I was going through my untried, unopened teas and saw this. Now, I absolutely love lychee/lichee. It is one of my favorite fruits! I am so thankful that they sell it at the farmer’s market store by the H-mart. Anyhow, I ripped the package open and placed it in a clean tin. The scent was intoxicating. The scent is so strong and sweet smelling almost to the point where I was thinking, “is this real?” The black tea leaves were small, thin, and wiry.

This tea brewed up a nice, dark brown color. The scent is still strong, but a little more subdued compared to the dry leaf. The taste is amazingly delicious. It is not bitter at all, so I decided not to add anything to this tea. It is best left untouched. The lichee taste is there and isn’t overpowering as the black tea base was perfect. The black tea and lichee scent was well balanced. There was a hint of nuts or toast in the back. The slight sweetness lingers behind. What a juicy tea! I am glad that this tea isn’t the usual “fruity, tart” tea in the ways of fruit teas. There is no astringency at all. It was so smooth going down my throat. I love when black teas are this way.

WOW! I am awake now! This has a nice amount of caffeine in it.
