Preparation: Brewed western style in a ceramic infuser mug.
First steeping: 3 minutes at 212 degrees.
The hot infusion smells wonderfully of lychee with a delicate undertone of grapes and roses. White hot, the liquor has a dominate essence of lychee and a suggestion of sugary rose. As the cup cools, notes of hibiscus mingle with the lychee and the floral undertone is less pronounced. This tea lingers pleasantly on the palate and I think it would be wonderful chilled.
Flavors: Grapes, Lychee, Rose
