Commercial Description

One of the ten famous teas in China, Lu An Gua Pian originates from Anhui province. The deep green, long, curled leaves smell sweet and fresh. Once steeped, they yield a light yellow colored cup with delicate vegetal notes and a roasted seed-like quality reminiscent of toasted pumpkin seeds.

Brewing Instructions: (from Adagio Teas)

Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

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 melon (specifically faint honeydew) and cucumber. This transitions to grass and artichoke, and then it finishes out with sweet sesame seeds and honey. The mouthfeel is very smooth, a midway between creamy and silky, I am really fond of the mouthfeel, it matches the refreshing taste of the tea.
