Review of Lychee Rose Noir

6 of 105 of 53 of 573 of 100

I had this tea with milk & 1 sugar

The Aroma is strong and also a little over sweet for my tastes. However I really enjoy the taste, the combination of lychee and rose is delicate, full, and sweet. I steeped my current cup for over 2 minutes, but it seems that for fruit teas, I prefer them steeped even longer to give a fuller taste. I find this tea to be calming and even more warming than the average tea (I also must recommend it with homemade french toast and fruit)

Like all of Canton teas, its leaning towards overpriced, but its a beautiful tea (and lets face it- everything in the UK is leaning towards overpriced).

Haha...I have heard that the cost of living in the UK is high.

This tea does sound good though. I have had Chinese black teas flavored with lychee, as well as similar teas flavored with rose, and the flavors have seemed to blend very well in both cases, so I could imagine the triad of tea, rose, and lychee going beautifully together.

And I have a very good impression of Canton Tea Co, although I still have yet to try anything from them!
