This herbal tea is foraged from Laoshan's wild Ziziphus Jujuba trees, carefully hand-finished and oxidized by the He Family with a technique similar to their classic Laoshan black tea.
This 2017 harvest is a world-premiere! Like Gan Zao Ye, this experimental herbal-tisane is made from wild Laoshan-native Jujube trees, harvested on the mountain slopes and then allowed to oxidize in the sun before being finished using a technique inspired by Laoshan Black. These caffeine-free leaves are thinner than tea leaves, so they lose their moisture faster while oxidizing. This makes for a unique partially oxidized flavor with greener notes that shine through in later steepings.
