Gan Zao Ye (Wild Jujube) is a naturally caffeine-free herbal tea that grows unmanaged and wild on the slopes of Laoshan. The He family forages a limited quantity each spring and hand-processes it just like a traditional green tea with withering, firing and curling. The final result is packed with just as much flavor complexity (and antioxidants) as a traditional tea.

As the tea steeps out it shows off complex notes of goji berry, coconut, eucalyptus, and cardamom. The aftertaste is supremely sweet, cooling and refreshing.
