I’ve been wanting to try this tea for a while now. I had thought I would get some in a swap, but I got a package in return (even though I didn’t intiate the swap!). Oh well, I ordered a sample with my Harney order so I definitely have some now. I love ginger, and I love lychee, so this was a must-try.
The steeped tea on this smells a lot like ginger but not a lot like lychee. The flavor is a bit more balanced, although the blend is such that I don’t really pick up any one particular flavor very strongly. The most predominant is probably the ginger, which is not really spicy and is a bit sweet, like candied ginger. I do get a bit of juicy, lightly floral lychee to it as well, rounded out by a decently tasty black tea base. Overally a pretty tasty tea, although I am not sure that I would reorder.
