From teasenz

Combining the sweet and crisp sugar aroma of the lychee fruit with the rich, complex flavor of top-quality black tea, our Lychee Black Tea is a delicious way to start a beautiful day.

The tea is harvested and finished in the spring, then carefully stored until the summer, when the lychees are ripe. The tea is then mixed with the unpeeled lychees and gently roasted to dry. The intense sweet flavor and floral fragrance from lychees are then absorbed by the tea, creating a mouth-watering type of tea with unique taste and aroma.

Okay, last one of night before I take another pain killer. Pain getting wayy too bad to focus anyway. So guess it’s worked out that most of these teas have sucked tonight for me :P
This one tastes like a candy. I don’t really know what lychee is really, but it’s really sweet, and I feel like I’ve had a candy that tastes a lot like this before.
When I drink this it’s super sweet, and it feels like I’m drinking candy, in liquid form. xD Which is weird. I kinda like this one actually.
The only problem I have with it is that the initial flavor is sweet and good, but then it has this sharp, tart bite to it at the end of the sip. It’s so sudden too. Not entirely expected.
But I can see this tea growing on me…I think I will enjoy the rest of this sample. It’s definitely interesting. And like nothing I’ve had before. It’s just so weird…
One day I will figure out which candy it reminds me of! :P
Tons of thanks to Christina for this sample! :D

First note for this tea!

I have to admit that I didn’t watch the clock carefully on this tea, so it’s entirely possible that I messed up the steeping parameters on this.

However.

Um… I’m not sure if I like this tea. I can definitely taste the lychee flavour, but it was really bitter and floral. I’ve had fresh lychees, and know they have a floral undertone to them, but I also know they can be quite sweet and juicy – I was expecting more of that juicy flavour to come forward.

Put it this way: I finished only half the pot before I had to leave the house in the afternoon, and then dumped the remainder down the drain.

I’ll need to experiment with this, as the sample from Teasenz was quite generous. But I really hope that my subsequent brews are more enjoyable than this.

Christina / BooksandTea

I think it was somewhere around 4 minutes. I really need to get an egg timer one of these days…

TeaBrat
