A mild winter and cool spring has made for a stunning early harvest of delicate buds and leaves from the He Family’s ocean-facing plot at the foot of the Laoshan mountains. These sweet delicate buds are fed by limestone-filtered mountain spring water and shaded by mist. The reserve Da Tian harvest is picked shortly after the winter greenhouse coverings are removed when the leaves are still sweet and packed with deep minerality.

Mr. He also recommends


" Thankfully 2019-2020 was a mild winter compared to the last two years, meaning that the plants in China’s northernmost tea growing region did not suffer frost damage. The He Family's plants have been able to recover, and this new recovery growth has been rich and tender, a boon for the He Family after so many difficult years.... "
