Big Leaf Oolong, Oolong

 

No, the name is not a typo. This delicate oolong is made from a rare cultivar grown almost exclusively on the East Coast of Taiwan, Big Leaf Oolong. The leaves themselves are not particularly big but bigger than its Qingxin Oolong relative. Often called 'Small Leaf Oolong', Qinxin is more commonly grown on the west side of Taiwan. What makes this cultivar different? A unique floral note that tastes like a green Jasmine flower, and has a lasting aftertaste. Freshly picked in April 2020, this tea is one of the few lower elevation oolongs that are really worth it. This cultivar is more usually made into a Honey Fragrance Black, but the spring pick makes one heck of an oolong!
