  • Lu'an Melon Seed, also known as Liuan Leaf, is a green tea from Liu'an County in Anhui Province, China. This is a famous Green Tea and is listed on virtually all China Famous Tealists. The literal translation for Liu An Gua Pian Tea is Liu An Melon Seed Tea. Melon Seed Tea's name is derived from the shape of the processed tea leaves, which are flat and oval and resemble a melon seed. Unlike most green teas which utilize the new buds in making tea, Liu An Gua Pian uses the second leaf on the branch. Each leaf's central vein is removed and the leaves are pan fried and shaped to stop oxidizing enzymes and dry the tea.
