From Tealeaves

First blended a decade ago for the Mandarin Oriental Hotels, this tea is perfumed with a sweet and complex bouquet of lychee, which is prized for high polyphenols and an intense floral taste.

When it comes to tea, you consider yourself to be somewhat partial to original intent. In this vein, you sit down in the kitchen one day to try the neoclassical rendition of the Taiwanese – the ”muddling” method of hot fruit teas. Muddling a few lychee fruits, you add them to your teapot and pour the Organic Lychee Green over the fruits. Heading to your porch, you savour the sweet and exotically mellow taste, contentedly watching the world go by. Try this iced for rejuvenating summer afternoons.

The blending of fresh or dried fruit is a time-tested method of integrating flavours into tea. This particular blend incorporates lychee, a member of the soapberry family with a delicate whitish pulp and a perfume-like flavour. Native to China, it is now cultivated in many parts of the world.

This blend is especially wonderful as a delicate iced tea infusion. Best infused a shorter time than the quintessentially tannic yield of green teas – the Master Blender suggests steeping it for 45 seconds at 63°C (180°F). Also try it using the muddling method described above!
