Enjoy Lucky Lychee by Jorden Ellis on 15th April 2018
I wish this would become a permanent Whittard's tea. I enjoy this very much, as much as the Piccadilly Blend. Very lovely and refreshing.
Lucky lychee by Beryl Oon on 6th March 2018
Lovely lychee fragrant brew. Very refreshing.

Given it's a black tea, this lychee flavour is quite refreshing, I don't brew for too long otherwise it can get strong, with or without milk this is a really nice flavoured tea.
The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…
The Imperial concubine Lady Yang Kuei Fei was said to be rather fond of lychees – so much so that the Emperor Hsuan Tsung had fresh lychees brought 600 miles from Canton to his northern palace, just to woo her favour.
