Fresh From Origin
Long considered one of the ten famous teas in China, Lu An Gua Pian is named for its melon slice shaped leaves. Traditionally, the large second tea leaf is used and the ends are trimmed and withered. The leaves are then slowly pan-roasted to create a smooth, sweet nut-like character. A legendary favorite tea of emperors and dignitaries.
