Shandong, China is the most northerly tea-producing province.
During the warmer part of the year, from spring to autumn, some farmers protect their bushes by creating tunnels of light tarpaulin over them to shade them from the sun’s glare. The shade ensures that the leaves develop high levels of L-theanine amino acid and chlorophyll, thereby yielding liquor that is sweet, mellow, and umami with chestnut notes. Spring teas are delicate while summer teas are surprisingly thick, velvety, and full of flavor.
Laoshan (Mount Lao) is located on the southeastern coastline of Shandong Province. The mountain is regarded as one of the “cradles of Taoism” and presents great harmony co-existing with the East China Sea. The beautiful scenery and cultural history make Laoshan a popular tourist destination.
