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 is the highest grade Laoshan Black tea that the He Family produced in 2020. Laoshan Gongfu Black is one of the most difficult finishes for the He Family, requiring flat-pressing and hand-twisting and curling to achieve the final shape and finish. Mr. He saves this technique for his finest spring harvests, and this year, the He Family has reserve a small harvest of a very special grade of Laoshan Gongfu Black, picked as soon as the green house coverings were removed this year.
