. The scent was actually unpleasant like canned peas. It was not flavorful and not worth drinking. Even my daughter had the same reaction and she wasn’t even around when I drank it.
