If teas could talk, Lemon Lychee would be a never-ending story. Yunnan wild black tea lends its mild honeyed taste to this signature blend; rosy lychee, its history as an emblem of romance; and lemon and chrysanthemum, their shared status as longtime symbols of longevity.
Enjoy hot or iced. Double amount of tea for iced drinks.

What is a reserve tea? Reserve teas are teas that offer in limited quantities due to the availability of the tea itself.
You would do well to purchase this.
There exist "gateway teas" (think, English Rose, Orange Spice, Peach Tea, mayhaps even Earl Grey) that are oft made of inexpensive, over-processed red teas. This is not one of them.
A fun, beginner tea in itself, Lemon Lychee performs well in taste and quality of ingredients, noting the unbroken, hand-rolled red tea leaves amongst the fragrant fruits and florals.
This tea is also hook, line, and sinker — with its potent & entrancing looseleaf fragrance, steeped aroma of a classic breakfast tea, and symphony of mellow & fruity tasting notes, this could be a regular afternoon tea beverage for anyone.
This will now be my go to tea to drink every day! I always find myself reaching for it every morning. I love the soft, fruity fragrant from the lychee and the citrus aroma when the hot water hits. I hope this never goes away! Thank you!
Lemon Lychee, PARU Reserve
I was gifted paru a month ago and wanted to try some of the other flavors they had to offer. I ordered the lemon lychee, pandan sticky rice, and blue chamomile. They’re the most unique flavors of tea I’ve ever had and I also got a few other green teas as a gift and they were also impressed with the quality of tea.
Thank you PARU team!
The shop itself is absolutely beautiful, and the service is top notch, but that’s a separate review itself. As we perused the shop, I came across this particular blend, and it’s absolutely as good as it sounds. When we purchased the tea, we were given some instructions for best consumption, and we followed what we were told. Love the notes in the tea, and it’s so good over ice as well. Refreshing to say the least, and I honestly should’ve bought the larger size. Guess that just means I gotta come back soon!
