This is another of Taiwan's complex black teas and along with the others is one of the highest quality teas made anywhere in the world. The tea is produced on a cultivar recognised by the Taiwan Tea Research Station as Number 17 or Egret. It is a unique and incredibly aromatic variety expressing fruit and floral fragrances. It is a supremely smooth infusion with a lasting fruity aftertaste. Some tasting notes are lilac, violet, dried fruits, Turkish Delight, honey sweet, spiced, cranberry, maraschino cherry, golden raisin, cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, fennel, mandarin, tamarind, orchid, lychee, pomelo and cocoa. Our supplier Mr Hsu, is always surprising us by producing black tea from tea types normally made into oolong, or part oxidised tea, and this is a great addition to Ruby, Blue Heart, Ever Spring, Buddha's Hand, Golden Lily and Honey Hon Cha.
