Sipdown! (40 | 355)

This one was decent. Definitely very lychee-forward, which doesn’t surprise me since there’s lychee flavoring but the raspberry is from fruit pieces. Naturally the flavoring is going to dominate, and so is the case here. Very floral and sweet lychee accented by a touch of tart, fresh raspberry. Getting the smallest hint of chalkiness from something.

Not a fan of the base though, mostly it tastes like Chinese sencha. Very dry and grassy and there’s actually a touch of bitterness even though I only steeped it for two minutes. So not one I would reorder because of that, plus the lychee is a bit floral for me. Also, where’s the macaron?

Cold Brew!

Last but certainly not least of my recent backlog of tasting notes!

This was a very lychee forward profile, but that hint of fresh raspberry with the already super floral and juicy lychee notes was really pleasant. Especially cold. Did I taste anything macaron related at all? Oh, absolutely not. Still, this was a delightfully light and fruity blend. I’d love to see Deb explore lychee a little more – it’s such a fun flavour to pair with other things!
