This harvest is picked in the cool autumn air after resting the plant through summer. The result is crisp, fresh flavor with more savory green bean and cream that Laoshan for which Laoshan is famous. 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 including growing rows of soybean between rows of tea to restore nitrates to the soil. The extreme northern climate means cold winters and short growing seasons, but the He Family perseveres, protecting their tea in greenhouses over the winter. The result is a deeply sweet and delicate green tea unlike any other in the world.
'Mr. He is the head of his family and his tea farm. Mr. He remembers a time when his parents still grew potatoes and corn, before tea farming became widespread in Laoshan. In recent years, he’s overseen the development of Laoshan Black, flat-pressed “Dragonwell Style” Laoshan Green, and even two kinds of Laoshan Oolong.'
