    Gan Zao Ye is wild-foraged Laoshan Jujube leaf, hand picked and carefully hand finished using the painstaking withering, fixing, curling and drying process that the He family reserves for their early spring Laoshan Green. The classic spring harvest is sweet and creamy, with a delicious hint of toasted rice or barley. This herbal tisane is naturally caffeine-free.


  • 'When we tried Mr. He’s Laoshan Gan Zao Ye, we were blown away. It had the flavor complexity of any incredible green tea with deep lingering sweetness, rich malt tones and a barley flavor all its own. The character of the finished tea felt like an extremely true expression of Laoshan, and the He Family’s values despite coming from an entirely different species of plant'
