The tea is harvested and finished in the spring, then carefully stored until the summer, when the lychees are ripe. The tea is then mixed with the unpeeled lychees and gently roasted to dry. The intense sweet flavor and floral fragrance from lychees are then absorbed by the tea, creating a mouth-watering type of tea with unique taste and aroma.
