Share |


Flavor Profile:Sweet, rich flavor and aroma similar to red roses. Full-bodied brew with little or no astringency. Ingredients:Black Tea Leaves, Natural Lychee Essence.
Lychee is a blend of fine black tea and natural lychee essence. Together, they blend to 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
Lychee is native to Southesast 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.

Pairing
Lychee complements well with slightly spicy, dry foods and nuts. It is also great for making sorbet and ice cream.

For brewing black teas, we recommend using higher temperature water, close to or just before boiling (190 - 200 F), with a proportion of one teaspoon of leaf per 8oz of water. Some recommend water at a full, rolling boil, but in our opinion boiling reduces the oxygen content in good water and gives the tea a flatter taste as opposed to a livelier one from slightly cooler water. Steeping time can vary depending on whether you wish to drink with milk (or non-dairy equivalent) or without. To drink without milk, 3 ½ to 4 ½ minutes is plenty of time to bring out a well balanced sweetness and astringency. With milk, a slightly longer time is required, 5 to 6 minutes, to acquire enough astringency to balance the milk.
