2020 Organic Golden Egret 17 is a smooth black tea from Taiwan, made from the TRES #17 cultivar. It has an alluring honey quality to it that the growers in Taiwan refer to as 'mi xiang,' which can arise naturally due to leaf hopper interaction or can be invoked during the baking/drying process at the end of tea production. The mouthfeel is very silky with aromatic notes of citrus and tropical fruit.
TRES #17 is often used to make Oriental Beauty Oolong. Once you taste this tea you will likely see the connection between the two.
