In 1989, during my first trip to China, I was sightseeing on Lamma Island, near Hong Kong. I spent the entire day there and was rather amazed to not see another Westerner. It was October and the weather was excellent.

Browsing the local markets I spotted tins of tea in one small shop. I was relatively young at the time--only 39--and being rather uncultured I did not know anything about tea. Purely guessing I selected two tins each of Lichee Black and Jasmine to take back home with me.

When I returned home I put the tins in the cabinet and subsequently forgot them. Years passed and the tins were packed away during various job-related relocations. My wife then developed a love for fine tea and was therefor given my tins.

One afternoon soon after she asked me about the origin of the tins. I had to think for a while to remember when/where I had originally purchased it. Much to my surprise, I realized those tins were now 20 years old. Curious as to their condition I opened one of the tins of Lichee Black. The aroma was very clean and inviting. I therefore made myself a cup. The flavor of that cup of 20 year-old Lichee Black tea was the finest, most genteel I had ever had.

In the subsequent 2-3 years, we've grown to appreciate many varieties of tea. I continue to hoard my half-pound tin of Lichee Black tea and even after repeatedly opening the canister, the tea continues to stay fresh and aromatic, and incredibly smooth.

Having just returned this week from my 5th trip to China (Shanghai and Nanchang, this time) I went to good old Amazon to see if my Lichee Black is still commercially available. I am amazed and very pleased to see that it is.

You will not be disappointed with this variety of tea, whether you are a connoisseur or a novice.

I have been drinking this brand of lichee tea for over 30 years, whenever I could find it (thank goodness for the internet). The quality has never faltered. As other reviewers say, the lichee in the tea is not overpowering--more of a delicate roselike aroma than a fruity taste. The tea itself is not too tannic, and it re-heats well.

I have one large mug of lychee tea every morning and I really like this brand. The aroma is delicate and not overpowering in the morning. This company's tea is the nicest I have found. The leaves are also nice and large, not little dust mites!!! I have been drinking this flavor for several years and truly enjoy it. Much nicer than other brands I have also tasted/tested :) Hope you enjoy it as well.

I bought this tea as a Christmas gift for my mother. I also got another one tin for myself. Both of us really enjoyed this tea. It has a nice flavor. It can easily be brewed twice.
Also something I thought was odd is that the tin has two lids. When you open one lid, there is a smaller opening on the inside with another lid in it. I had never seen this before, but I'm sure it makes it very air tight.

My daughter and I visited a Japanese tea house and they served lychee iced tea which neither of us had had before. We loved it. (At first it seemed strange--it IS unusual--but it grew on us very quickly.) If you're into trying novel teas, try this!

I decided we needed to have some of our own and bought this brand. At first, upon opening, I thought wow, it's really heavily perfumed, and thought maybe we wouldn't like it, but it brews a perfect pot of subtly sweet/flowery tea (I don't use a lot of the leaves and I brew for three minutes, served with milk). Haven't made it iced, yet, but I will.

I like that they double seal the container. While everybody else is cutting costs and packaging as cheaply as possible, this is a very nice bonus and will keep the tea flavorful for a long time, I think.

I use this for our "special" tea, don't drink it every day, because I don't want to become so used to it that it becomes ordinary.

This is a wonderful tea!

This is the best lichee tea on the market. If you can't find it fresh from a bin in a tea shop (and even then, it can be too perfumey), buy it in a tin that looks like this. Several brands use it; they're all great. I drink this tea when I want to be still, when I want to focus, or just to sip and savor.

Guangdong consistently produces some very good 'basic' level teas, some of the most reliable options in loose tea for introducing a given variety to a novice. However, their Lichee black tea is something else entirely- An exceptionally blended tea that offers a soothing, delicious cup to absolutely anyone, from a person who has never once tried loose tea before up to a dedicated fanatic. When I feel strung out or irritated, no teas that I've had- From pre-qingming greens to decades-old pu'erhs- have held such an immediate and powerful calming ability. The overwhelming, delicious and relaxing scent combined with the deep, sweet and thick taste (and even the pretty ruby color) make it one of the most easily appreciable teas that you'll find.

Recommended to anyone.

This is not a Lichee Tea at best its a week black tea wit a very faint Lichee taste.It is drinkable however it isn't worth the price. You can get a much better quality lichee tea from reputable online tea dealers. I would not serve this tea to my friends.
