What, first tasting note? But, but, it’s lychee and rose. Who wouldn’t want to try that? This sample didn’t last long once I opened it, especially since my mom wanted to try it too. The dry leaf is very fragrant, with an equal balance of fresh lychee and rose.
I only tried it hot but I thoroughly enjoyed it, particularly once it cooled down a bit. Just like in the scent, the flavours of the rose and lychee were well-balanced. I’m sure I would have been able to easily identify both notes if I didn’t know what was in here. It reminds me of a bubble tea (without milk) that I recently experienced: rose black tea with lychee jelly and boba. It was pretty awesome, except they put too much sugar in it. I’m sure this would taste similar if I were to ice it and add sugar.
Would I repurchase? I’m probably thinking so. I’m also curious about their straight up lychee blend now, and will have to pick that up next time I order, which will most likely be when our Canadian dollar makes a recovery.
