DESCRIPTION

Also known as Lu'an Melon Seed tea, this famous green tea comes from Lu An county of Anhui province of China. Our summer 2020 batch comes with floral notes, hint of citrus and a mellow sweetness.

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.

  1 tbsp for a 8 oz cup

  160-170°F

The best green!

This is my favorite green tea - light, fresh, and earthy. I always make sure to keep some in stock at home

questionable shipping charge?

My tea arrived within a few days of the order and was packaged as I requested. Excellent service. The only disappointment is the shipping charge. It states on the website that orders over 65 dollars ship free. My order was over 100 dollars and I was charged with shipping. I did use my bonus points and the order was still over 65 dollars. After speaking over the phone to an associate, it sounds like you can use free shipping or bonus points but not both.

One of my favorite teas

This is one of my favorite teas. It is a wonderful green tea that is more sweet and not too grassy. If you want a more mellow, less grassy green tea, I highly recommend.
