    Mr. He is always innovating, trying to find the best techniques to bring out the unique terroir of his land. This flat-pressed processing changes the flavor, the appearance in the cup and the way the tea steeps out over time. Crafting this tea is done entirely by hand, pressing all the leaves flat over hours for each tiny three to four pound batch. The processing allows the flavor of Laoshan's mineral-rich spring water and rocky soil to really come forward.


  • '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.'
