LYCIUM BARBARUMTea Varietal
A member of the Solanaceae family, the caffeine-free Goji berry plant (Lycium barbarum) grows wild across Northern China - including on the slopes of Laoshan in Shandong. Though the plant is most famous for its berries, its dried leaves have been a part of traditional medicine in China for centuries. Early this spring, the He Family foraged young and tender spring goji leaves and carefully finished them just as they would their early spring reserve Laoshan green teas. We are so excited for the opportunity to share this another experimental tea from the He Family!
