The tempting aroma and sweet aftertaste of honeysuckle is not the only thing you'll be smelling when drinking this tea. The mineral-rich flavor hints at a complexity that ranges from minerally to nearly floral, depending on your readiness to accept its differences in taste between steepings.

Da Ye, translating literally to “big leaf”, is a cultivar of the Phoenix oolong tea family with leaves that are usually very large and dark in color. The name comes from its size - it can grow up to be as big around as your hand! It's also unique because this type has an orchid fragrance that gives off light floral flavors during steeping; perfect for those who love fresh tasting teas without any bitterness or astringency like other types may provide.
