Availability: Out of stock




Considered one of China’s "10 Famous Teas", Liu An Guapian is a hearty green tea with a fresh aroma reminiscent of roasted sunflower seeds, a sweet taste and a hint of smokiness.

Also known as "Melon Seed", the shape of this tea is especially distinctive, resembling a sunflower seed. After picking the bud and two leaves from the plant, the teamaker cuts the bud and any stem from the leaves, creating equal-sized single leaf pieces. These carefully cut leaves are then pan-fired over low heat, creating a tea with bright green colored leaves and a flavor that is rich and full-bodied.
