This is my first tea from Tea Shirt and I’m pretty excited that it’s Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt. But first let me tell you my first encounter with FRESH Lychee Fruit…
I used to work at a grocery store 20-some years ago and I always liked trying the exotic fruits that come in. One day we received some Lychee and I was super excited to try it! I peeled off the reddish spiky skin/shell and sucked out the fruit that was a slimy white. It almost looked like a small white onion. It smelled and tasted like paint thinner! I’m NOT joking! I must have gotten a BAD lychee because everything lychee I have had since hasn’t been like that THANK GOD!
Now I’m NOT saying that THIS Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt tasted like paint thinner! It’s just that silly story is something in the back of my mind each time I try something with Lychee in it now! I’m giggling as I write this but I wasn’t laughing at the time!
Anyhow…Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt…is a nicely flavored green tea. The strawberry cuts the lychee and the lychee cuts the strawberry! They work well together and play nicely with the green tea base! This Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt receives a THUMBS UP from me because it’s pleasant, fruity, tart, and does NOT taste like paint thinner! haha.
