China Lichee Congou black tea review (#17)

Flavored black tea
Nicholas Coffee Co.
$8.99/4 oz

Ingredients: Flowery Orange Pekoe grade tea with essential oils from Fujian Province, China.

It's Fruit Week during The 23 Teas of October! (#17)

I love my boba (bubble) tea with green tea and lichee syrup, so this lichee black tea seemed like a good bet. The lichee is earthy and spicy, but also almost floral.

The tea is very light, though. I use more tea than I normally would because of how delicate it is. The caffeine does not seem strongly noticeable to me.

Very good iced made with cooler water and agave syrup, but also nice hot with milk. Great for a light summer drink! And now that it's fall, I have it hot in the afternoon. It's an unusual flavor hot, so it's something to be in the mood for.


Nice medium-sized pieces.


Simple bagging at Nicholas.

Light liquoring with a copper color. This cup has milk added to it, making it a bit more opaque.

Come back Friday for a very deep red tea.

What do you think of lichee? What do you think of bubble tea?
