Flavor Profile: Light bodied and as sweet as the lychee fruit that sweetens this brew. A lingering rosy fragrance is met with the slightly malty, very smooth, and mild liquor flavor of the black tea.
Tea Story: Drink this tea, feel the fruit.
Lychee fruit blended with black tea is great hot, but even better when served chilled. We don’t have too many hot, hot days in San Francisco, but when we do, we always make a chilled version of our Lychee Black to refresh us. Light bodied, extremely refreshing, and lightly sweetened by the fruit itself. This tea also makes for a great dessert brew. Use it instead of port after a good meal.
Samovarian Poetry: Lychee flowers naturally sweeten this light, salubrious, brew.
Food Pairing: Imagine crispy, buttered toast with apricot preserve. The Lychee Black is the sweet-tooth’s healthy companion. The perfect breakfast tea with milk – no sugar is necessary: this tea is sweet on its own. Pair with mild goat cheeses or brie. Desserts with fruit or scones with cream and jam.
