Lu An Gua Pian

Melon Seeds from Lu An
Product code: CSTV-26

This green tea from Anhui is one of China’s ten most famous teas. Its reputation comes from a very specific plucking, where only mature leaves are taken from the trees and the buds left in place.

Heated in steel woks and flattened with bamboo brushes, the leaves take on a bluish tint that really highlights this great style.

Corn, asparagus, kale… this tea is dominated by vegetable aromas. The absence of buds in the mix gives a thick body bitter at first, but quickly overtaken by sweet notes of grains and roasted nuts.

Definitely worthy of its Grand Cru status.
