Color point ("tint") and spectral power distribution ("CRI") are mostly uncorrelated, so it's certainly possible to have LED output along the blackbody curve ("good tint") but with poor color rendering, and also to have (different) LED output that is off or to the extremes of the blackbody curve ("poor tint") but has good color rendering.Sorry about that haha. I’ve had some low quality Samsung “CRI” emitters with puke green tint.
In fact, I witnessed a demo several years back of a set of colored objects in front of a white background, all lit by a multi-channel LED source. The light source was controlled such that the colored objects were changing color, yet the background was not - this was a realtime demonstration that tint and CRI can be decoupled.
