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.

We can’t get enough of our blueberries and cranberries since we were told they’re packed full of super powers. To get more of your daily antioxidants, try this blend of real berry pieces, which deliver a punchy, fruity taste unlike any fruit tea you’ve tasted before. Again, we’ve looked after the berries, not crushed them.
Compare our whole berries in our tea temples to the crushed up bits in your regular tea bag; whole is best.
Super fruity, this cheeky drink is a little tart.
With honey, if you like your fruit sweeter. Or cream.
Good if you’re feeling:
Slow and lifeless. The antioxidants in our super fruits will help stave off “Squashed Hedgehog Syndrome” (i.e. “feeling run down” – get it? Sorry).
To buy our super fruit herbal tea packed with berries online, select the quantity of loose leaf tea, temple teas or sample tins you would like and then add to basket.
Hibiscus, elderberry, blackcurrant, raisin, flavouring, lingonberry, blueberry.
One tea temple per person, infused in boiling water for at least 3 minutes. Don’t rush – just relax and watch the berries swirl.

Well, Colored Me Surprised!
I’m not sure what made me think of that phrase…maybe it was me reminiscing of a friends cat the other day…her name was COLOR ME RAINBOW…anyhow…on to the tea review, eh!?
I really thought this was going to be pure hibiscus! I’m glad I was wrong!
I could taste mostly elderberries and currants and then the blueberries sneaked their way in! THEN there was the slightest hint of cranberries towards the end of the sip! VERY interesting!
The website said this has raisins in it but the wrapping doesn’t mention it…just for the record I cannot taste raisins. The Hibiscus is accompanying the berries but really isn’t much of a tangy and/or tart factor in the taste. It’s more fruity and berry like than hibiscus…thankfully!
This was very good! And it totally surprised me! Nicely done TeaPigs!
