Pioneers and community leaders in Laoshan Village, the He family is one of the first to plant tea on the misty ocean-facing slopes of the Taoist Holy Mountain they call home.
Mr. He finds that the labor intensive process of hand-twisting Laoshan Bilochun brings out the best balance of sweet aromatics and thick mouthfeel of any processing style, making this his favorite green tea. Bilochun processing brings out the rich, crisp flavor of fresh autumn harvest tea, picked as the temperature drops after the tea plants have rested through the warmer summer.
