Fit for a king
Lychees are just about the cutest little fruits around. But their perfumed flavour is all sophistication. After all, they’ve been the favourite snack of Chinese emperors since the 1st century. This lychee-scented black tea is made by placing baskets of tea leaves over big pots of simmering lychee fruits. Now getting the royal treatment is as easy as steeping a cup.

I passed by a different David’s tea location and had to check it out. From the outside it looked small but when I stepped in it had way more teas than the other location. Well even though I had more than enough tea at home I had to pick up a few small packages to try different flavours:) this one was one of those ones I have never seen at other stores so I gave it a try and it smells a bit perfumey and like lychee and taste wise is not bad. I taste the black base with lychee after. Not bad for a purchase on the whim! Btw this is the only lychee tea I have ever tried so I have nothing to compare it to.

I like this because it is not bitter- for a black tea, and seems to give me a nice punch in the wakeup zone. I cannot touch it after 3pm unless I want to finish reading a book til 4am, which is what happened…but it has a pleasant nice tangy flavor without having a miserable bite.

Hmmm this tea is pretty disappointing to me. It’s not that it tastes bad, it’s just that it’s not impressing me at all and I’m still looking for that lychee taste. I like when fruity teas have a strong fruit taste. This one doesn’t. To give you an idea, I’m gonna finish the little bag I bought, but I’m not gonna buy it ever again.

I love this tea!

I definitely recommend you brew it hot and let it cool down to room temperature with some sugar. It smells just like a ripe lychee and has a great sweet flavour to it.

I didn’t think I’d like this because of its floral notes, but I really like it! I added a bit of sugar, which brings out the lychee taste a bit more. I’d buy it again.

I love eating lychees. I love lychee martinis, but wasn’t too much of a fan of this tea. I think it was the overly floral, almost rosy notes which I wasn’t expecting especially when I read the ingredients are lychee scented black tea, apple pieces, and calendula petals. I’d suggest the Earl’s Garden over this.

This DOES taste like flowers, and not in a good way. I love lychees. I have lychee juice in my fridge (which I mixed with the tea to try and make it taste better). I was hoping this would be really, really good, and it just wasn’t.

Really good tea, love the fragrant lychee flavour and looking forward to trying an iced version in the summer.

I’m a huge lychee fan, whether it’s in a martini or juiced or just eating it the plain ol’ fashioned way — the whole fruit! So, that being said, I was expecting this tea to jump out at me with lychee flavour. I understand that it’s not infused and it’s really just an essence of lychee. And in that respect it’s really quite nice. But in terms of getting my lychee bang for my …. taste (?), it really missed the mark slightly.

It’s a good one, but I think it’s prompting me to mission a better version of itself. Suggestions anyone?

I thought this tea was ok. I can pick up this tea from the chinese grocery store because they sell the exact same tea. The smell from the tea was really nice and fragrant, but I can’t taste it too much in the tea itself. Shame though, I thought this tea would be different than the ones I buy from the grocery stores
