Lychee Black Tea
A lovely sweet & mild taste. Fine tea leaves with golden tips. This tea is popular in China.
The lychee flavour is infused by mixing the tea with unpeeled lychees, then gently roasted. The lychees release their aroma and flavour, then they are removed. The Chinese have been infusing flavours into tea since as early as 500AD. Jasmine, cinnamon, rose petals and orange were the most common.
