Lychee Burst tea is a fruitful blend of lychee essence and organic, black loose-leaf tea. It steeps a sweet infusion; with delicate notes of apricot, osmanthus and ripe pear. Bring out the flavor with rock sugar, and pour over ice for a refreshing change to regular iced tea.

Recently I received a sample of this tea from a tea friend in the mail! I didn’t even realize that The Persimmon Tree Tea Company offered a black lychee tea, but I was certainly excited to learn that they do and be able to try it. The last black lychee tea I fell in love with, The Tea of Kings, was from RiverTea so I can’t buy it anymore. I need a solid replacement.
My thoughts about this cold brew are that the flavor level of the lychee and black base are pretty equal, which is how I feel it should be. The black base is brisk, clean and full bodied with malty notes and slightly more floral notes. It reminds me vaguely of a high grown Ceylon? The lychee is juicy and realistic and doesn’t taste overly floral or chemical which is a trap that flavour often falls into with lower quality lychee teas. I taste the pear notes a little too, but they’re fairly flat and certainly not the focal point of the blend.
I don’t think this is my new lychee black to keep on hand, but it’s definitely one of the better ones I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. If you’re looking for a black lychee tea, my suggestion would be to start here after The Persimmon Tree’s hiatus is over.

The ingredients are large and bold and it infuses to a lighter brown. I enjoy this one both hot and cold! This has a WONDERFUL Vanilla aroma with a buttery hint followed by an array of spices.
The taste is remarkable. It’s sweet and there is spice but I think more sweet than spice. The vanilla is wonderfully intense and creamy-sweet. The orange comes out to play the more it cools.
This is one awesome offering from Persimmon Tree Tea Company!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again (and again)…I’m VERY impressed with The Persimmon Tree Tea Company’s Selection and quality of flavors/products!
The dry aroma of their Amore Tea is mostly minty but also has a stronger Rose Aroma as a secondary scent. The post infusion aroma is mostly Rose but a nice refreshing Mint Scent, too.
The color is a light brown with a little gray. The taste is very nice, pretty, and pleasant!
The Rose and Mint are about 50/50 equal in flavor…this in itself amazes me! The white tea is noticeable as well. This is a great uplifting and refreshing aftertaste! I really like this! Another winner from Persimmon Tree Tea Company!

A beautifully hand-crafted blooming white tea that displays a ring of jasmine and amaranth flowers, with blueberry and peach essence.
Halo from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is just outstanding and AMAZING!!!
It perfectly opened/bloomed the first time around without any imperfections whatso-ever and smelled of blueberry and peaches and that’s on top of the floral aroma…how awesome is that for a blooming tea!!??
I could taste the blueberry, peach, and flowers and it’s very yummy!
I tried a 2nd infusion on this and it was still very tasty! The only notable difference was the 2nd infusion was more floral. It was still an overall wonderful flavor tho!
This is probably one of my favorite blooming teas or flowering teas I have tried to date! This is VERY special!
