The Liang family produced this Lao Shan black from the small-leaf Long Jing #43 cultivar, typical of Dragonwell. On their farm in Shandong, one of the northernmost reaches of tea production in China, greenhouses are employed in winter to protect the plants from frost. This lot was handpicked from first flush growth in April. Sharing a latitude similar to South Korea and Japan, grown at a lower elevation and similarly exposed to sea air, the Lao Shan bears resemblance to other black teas produced in the greater region. This garden is maintained without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Warming, toasty and sweet.
