Last cup of this tea. Very strong black tea, syrupy lichee flavor. Not sure I’ll be investing in it again, but it was good while it lasted!

“Weak weak tea, i can barely taste or smell anything in this tea, nothing but a dull bitterness. Waste of time and money.” Read full tasting note
Pure black tea flavored with fresh lichees.
A succulent summer fruit, lichees impart an elusive sweetness to black tea. Only the natural juices of the fruit are added to the tea.

I had to check to see if I wrote a note for this tea from an ANCIENT teabox and I hadn’t yet, so this is just to say I DRANK THIS. It’s actually a really good teabag – black tea with lychee flavor and the lychee really holds up after all these years. I like it! It looks like Foojoy also has some loose leaf. And embarrassed to say I actually have one of their teas and it might be the oldest tea I own. Time to go digging for it.
I was pleasantly surprised from this tea. It reminded me at first sip of an Earl Grey (I must admit, I DO NOT like Bergamot oil), so Earl Greys are my least favorite teas. However, upon finishing my cuppa, I really enjoyed drinking this tea and can’t wait until my next mug.
The aroma is of a nice, mild black tea with a soothing, sweet fruity character.
The taste profile, is as the aroma describes; it is a nice mild black tea which is complimented discernibly by the lichee/lychee/litchi fruit; neither taste facet overwhelms the other, the lichee/lychee/litchi fruit nicely compliments the black tea and the black tea is not too strong as to overtake the palate. Foojoy never mentions what type or blend of black tea(s) they use for this offering but it is exemplary and delicious!
The aftertaste is not much. There is no lingering of any kind, just a sweet whisper of the fruit and a mild reminder of the tea. There is no mouth feel, tartness or bitterness that is leftover.
Since venturing into lichee tea and pleasantly surprised by it, I will be trying this brand’s loose leaf version as well as other brand’s version of lichee tea(s).
I highly recommend this tea…a fun, delicious finding!
