The He Family's classic spinrg harvest is picked in May, as soon as the fields' protective greenhouse winter coverings are removed for the year. The result is rich, fresh flavor full of Laoshan's famous sweet vegetal-savory soy bean flavor aroma. The He family's signature green tea is fed by mountain spring water, picked by hand, and cultivated sustainably using traditional chemical-free farming techniques. The mature plants that survived last years harsh winter and early spring bring a super sweet and unique mineral quality to this 2017 spring harvest.
