Pioneers and community leaders in Laoshan Village, the He family was one of the first to plant tea on the misty ocean-facing slopes of the Taoist Holy Mountain they call home.
This early spring harvest from the He Family is the exciting first harvest of the year picked after the protective cold-weather greenhouse coverings are removed (Da Tian Harvest). The exposure to sunlight makes for a bright rich vibrant flavor- one of Mr. He’s favorites of the year. The cooler air the tea is exposed to without greenhouse covering helps balance the increased sunlight for rich, sweet, late-April harvests.
