From Red and Green Company

Among black teas, Lichee tea is highly esteemed in China. Following an ancient process, the tea leaves are infused with the succulent juice of the exotic lichee. One of best-known fruits in Southern China, the lichee is also a symbol for beauty. This tea has its delicate woody overtones with a hint of sweet lichee flavor.

I don’t know what lychee is supposed to taste like, but there is a pleasantly musky and sweet scent to this tea as it brews. Almost nutty but juicy, too, with a little bit of floral.

The taste doesn’t hit me as a fruit so much as roses. It tastes like a rose tea. A soft, pretty, gentle rose tea. So I like that but at the same time, I’m not a big rose tea gal. So while this is nice and I enjoy it, there’s no reason this is a must-have for my pantry.

I stumbled across this in my grocery store wanderings and bought it because I liked the tin and I like lichee. Lychee? I think either spelling is acceptable, but I trend with the “y”. Moving on.

This tea is a bit sweet, and the lychee is definitely there. I’m not sure what black tea they used as a base, but at gunpoint I’d guess Ceylon. The shortness of this log is going to reflect what I thought about this tea, because I found it good, but there’s not a lot to say about it. It tastes a bit like lychee, it’s pretty smooth, and it wasn’t bitter. I wasn’t getting a ton of depth from it.

I’ll agree with oOTeaOo, in that I’m glad I tried it but I doubt I’ll get more. If memory serves, it wasn’t cheap, and Samovar offers a much more economical [and in my opinion, tastier] option. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy playing around with steep times to see if I can get more flavor out of this one.

I’ve officially run out of this Lichee tea. This time around, I did not add any milk or sugar. It tastes just fine, but if I had oversteeped it, I would have considered adding it. Dry, there is a vague hint of lichee. I smell mostly the black tea, which is how I like flavored teas to smell like. After steeping, it smells rich, and the lichee is very faint. The color is of very dark honey. When I swish the tea in my mouth, I can appreciate the lichee flavor, which is nice. It tastes a little bitter, which in my opinion, it doesn’t ruin the experience. The aftertaste is pleasant but left my mouth a little dry. I suppose that happens with some black teas I’ve had. Overall, I like this tea. I wouldn’t buy it again, but it was worth trying for sure.
