From Ten Ren

Lychee Black Tea is made from Black Tea which has been scented with lychee peels. Lychee or lichee is a sweet tropical fruit that is popular in Asia. When preparing and drinking this tea, one is instantly amazed with its strong pleasantly sweet fruity aroma. When brewed the tea has a reddish brown hue and a light sweet honey-like taste. Lychee Black Tea makes an excellent ice tea and can be served with sugar and/or cream. With sugar and milk, it is commonly used to make the popular Taiwanese Boba, tapioca, or bubble tea drinks. The water used to steep this tea should be at the boiling point, 212°F (100°C). Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired concentration.

I didn’t have much time to savour today… but overall, I was pleased! not thrilled mind you. The black tea, though light, comes out first, but I get the impression that the Lychee, which I get in the aftertaste and background, would be more present with some extra sugar. I added agave, but only a few drops. Even still, it is very refreshing and not at all astringent (yay!)
I’m curious as to what I can find in this tea when I play with the sugar/concentration/steep time etc. I’m at work so have no control over the water temp. I don’t think it is at boiling when it comes out of the tap/coffee maker. Such a shame… I wish the David’s was closer to my work so I could have a proper cuppa more often.
Anyhow, I’m hoping I can up this rating next time :)
Maybe I will even add some milk. Daring, I know… (that was sarcasm btw. I’m so funny… haha not… )

I love lychee! When I was at ten ren tea I was looking for new and exciting goodies to buy and try I saw this lychee black tea in the giant tin. I asked the young lady if I could have a smell and it smelled heavenly! I bought 2 oz and made a pitcher of iced tea with it as soon as I got home. I never added any sweetener. It was fruity, tart and refreshing with just the right amount of natural sweetness. I went through those 2 oz quick and I had to go back for another 6oz. I have yet to try it hot.

As soon as I saw the word lychee, I knew that I had to try. It’s one of my favourite fruits, how could I resist? I found this tea quite good & plan on purchasing it again in the future.

Time to finish the EU TTB teas so I can start a new. The sign up is open by the way for round 4!

The raw leaf is wonderfully sweet and pure lychee like with a slight malt and smoke finish. Very pleasant!

Sampled with a drop of milk.
Flavour is malty yet sweet with lingering lychee notes and a touch of smoke. Seems to remain consistent throughout the sips as well, even as it cools. Though there is some dryness now in the after taste.

I admit that I’m not a lover of lychee, it tastes like artificial sweetener in my opinion. Overly sweet yet something almost chemical like about it. Love the smell but just not a fan of it’s taste. This is in general and not aimed at this specific blend. Still it’s pleasant enough!

Nothing I would miss or desire more of but a nice tea all the same.

Ooh, a smoky lychee tea? I’ve never had something like that before. This is going on the wishlist!
