Big Leaf Floral Green Tea

 **It seems that green teas are not the biggest seller here at Mountains Stream teas in the winter. This great tea is going on sale to see if we can change that!**

This bug bitten tea was hard to name as it has so many beautiful descriptors. A soft vegetal upfront melds seamlessly into an enduring jasmine floral before the lingering sweetness given to it by the bite of the green leaf hopper takes over for the aftertaste.

Made with a  relatively old and and rare cultivar, Big Leaf Oolong, this material is usually made into Honey Fragrance Blacks and Oolongs. Care, skill and luck has created this lovely and rare tea.

Carefully brewed, rewarding experience!

Every tea I've had from Matt has been 5 stars until this one. So why am I still giving it 5? I adjusted my brewing parameters!! Unlike most of the teas on the site, this one demands your attention to temp and brew time. First go for me even at low temp was too vegetal to my liking in flavor. Second time round I tried 170f/76c water with longer steep times and bingo. I found nearly no veggie astringency but only this nice light sweet floral flavor that was so delicious! If you love any type of green tea or green oolong then I can't reccomend this tea enough because it is one you can truly experiment with to pull out multiple flavors!
