Melody, let's try a new tea today.
Sure thing. What did you have in mind?
Yes, it does. Smells good too.
What is a lychee?
I read that it is a member of the soapberry. Usually found in southern China and other areas. It's very tasty.
Should make a great tasting tea.
If the flavor is as strong as the aroma.
I've put 2 teaspoons of leaves in the pot.
Oh, no! It fell over.
Scoop up the leaves and put them back in. I'll set the timer for 4 minutes.
Look at the leaves dance!
What do you think? Agave or honey?
Let's try both. We each have a cup.
Done. Such a lovely color.
Smells fabulous. I've sweetened with just a touch of agave. It's really good. The tea doesn't need much.
I agree. It tastes great. now try mine with the radish honey. Yummy!
Oh, I agree. This is very yummy. The lychee gives a unique kind of fruity, kind of floral side to the tea.
We found this at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire.
Xyra's NotesThe Octavia Lychee Noir tea is a very nice, fruity, full-bodied black tea. I found that I did not like it as much cold as I did hot. The lychee becomes a bit perfumey. Personally, I do not lake that, but others may. I was able to resteep these leaves 2 more times and still had a nice strong cup of tea. The second and third time I used the radish honey and added milk. Each cup was lovely and creamy and very tasty!
Thank you for stopping.
