A vitalizing blend of fresh pear and vibrant lychee, accented with a touch of coconut.
This combo remains one of my all time favorites but I could not find a recipe which celebrated these magical flavours well enough, hence the creation of Pychee (Pear/Lychee).
FA lychee brings the authentic, fresh, lychee flavour to the mix and lays the foundation for the lychee layer. Lychee's unique tropical flavour (described by some as a mix between watermelon, pear and grape) is unmistakable and magical! Cap Sweet Lychee boosts the FA Lychee with a sweet, canned lychee vibe and rounds the lychee profile off perfectly.
The pear layer is courtesy of my favoutite pear combo consisting of FA & INW.
FA Pear brings the fresh, juicy pear element whereas INW Pear provides the grittiness, crunch and texture of a pukka pear.
FLV Persimmon is described by many as a peach/plum hybrid. I pick up up wonderful, deep, pear/quince nuances which intensifies the pear profile and adds that little intrigue to the mix...
The Persimmon can be substituted for TPA Dragonfruit at the same %. The dragonfruit variation is excellent, I just prefer the persimmon version.
FLV sweet coconut fulfills 3 roles here: it provides a touch of creaminess, a spot of sweetness and imparts that magical taste of fresh coconut ensuring adequate depth in the mix.
Feel free to add your cooling agent of choice - WS23 at 0.5% is just enough IMHO.
Give this one a good night's sleep, 3 preferable for the floral notes to dissipate.
