From Paru Tea Bar

If teas could talk, Lemon Lychee would be a never-ending story. Yunnan wild black tea lends its mild honeyed taste to this signature blend; rosy lychee, its history as an emblem of romance; and lemon and chrysanthemum, their shared status as longtime symbols of longevity.

Enjoy hot or iced. Double amount of tea for iced drinks.

Ingredients: wild black tea, dried lychee, chrysanthemum, lemongrass, lemon peel

Caffeine level: High

A sweet Insta friend was nice enough to send me a sample of this (very expensive) tea. I’ve tried one other tea from Paru before, it was a black tea with Okinawan black sugar. It was good but too sweet for me, and not worth the high price IMHO. But I love lychee so I’m excited for this one.

It’s very tasty! The base is a nice blend of earthy, malty, a touch of honeyed sweetness. Very deep and dark and satisfying. And the lychee is present but it’s not over-the-top, quite authentic tasting with a sweet and juicy, slightly floral note. I will say I’m not sure I get much in the way of lemon, a little bit maybe? I would like a bit more I think. Chrysanthemum adds a slightly musty, somewhat floral herbaceous note. It throws me off a bit, I’m not sure I like the combination with the lighter, sweeter fruit notes.

Anyway, I do like it. The base is nice and the lychee tastes fresh and juicy. I don’t think I would pay the high price for it, but I’m thankful I had a chance to try it. :)

Roswell’s notes and the unique blends triggered me to splurge on Paru twice. This one looked up my alley, and I got it with their milk oolong and both pandan blends. All of their teas were high quality and original, and while I think some of them are a little bit too expensive, the company more than does its best to get you quality service.

Roswell’s hundred rating sold me hard, and I expected an intensely fruity tea with a chocolatey wild black tea base. I got what I expected, but under layers of flowers and chrysanthemum. The chrysanthemum to tea ratio almost struck me as being more of an herbal blended tea than a flavored tea, when I looked at the loose leaf, but there was enough oomph from the tea and fruit to make me taste otherwise.

There is still some dryness and herbiness for me, but the flavor and aroma are great in a hot western style after three minutes. It’s clearly designed to be an iced tea in its malty fruity lemon essence. I look forward to playing with it.

I have dreamed about this tea on multiple occasions now, for whatever that is worth.

The bag of it is without eyeshot from my work desk and sometimes I feel like it just calls to me. It’s this perfect medley of sweet lemon, lush floral juicy lychee, honey and caramelized yam notes, malty cocoa, and just… the tears of angels. Sometimes when I drink it I tear up a little at how well balanced and dynamic all the flavours are. I hope, someday, to craft something as delicious. I’m getting emotional just thinking about it as I write it, and I want to make myself a mug of it right now.

AAAAAAAaaaaaaahhh!!!

Lychee is so hard to get right and this sounds freaking amazing.
