    The He Family is continuing their tradition this year of wild-foraging caffeine-free native Laoshan herbs. While many of the He Family's herbal teas are finished using their expertise at green tea processing in ordr finish the leaves like a traditional green tea, this tiny batch experimental herbal tea was finished with a higher roast than the rest of the spring 2020 Mulbrry leaf harvest. The Shandong native Lu mulberry leaf is normally be simply air-dried for use in medicinal tea, but the He Family has applied withering, heat-fixing, curling and tumble-drying with a higher roast in order to bring out richness and subtle flavor through their craft. We are excited to share the He Family's herbal teas this season, and to offer a look at the flavor of Laoshan from another plant entirely different from camellia sinensis!
