Drink Me: Mighty Leaf, Lychee
Another tea from Mighty Leaf that sounded interesting is the Lychee tea, so I included a bag in my last order. From the website, Lychee is “black tea from China that is scented with the exotic lychee fruit.”
Lychee tea is available in a 4oz bag for $10.95.
When I opened the bag I smelled the strong black tea, and also a pungent slightly sour fruity smell. It didn’t smell bad, just different than anything else I have smelled. I confess I haven’t eaten lychee, so I didn’t know what I was in for! Once brewed I could definitely smell the rich black tea, but also a light fruity scent. I confess I’m not sure how much of the lychee I actually tasted, but I found it was a good strong afternoon tea. I’ll have to think about blending it with some other tropical or exotic blends to bring out the flavor more.
