This tea is a testament to the craft of the He Family. Picked before Qingming Festival in the He Family's shade-grown fields, this tea is carefully hand pressed by Mr. He one leaf and bud at a time. The flat pressing process brings out more sweetness and a longer aftertaste while making a beautiful presentation in glass cups. The Dragonwell-style finishing is a tribute to the fact that Laoshan tea's ancestor is the Dragonwell varietal Longing Qunti.

" Mr. He's tea plants are all in rotation, getting cut back to the roots every five years. The plants are allowed to rest for two years as they grow, before finally being cultivated for picking again. All the root stock in his fields is over sixty years old, planted by his father, one of the first to grow tea in Laoshan.... "
