    The He Family saves this time-consuming flat-passing technique for their sweetest most delicate harvests of the year. The flat-pressing technique is inspired by Dragonwell green tea hand-crafting, and with the cool-weather precious autumn harvest, Mr. He brings out floral notes and deep herbaceous complexity. The day-long meticulous finishing process is worth it for the beautiful leaves that dance in the cup, and the sweet aromatics .



The He Family also recommends:

  • '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.'
