Lychee, a soapberry, is a fruit native to China that looks a bit like a strawberry before you peel the skin off it. The fruit losses most of its flavor during processing making it common to eat it fresh. We have tried to capture the flavor and appeal of Lychee in our Lychee Green that uses a classic Chinese green tea blended with the scent of lychee. Let us know how it turned out as it is a bit of an experiment.
Ingredients: Chinese Green Tea scented with lychee
I like green teas mostly. This one was a good diversion from straight green tea. I feel the Lychee gave it a smooth and rich mouthfeel.
