Lu An Gua Pian Green Tea
Lu An Gua Pian, or "Little Melon Seed" tea is an exquisite green tea grown in the Liu'an County of Anhui Province and prepared from the second leaf plucked, without any buds. It is then minimally processed and toasted to give an earthiness similar to a top grade Lung Ching with the hint of floral sweetness common to Ti Kuan Yin Oolongs.
Steep a generously heaping teaspoon in steaming (175 degree) water for 2-3 minutes. Longer for a bit of astringency, or less for a perfectly smooth beverage. Good for multiple infusions.
