Taken hot, with rock sugar crystals

I’m not sure why it’s called Lychee Red Tea, when it’s a black tea…

Fixed this way, the lychee flavor is very subtle, so mostly I’m getting the mild black tea flavor. I’ll have to try my next cup iced and see if I get more lychee that way.

I’m not really sure what lychee tastes like, anyway… I’ve only ever had it as a flavor in things (like sake!). I’ve never had a lychee fruit.


When I made my Rishi order a few weeks ago I was hoping they had this in stock. Strange because I don’t even like lychee. It tastes a bit too bitter for me, but others would say it’s sweet. It’s called red tea, because Asians refer to their black tea as Red not Black. And I suppose Rishi also called it a red tea because lychee is a red fruit :D


@Ricky, kinda like how red onions should actually be called purple onions?


Ha, yep exactly!


You should try lychees! They’re so good!

I’ve had the flu and been unable to write and without an appetite for much of anything, including tea. Today I feel almost human and I’m celebrating with this delicious lychee tea. Lychee is one of my favorite fruits and this tea does a reasonable job of bringing the lychee flavor to this mild black tea. Overall it is quite nice.


Yay, I’m glad you’re feeling better! :)

I visited today Central Market in San Antonio and it was a surprise to find so many loose leaf teas. My brother had recommended the Marriage Freres Lychee tea and when I saw the Rishi Lychee tea i had to buy it. It was a fantastic find, and my main reason to go back and buy some more! I used a little sugar, just a tad, and the lychee flavor is on top of the black. If you like lychee you will love this tea!
