I treated myself to black tea today! I saw there was enough of this tea left and then it was all done! This doesnt smell like lychee. Perhaps there is a subtle nuance of it. The brew was a nice golden brown and had a slightly nutty scent to it. It tasted great! It didnt need any additives. It was naturally sweet and the fruitiness was extremely subtle. Good tea overall! I cant say I will be purchasing this in the future. I love lychee and wished it had more of a presence in this tea.
Introduction: Lychee is a blend of fine black tea and natural lychee essence. Together, they blend to make a refreshing tea that can be enjoyed either warm or iced.
Full Leaf Specialty Black
Representing orthodox manufacture, whereby the leaf is hand-plucked and maintains an unbroken appearance, the tea leaves for this blend are selected fresh throughout various growing seasons of the year.
Lychee is native to Southesast Asia and the Indian sub-continent. Harvested in the peak of the summer, it is considered cooling with rejuvenating properties. It is a small plum sized fruit, with red outer skin, and sweet juicy fruit inside.
Lychee complements well with slightly spicy, dry foods and nuts. It is also great for making sorbet and ice cream.
Flavor Profile: Sweet, rich flavor and aroma similar to red roses. Full bodied brew with little or no astringency.
