Lychee is a blend of fine black tea and natural lychee essence. Together, they make a refreshing tea that can be enjoyed either warm or iced.
Full Leaf Specialty Black
Representing orthodox manufacture, whereby the leaf is hand-plucked and maintains an unbroken appearance, the tea leaves for this blend are selected fresh throughout various growing seasons of the year.
Lychee is native to Southeast Asia and the Indian sub-continent. Harvested in the peak of the summer, it is considered cooling with rejuvenating properties. It is a small plum sized fruit, with red outer skin, and sweet juicy fruit inside.
Lychee complements well with slightly spicy, dry foods and nuts. It is also great for making sorbet and ice cream.
Sweet, rich flavor and aroma similar to red roses. Full bodied, smooth brew with little or no astringency.
Brew one teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces of pure spring or filtered water at 185F for four minutes. Provides at least two infusions.
