The leaves of this green tea aren't particularly big but it is a great smooth and floral everyday green tea. The name comes from the rather rare cultivar, Big Leaf Oolong, that is only grown on the east side of Taiwan. The fresh cut grass start leading to a clear sweet mid mouth before finishing up with the beautiful 'green' floral of the Big Leaf Oolong cultivar, you have to push it a long time before any bitterness arrives. Overall a great, clean, easy-to-brew green daily drinker for those that like lighter oxidized teas.
