Mr. He personally hand twists and finished each leaf in this labor-intensive early-spring bilochun style. Laoshan spring comes much later than southern China, so these early May harvests are picked under cool weather and light sun exposure without their winter greenhouse coverings for sweet and rich flavor. The nuance of the bilochun processing style brings out the subtle minerality of the Laoshan microclimate.
