AMAZING, amazing, amaaaaaaaaaaazing. my nose leads the way with teas, for the most part. so buying tea online? unseen? unsniffed? it’s true, i had concerns. that said, every lychee tea i’ve sniffed locally i have found unpersuasive. so, i took a chance (cue abba!).
what an amazing return on my gamble! this is the smoothest, most elegantly liquored tea i have ever had. awesome with my standard cream and sugar and just as nice untouched (a rare thing for me… reserved only for my favourites). i have pushed this blend like you would not believe: oversteeped, under steeped, forgotten about, resteeped multiple times… i have varied the temperature, tried milk instead of cream. no hurtle seems to knock this brilliant tea down.
this is a very fine tea. refined. elegant. subtle. distinctive. and, i can’t believe it, but it has replaced my beloved amaretto from david’s teas. this is my #1.
thank you, tealux. if i could mark it higher i would, truly.
