drank Cheeky Lychee by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

So I went into this tea a little blind. I had no earthly clue what lychee tasted like.

This tea, to me, is mouth-wateringly juicy…however, the juice tastes like my grandmother’s rose handsoap smells. Yeah, it’s just not good to me. I don’t know if I don’t like lychee or if I just don’t like this tea, but this is not one I’ll be replacing.

Yay! I’m glad it wasn’t just me. I sniffed the lychee tea at Tealish today and it had the same smell of rose soap to me, so I think I’m going to pass this tea on.

Im sure youll make someones day with it! Thats sometimes worth the pain of a soapy tea? Ha ha

Yup yup! Better than I learn I don’t like it on a mere 26g from DT, rather than a tin from Harney and Sons, or something like that.

DaisyChubb

Yes, I get a floral scent too. Not my cuppa I’m afraid.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
