Laoshan Green (2021 New Tea)


Laoshan Green is the Northernmost tea from China. Our Laoshan Green is grown in tea gardens near the ocean. This is a rare coastal tea, also called “Cloud and Mist Tea.” 

The color of our Laoshan Green’s dry leaves varies from grass green to dark green. When brewed, the liquor is a pale yellowish-green color.

Laoshan Green is considered one of the most classical Chinese green teas with a sweet, mellow, umami taste and can be brewed multiple times. It is famous for its green bean flavor and toasted corn aroma with a hint of sweetness.

Origin: Tsingtao City, Shandong Province, China

Brewing Tips:

  • 158°F ~ 176°F (70°C ~ 80°C)
  • It is recommended to brew Laoshan Green tea in a Gaiwan, glass, or porcelain pot


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.

    I also got this Laoshan Green from Hence too. I like the special umami taste.

    Loved this tea! One of those green teas that just tastes sooo green. Umami, sweet, vegetal, and a great liquor color.

    I REALLY like this green tea. At 178F, it tastes like garden greens sautéed in butter—buttery, vegetal, a sweet note and a refreshing bitter note. When I steeped it at 170F, it kept those buttery greens and added a lovely nutty flavor. At 158F, the nutty flavor was more robust, the buttered greens stayed, and the bitter was muted but still there to add complexity. I thought it was delicious each way. I can imagine adjusting the temperature to fit my mood! It was also very good for a second steep for 1.5 minutes. (I received this tea for free, with no obligation to post unless I sincerely enjoyed it, which I did.)
