    Laoshan Green Oolong takes the beautiful mineral-forward green bean profile of Laoshan Green and gives it an astounding depth and complexity through meticulous labor intensive craftsmanship. Mr. He starts with sweet rich fresh leaves, then kneads and shakes the leaves to bring out rich florals and fruity undertones. Heat locks in the green quality of this tea before it can oxidize, yielding a fresh pure and honest expression of the unique flavor of the region.

    The He Family's special combination of green tea and oolong finishing lock in fresh bright cucumber and sugar snap pea notes, while accentuating deep tingling minerality and building a luscious jasmine and lychee oolong undertone.

  • 'Mr. He and He Qingqing set out to prove that Laoshan is capable of crafting truly fine tea, worthy of respect on the wider world stage. First green tea, then black tea, and now, the real show-stopper: Laoshan oolong tea. Their family's success demonstrates that great tea doesn’t come only from tradition, but rather from a combination of hard work, land stewardship and inspired innovation.'
