This bundle includes three 25g bags of Laoshan tea for 75g total (15 sessions)
October is an exciting time in Laoshan – the Autumn harvests are here! Imagine the rocky mountain slopes of Laoshan, baked in the summer sun, finally catching the cool ocean breeze with the fast-changing temperature, and the crisp aroma of leaves turning across the Laoshan National Forest preserve. The teas picked in the perfect window of autumn have the “texture” of autumn; they embody that crisp clean air and the rocky slopes of Laoshan.
The He Family has been looking forward to October’s extra-specialTea of the Month Club box for months, working with us to make sure they could produce enough of these never-before featured special-grade pickings. After a long summer, there is a small window for autumn picking where the tea plant puts out delicate buds again with the sweetness of spring but the complexity of a plant that has fought the elements all summer and survived.
For October’s club box, the He Family is sharing their precious first pickings of the autumn season, the delicate buds available in such small quantities that we’ve never been able to feature them before. This year’s tea is especially precious because rainfall was so scarce through the summer that the yields are all much lower than usual, but much sweeter and richer for the slower growth.
