The blending of fresh or dried fruit is a time-tested method of integrating flavors into tea. This particular blend incorporates lychee, a member of the soapberry family with a delicate whitish pulp and a perfume-like flavor. Native to China, it is now cultivated in many parts of the world.
Try the neoclassical rendition of the Taiwanese - the ”muddling” method of hot fruit teas. Muddling a few lychee fruits, add them to your teapot and pour the Organic Lychee Green over the fruits. Savor the sweet and exotically mellow taste, or try this iced for rejuvenating summer afternoons.
This blend is especially wonderful as a delicate iced tea infusion. Best infused a shorter time than the quintessentially tannic yield of green teas – the Master Blender suggests steeping it for 45 seconds at 63°C (180°F). Also try it using the muddling method described above!
