From Dethlefsen & Balk

En route to China! Yes, this is where we learn mandarin in a very different fashion: as interaction with Chinese bamboo and a hint of delicate lychee. The combination of fine Sencha and the fresh sprouts of slightly nutty bamboo leaves offer the ideal base for the exotic fruit indulgence which will put a smile on our face. Freeze-dried tangerine pieces and lemon peel offer a sunny sight as well as a truly summery freshness in taste! Ingredients: green tea (77 %), China bamboo leaves, freeze-dried tangerine-orange and lychee pieces, flavoring, freeze-dried lemon peel, safflower.

Thanks Stephanie for sending a bit of this my way.

There is nothing offensive here, but really nothing remarkable either. I’m not sure I can actually taste either lychee or bamboo – vaguely fruity green, but nothing special.

This is an interesting one that TastyBrew sent a bit of to try with that amazing package – thanks again! I’ve tried one other bamboo tea and one other lychee tea. I have NO idea what lychee is supposed to be like, but to me both of them tasted like how plastic smells, if that makes sense. So I can think of better things to be drinking! I had no idea what time/temp to steep this one at, since it is bamboo that can steep pretty hot but also green tea. Dry, the leaves smell like dill pickles! What? The last gulp kind of tasted that way. This one is different anyway, but I don’t actually find it terrible.

ETA: I’m just now reading tasting notes and it seems others have noticed a pickle flavor too!

Holy, what a weird tea! Lychee, by the way, tastes very much like a large, sweet grape to me. I once bought a huge amount with a friend from an Asian grocery store in Calgary, and we ate them all that night… and were sick the next day from all the fruit. :$

Tea Sipper

A big ole grape! Good to know! :D

MissB

Heh. Well, prickly grape. It has an outer shell that’s prickly, and it comes off easily.

The inner fruit looks like an eyeball. I’m not a fan… :)

I received this in a swap with Ellyn! The aroma of the dry leaf is quite unique. After I read Ellyn’s review on this tea I was kind of afraid to try it becuase…. you know.. pickles…
The flavor is interesting. I can definitely taste the lychee and the only way I can recognize the bamboo flavor is because I have tried just plain bamboo tea. The lemon and tangerine flavor really stick out. Everything just blends in an odd way. This is a very exotic tea and I think it’s ok. Not the best, not the worst. I think it would be pretty good iced. Thanks again Ellyn!

Alphakitty

Oh, bamboo and lychee? That sounds interesting!

KallieBoo!

Definitely an interesting one. I’m just happy I didn’t get pickles out of it :\ I dislike pickles…

Alphakitty

I had a tea that reminded me of pickles once, though I can’t remember what it was. It was… weird, to say the least.

Ellyn

I’m glad you didn’t get pickles! I was so weirded out by that..but everyone is different! Enjoy!

Ellyn

I figured someone else might enjoy it! :)

KallieBoo!

I could see how you could get pickles out of it. There is that odd flavor to it.

I am not adding a score for this one…it tastes like pickles! I had my husband try it and he thought it tasted like pickles also….very strange. Any reason why this would taste pickle? I got it in a swap but it had never been opened…..

anyone want it? maybe you will get lychee or bamboo….

I got this in my swap with brewTEAlly sweet

Hmm…I’m not sure what to make of this! It’s kinda vaguely green tea and fruity flavored, lol. Maybe I’m not big into bamboo. I think I’ve only had it in tea one other time and it was strongly artificially flavored (Bamboozled from David’s) so I couldn’t really even taste the bamboo. Anyway, it was fun to try this but it’s not really my thing :)
