Thumbs up!"If you're looking to make bubble tea with real tea and no additional flavoring syrups I would give this tea a try. "

If you've never had lychee, now is the time to try, though I would suggest you try the actual fruit to understand this tea better. Lychee is a Chinese fruit, though I have picked them in Florida before. They grow on a tree similar to a peach tree, the fruit is covered in a reddish pink skin that is peeled back to reveal an opaque fruit with a large dark seed in the middle. The only way I can describe is that they look like alien eyes, that's what I call them. So ready for some alien eye tea? They're also an aphrodisiac!

Canton Tea is known for producing and sourcing exceptional teas. Their Lychee Black is from Fujian, China. Canton's site does not exactly say how they achieve the lychee flavor, most likely the leaves are sprayed with flavoring.

This tea was brewed for 2 minutes at 200 F, the liquor is reddish-brown and very crisp looking. The scent of the infusion is very sweet and filled with peaches. The first infusion had a strong peach taste to it, the lychee taste lingers at the end. Lychee flavor is more pronounced in the second cup. I'm not a huge fan of fruit flavored tea, overall this is a good tea, but certainly not the best offering I've had from Canton. If you're looking to make bubble tea with real tea and no additional flavoring syrups I would give this tea a try.
