The leaves of this green tea aren't particularly big but they make 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 leads 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 who like lighter oxidized teas.
