Lu'an Gua Pian BIO
Tasting our Lu'an Gua Pian is the pleasant experience of a full, brisk green tea, with a delicate velvety texture.
Most first-grade green teas are plucked when the leaves are still buds or did just open. For Luan Gua Pian the buds are not picked. Spread leaves are selected instead.
The leaves of Luan Gua Pian have a dull, grayish colour. They are rolled up along the thin stem, resulting in a slender shape.
After plucking, the leaves are briefly wok-roasted to stop oxidation and cool down overnight. The next day, they are baked two or three times to dry completely.
