drank Lychee by Harney & Sons
735 tasting notes

I love lychee flavor, but I feel like with teas it can go one of two ways. It could either be really fruity and sweet like canned lychee, or rosey and peppery like fresh lychee.

This one is a more rosey lychee. Sure, there is a nice amount of fruity goodness mixed in. But the peppery flavor lingers longest. All of these flavors pretty much mute the black tea base. It’s not bad, exactly. But it doesn’t really impress me, either.

The reason I bought this is because Tea Forte stopped making their lychee-coconut tea. I loved it and now it’s going for like $55 a box on eBay. So… I’m planning on finding a good lychee tea and trying to make my own. But I think I’ll try a few more before I settle.

Flavors: Fruity, Pepper, Rose

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
