The aroma of the leaves is a delicate blend of green beans and sesame seeds with a touch of spicebush flowers and hyacinth. There is also a tiny hint of chestnut at the finish, the aroma notes are not the strongest, but they are pleasant in their delicateness.

The taste is refreshing, it starts with a blend of melo...

Liu An Gua Pian Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Anhui, China

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

The aroma is quite vegetal and also quite nutty, with note of green beans, spinach, chestnut, sweet sesame seed paste (Halva for those who enjoy Middle Eastern desserts) and a very delicate finish of toast. It manages to be sweet and vegetal without the clashing, in fact sniffing this tea makes me a bit hungry.

Liu An Gua Pian Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Anhui, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

Truly a fantastic green tea, much better than any other liu an gua pian that I have tried. The dry leaves have a beautiful aroma and unfurl gently to release their emerald brew. Sweet, rich and releasing different flavors with each steeping.

I used a small glass gaiwan to brew so I could watch the leaves, and did a ...

Liu An Gua Pian Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Anhui, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 25th, 2013

Now this was more my type of green tea! While not my favorite, I thought it was much better than the last Teavivre green I had, Nonpareil Te Gong Huang Shan Mao Feng.

Brewing a light green color, this tea was smooth and subtly flavored. I thought it tasted great both as a hot and cold tea.

Liu An Gua Pian Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Anhui, China

91 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 3rd, 2013

I'm starting to think I really like this type of green tea. The first sample of it, from Upton, I liked very much, and this one I like even better.

The dry leaf has a strong and very pleasant aroma, one I'd describe as earthy and herbaceous, and suggestive of sweetness.

This has a richer and bolder flavor than m...

Aroma is predominantly grassy, more grassy than any other green tea--drinking it conjures up images of being out in my yard, digging around in the grass. There are some interesting floral tones. Flavor is rather muted; most teas with similar aromas are a bit more sour, astringent, and brisk, but this tea mainly leave...

2010 Spring Handmade Premium Liu An Gua Pian from JK Tea Shop

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Anhui, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

This is a good tea, but it is picky about its parameters. One really has to watch this tea while it is brewing. The flavor is good even on latter infusions though, and endurance for a green tea is a good thing! Definitely be carful with this one though to get the desired flavor profile and strength.
