Crafted By the He Family

Pioneers and community leaders, the He Family is dedicated to making a name for their stunningly smooth, malty, rich teas cultivated in China’s coldest, northernmost growing region.
 
This herbal tea is foraged from Laoshan's wild Lu mulberry trees, carefully hand-finished by the He Family in their workshop just like their classic Laoshan green teas.

    The He Family is continuing their tradition again this year of wild-foraging caffeine-free native Laoshan herbs and using their expertise at green tea processing to finish the leaves like a traditional green tea. While Shandong native Lu mulberry leaf would normally be simply air-dried for use in medicinal tea, the He Family has applied withering, heat-fixing, curling and tumble-drying to bring out much richer and more subtle flavor through their craft. We are excited to share the He Family's herbal teas once again this spring season, and to offer a look at the flavor of Laoshan from another plant entirely different from camellia sinensis!

  • 'When humans first started drinking real tea, it rocked our word.The tea plant seemed magical. But what if tea is not the only plant out there that does incredible things when finished with craft and brewed up right?'
