Fit for a king
Lychees are just about the cutest little fruits around. But their perfumed flavour is all sophistication. After all, they’ve been the favourite snack of Chinese emperors since the 1st century. This lychee-scented black tea is made by placing baskets of tea leaves over big pots of simmering lychee fruits. Now getting the royal treatment is as easy as steeping a cup.

Guess floral teas just aren’t for me because this one’s still too floral. Oh darn. A nice smooth tea overall.

No sir. I don’t like it. Well….I don’t hate it. It’s alright, but I think it is a bit floral for me. I’m having a little deja vu with The Earl’s Garden, though not as much with this tea. I could conceivable finish my 15g bag, but I won’t be re-steeping unless I am making an iced tea. I might swap it with something else. I am gonna see how the Cranberry Pear is and decide. I might mix the two. I think I will like that better. I tried this black, but then added milk and sugar, and that is a help.


AH, now that you mention a slight resemblance with Earl’s Garden I can definitely see it. I have to say though – Cranbeyy Pear is absolutely delicious, by far my favourite of the three new additions! Hope you enjoy it!


I admit I’m a bit dubious about the Cranberry Pear, as I’m not fond of cranberry, but I did get a small amount to try as well. Maybe I’ll give that one a go today.

I won this tea through a Tumblr contest given by :)
This is my second tea from David’s. This smells very strong! I have a commitment to trying just about every lychee flavored thing out there. Steeped I’m getting rose soap. Maybe a good thing, maybe a bad thing?
At first these sips are highly aggressive. Total, full on rose soap. There are some hints of lychee hidden in there. But it is pretty hidden. I think that this could use a tune up.

I had thought that lychee would be a difficult flavor to infuse into a tea, but remarkably there is a distinctive lychee note at the end of each sip. Impressive! Unfortunately, I’m finding that the floral notes are a little too strong for my taste, bordering on perfume-y. The scent is all floral, and the first part of a sip is floral through and through. It fades into a lovely lychee with a basic black tea background, though, so it isn’t undrinkable.

I love a good floral herbal tea, but I’m wary of floral blacks. This one is a good example of why. If only the fruit and flowers were more balanced, I could be a fan of this. As it is, I think I’ll finish what I have and pass on it in the future.

Hmmmm… I’m having a hard time making a decision about this tea. Do I like it? Do I not like it?

Part of me is completely put off by the overly-floral smell. With every sip I have to hold my breath it’s that overwhelming! Once I get past that though the tea isn’t bad: a nice light black tea, not heavy or thick, but can come off as soapy if I smell it while drinking. The smell… ugh…

Bought 10 grams of this one. And regretted about 8 grams of it at first sip. It is the one and only time I’ve actually spat out a tea, which is sad since I do enjoy lychee. This one though just seems to taste fake and . . . not soapy but a similar taste tingle on my tongue.

Never ever touching this one again, no matter how much someone tells me it isn’t that bad.


Totally agree! Smelled and tasted way too floral for me… and I normally like floral teas!

While I have to say I liked my first steep of this one, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. I was so excited that Davids was bringing out a Lychee flavored tea, so its dissappointing to not be in love with this one right away – maybe it will grow on me.
Anyways, if you don’t like rose at all, stay away from this one – lychees are prepared in a rose scented/flavoured syrup which comes out as one of the most prominent flavours of the tea. The black base is slightly more acidic than I would expect, but it does balance out the rose tolerably well. I definitely oversteeped and needed some agave and almond milk. I’m planning on playing around with the preparation to see if I can fine one that I like.

I purchased this because I like the blooming lychee, I do like floral teas, and it was on sale!

sad life, it almost tastes like potpourri, I need to play around with this tea, Im not giving up on this. Yet Im probably only saying that because I have 250g of it.
Damn my tea taste is so different from my normal appetite

I love lychee and have been trying to find this tea for months! Everywhere I have gone, they have said that they don’t carry it anywhere due to the high cost of the fruit…‘Challenge Accepted!’

I finally found this one and picked up 25g (not knowing if I would ever find it again!) I liked the smell of the dry tea (really fruity)however, I find that once steeped, it definetely becomes a more floral tea. I also found the taste to be quite floral aswell. I dont think that I liked it as much as I had expected to however, I definetely will reccomend to pick up a small amount to try if ever you are lucky enough to find it!

I just recieved a small amount of this oldie to try. So I made myself a hot cup – and it’s really good. I can actually taste the lychee fruit in it, and I like the flavour. Other than that, it’s a really fruity black tea. Wish I had more of it…
