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.
Classic Laoshan Bilochun is picked after the He Family removes the protective greenhouse coverings from their tea at the end of the cold season. This season’s bitter cold winter and sudden summer heat drastically shortened the harvest season and brought about the lowest yield in a generation, but the result is one of the sweetest, richest pickings ever. The hand-twisting and slow finishing process of bilochun is Mr. He’s personal favorite, making this his own daily go-to tea. Hand-processing brings out even thicker texture and sweeter creamier flavors than classic Laoshan Green.
