    This tea is the He Family's answer to the challenge that oolong is only for southern China. Despite Laoshan Village only having fifty years of tea cultivation and oolong being the most technically demanding kind of tea in the world to produce, Mr. He comes through brilliantly. The careful kneading and rolling brings out a beautiful, pure expression of the minerality of the soil and the water. This tea is processed without a roast for a true green flavor of Laoshan.


  • 'The success of the He Family with both Laoshan Roasted Oolong and Laoshan Green Oolong inspire, and can serve as catalyst for experimentation in villages across China, and ultimately, the herald of higher quality tea for years to come.'
