Liu An Gua Pian (25g)
Organic Green Tea
Originally this tea was called Gua Zi Pain or "sunflower seed" because of its shape. Over the years, the name has been shortened to Gua Pian, causing some to mistakenly call this tea "melon seed". By either name, this is a special tea for its harvesting and processing techniques. The deep green long leaves are thin and soft, creating a rich flavor without bitterness. Our Liu An Gua Pian is handmade in the traditional way, not made by machine. The tea has a clean bright green color, complex floral aroma and a long finish.
