Liu An Gua Pian (Melon Slice) (六安瓜片)

Region: Liu An area, Anhui province, China

Other Names: Liu An Gua Pian, Emerald Petals Green Tea, Liu An Melon Seed; Melon Slice, Emerald Tea

The dry tea leaves of our Liu An Gua Pian, with their fresh lasting fragrance, are slightly curled at the leaf edge that some say makes it look like a melon seed. 

When steeped, Melon Slices’ clear, greenish tea liquor has a lasting highly fragrant aroma and a fresh sweet taste. For best taste our tea should be steeped at 185º F/ 85º C and can be infused multiple times by slightly and progressively increasing the steeping time.
