Mr. He finds that the labor intensive process of hand-twisting Laoshan Bilochun brings out the best balance of sweet aromatics and thick mouthfeel of any processing style, making this his favorite green tea. In addition the delicate processing preserves the natural beauty of the delicate spring leaves and buds that Mrs. He picks. Bilochun is respected throughout China, and the He family hopes that this painstaking process brings their village more recognition across the world.
