This small leaf, tippy green tea was grown by the Liang family in Laoshan Village, which is near Qingdao, in the province of Shandong.

Produced from the Long Jing #43 varietal, the tea plants that supplied the material for this lot are fully covered by a greenhouse in the winter and earliest parts of spring to protect the plants from frost. As the young shoots of the first flush emerge the sides and roof of the greenhouse are removed. 

We taste toasted sunflower seeds and spring vegetables.
