Liu’an Gua Pian – Water Melon Seeds from Liu’an

Categories: , ,

This tea’s unusual appearance and its rank among the five most celebrated teas of China led us to an interest in this representative of the tea production of the Anhui province. We found that we were also taken by its unusually fresh grassy flavour, and so it won itself a place as another ambassador of the Middle Kingdom on the Dobrá Tea-Room menu.

$6.00 per ounce

Preparation

Put 5-7g (1 tea scoop) of the tea in a heated pot and pour on water at a temperature of around 80°C (175 F). For subsequent infusions (a total of 2 – 3) gradually increase the temperature of the water.
