Laoshan black is the most popular and best selling tea among all of our tea partners, and for good reason!
This tea grows on the Taoist holy mountain of Laoshan in the coldest northernmost tea climate in China. Ocean mist naturally shades the tea during the day to keep it sweet and delicate, while rocky soil and mountain spring water bring out deep nuanced flavor. The He Family pioneered organic tea farming in the region and established a cooperative to help tea farmers share resources and finishing techniques.
While Laoshan tea is traditionally finished green, this new style perfected by Mr. He brings out deep chocolate notes with a full oxidation and rich roast.
