Description

Lychee Tea is a flavoured infusion unlike any other. It uses high-quality Black Tea scented with succulent, irresistible lychee. This small, round fruit was once a favourite of Chinese Emperors.

Now, it has the potential to be your favourite, too, when added to this ever-popular beverage. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring not only quality but also consistency. 

But why, exactly, should you choose Lychee Tea over any other brew? For starters, its uniqueness cannot be overstated, its flavour reminiscent of grapes with a hint of rose. Combine this with the maltiness of Black Tea and one has a match made in heaven. What’s more, according to the latest scientific research, it comes with potential health benefits. 

Studies have long suggested that this particular Type of Tea can improve life in small yet significant ways. For example, it might improve heart health, support the immune system and even reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. All this and more can be discovered today with our delicious, invigorating Lychee Tea. Why not find out for yourself? You won’t regret it! 

Lychee - All You Need To Know

The word “Lychee” derives from the Chinese “Lee Chee”, meaning “donor of the joy of living.” Our Lychee Tea embodies just that. Furthermore, there are several spellings of it, including “litchi”, “liechee”, “liche”, “lizhi”, “li zhi” and “lichee”.

The Lychee tree is the sole member of the genus, Litchi, which in turn belongs to the soapberry family, Sapindaceae. This perennial, round-stemmed plant grows best in tropical and subtropical climates, reaching heights of up to 28 metres (91 feet). 

The fruit itself is a drupe of around 3-5 centimetres in diameter. On the outside of it is the pericarp (skin), which is notably thin and hard. Most important, however, is the deliciously white, translucent pulp inside. This is the component added to our heavenly Lychee Tea. 

Are you ready to indulge in a beverage enjoyed by Royalty in ages past? Our Lychee Tea is, undoubtedly, fit for a King - or Emperor.

Health Benefits of Lychee Tea

Lychee Tea can boost the metabolism of fat cells. This enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently. In turn, this translates to periods of moderate exercise producing better, perhaps even more noticeable results.

It’s worth noting, however, that it can’t do all of the work for you. One must adhere to a healthy and active lifestyle for this Black Tea benefit.
