Liu An Gua Pian Green Tea from Teavivre

Tea Information: Leaf Type: Green Where to Buy: Teavivre  Tea Description: A great find for those looking for a more green tea with more character!  Like several of our other teas, Liu’an Guapian is deservedly in the list of China’s top ten teas.  Made only from larger, mature leaves that are rolled up during processing, the dry leaves have a distinctively plump shape to them – giving rise to its Chinese name of “melon seeds”.  Very uncharacteristic for a green tea, it has a quite sweet taste and strong aroma, that is also overlaid with an almost smoky, spicy tang.
