Lychees were a favorite treat of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang’s favorite wife, Yang Guifei, one of China’s infamous four beauties. To understand the extent of his love for her, consider how she was originally his son’s wife before he fell for her and gave his son a new wife in exchange! Rather than attend to his court duties or matters of diplomacy, Xuanzong was solely concerned with lavishing her with gifts and attention to satisfy her fickle preferences. If lychee could make her smile, he would go to great lengths to provide her with fresh ones every day. This need lead to the establishment of a pony express spanning the length of the kingdom.
