DESCRIPTION

Also known as Lu'an Melon Seed tea, this famous green tea comes from Lu An county of Anhui province of China. Our 2023 batch is fully hand crafted. 

It is called melon seed tea because the shape of tea leaves are supposed to recall seeds of melon. This tea is repeatedly baked during the processing, making it one of the most laborious green teas to manufacture. 

DRY  TEA: Long elongated lightly rolled leaves with sweet earthy notes. Lu An Gua Pian green tea is made from the single true leaf below the budset, which calls for careful plucking. 

WET LEAVES: Leaves turn olive green with a nose of floral, citrus and sweet grass.

CUP: Floral and grassy notes in the aroma. The deep straw colored cup is soft and smooth. Hints of green mangoes, citrus, touch grassy. A lingering sweet finish. Refreshing.
