This is the first of the giant bag of samples from my order from The Persimmon Tree so here goes nothing! I ordered a bunch of stuff that was rather out there for my tastes so I’m not sure I’ll like any of them, but I was feeling adventurous I guess.

So as a caveat, I am not really familiar with lychee. Didn’t really have an asian supermarket nearby growing up in either country I spent time in and my parents’ taste and cooking was pure Americana/Canadian.

In the smell of the brewed tea I’m getting a faint fruity spiciness, I guess is not the word I’m looking for, but it’s the closest one I can find. Not getting much peach. The taste of the (too)hot tea is fruity and floral and pretty exotic to my taste buds. It’s not bad though, not in the slightest, just new. This isn’t a tea that I’ll buy again, but I’m glad to have tried it.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
