If you didn’t already know, Brutaliteas originally started back in 2016 when owner Courtney decided to pursue and build a business centered around loose-leaf teas. When brainstorming ideas knew that she wanted to create something for a specific niche of people, and that’s when one of her friends suggested creating metal-themed teas since they were fans of the genre; and in a local Denny’s, Brutaliteas was born. Courtney launched the Brutaliteas website with the original 25 flavors later. Now six years later, Brutaliteas has over 100 flavors and themed blends incorporating music, horror, and puns into the beverage we all love.
Lycheep Trick is one of the Brutaliteas music-themed teas based on the band Cheap Trick; this blend is sweet and floral lychee rose green tea. As I already mentioned, Lycheep Trick is a green tea blend composed of green tea, apple pieces, rose petals, lychee, and rose flavors. When I first steeped this blend, I was a bit skeptical, don’t get me wrong, I love lychee, and I love rose; however, sometimes I’m not a fan of floral green tea blends.
Right off the bat, this blend smelled incredible. It reminded me of my favorite lychee jelly with a touch of summer rose. When steeped up, this blend was just beautiful, the smooth green tea base wasn’t bitter at all, and the sweet lychee carried the floral rose note so perfectly that this blend has become another favorite of mine from Brutaliteas.
Flavors: Honey, Lychee
