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.
Three years ago, Mr. He decided to experiment with his hand-twisting and rolling technique developed for Pine Needle Green in making a Wuyi Gongfu Black style tea true to Laoshan. The He Family has been so happy with the results and international response that they had to make Laoshan Gongfu Black for a another season! The delicate treatment lets this tea yield many infusions and brings out the roasted marshmallow and s'mores quality of fine Laoshan Black. Hand processing extends the sweetness and aftertaste of traditional Laoshan black for a subtle, well-balanced taste experience.
