Taster’s Review:

I’ve had quite a few different lychee flavored teas, but I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a lychee and coconut flavored tea until now.  And that’s a shame, because these two tropical fruits go so well together!

The base of this tea is a delicate white tea.  It is light and crisp, with a fair amount of astringency, which I think seems a little more distinctive because of the lychee flavor.  The finish is dry with a sweet, musky aftertaste.

I think that the lychee and coconut are pretty evenly matched in this cup.  The result is a sweet, creamy, tropical-tasting cup that is deliciously different from other tropical flavored teas.

This particular blend is part of the new Skin Smart collection from Tea Forté, a line that has been crafted to work with the body to keep the skin healthy and youthful.  Personally, I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a tea for it’s purported health benefits, I drink tea because I love the taste of it.  But, if it’s good for me and helps my skin in the process… I consider that a bonus!
