drank Cheeky Lychee by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

While I have to say I liked my first steep of this one, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. I was so excited that Davids was bringing out a Lychee flavored tea, so its dissappointing to not be in love with this one right away – maybe it will grow on me.
Anyways, if you don’t like rose at all, stay away from this one – lychees are prepared in a rose scented/flavoured syrup which comes out as one of the most prominent flavours of the tea. The black base is slightly more acidic than I would expect, but it does balance out the rose tolerably well. I definitely oversteeped and needed some agave and almond milk. I’m planning on playing around with the preparation to see if I can fine one that I like.
