Liu An Gua Pian is one of the best Green tea to come from Liu An County in An Hui province of China. This is no small feat considering An Hui is renowned for producing a variety of high quality green teas since the Tang Dynasty. It is also a China's Ten Famous tea and was winner of the China Tea Award in 1982 and China Food and Drink Award in 1988 for its superior refreshing taste and quality. Gua Pian is unique because it is processed using only the leaf part (without the bud). The history of Liu An Gua Pian dates back to the Tang Dynasty, where records where found in Liu Yu's Cha Jing (first ever book on tea) describing it as a "Superior Tea", and it was also a tribute tea in the Ming Dynasty. Liu An Gua Pian is said to be able to help improves vision and relief sleep disorder.

Other names:

Liu An Melon Seed


The floral taste and aftertaste of a strong cup of Liu An Gua Pian is a reminiscence of Tie Guan Yin tea. The pleasant floral sweetness of this tea gradually fills your mouth. Very refreshing and smooth.


Unlike other premium quality Chinse green teas, Liu An Gua Pian is made only using the tea leaves and no buds at all (similar to Japanese green tea). The emerald-green dried tea leaves are long and narrow.


Liu An, An Hui Province, China

Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 75°c (158°F) to 85°c (176°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can use glass-based or porcelain tea ware.

Clearly a very good Lu An Gua Pian, especially for an organic one. Very fresh. Nice leaves

This has become one of my favorites, and for the price I'm very pleased to have it as an everyday tea. It has a wonderfully full and sweet body with a silky smooth mouth feel that you don't usually get outside of the Taiwan high-mountain wu longs. The taste and aroma have a sweet grassiness that is unlike any of the other green teas I've had, and has a nice and lasting finish. The only downside is that you have to pay attention to not over-brew it. It can be a little temperamental sometimes, and can acquire a penetrating bitterness if over-brewed, but it's not too hard as long as you pay attention to time.

Better and not as muddy as another Lu An Gua Pian I've tried. Don't know if I agree with its inclusion in the Ten Famous Tea, but perhaps that'll change in time. Good for everyday drinking.

Let me be clear... I am no green tea expert and I typically drink Oolong and Puerh's. This tea seemed of good quality with nothing about it that seemed "wrong". Balanced flavours and easy to drink. To my inexperienced green tea taste buds it was a pleasant green tea and I enjoyed a robust element that many greens don't have for me. I've tried a few greens now but nothing has grabbed me like Oolongs and good puerhs do. This is no exception. Lovers of green tea should probably ignore my comments!

I am too lazy to right reviews but I have to say that this Lu An Gua Pian is much more better than I purchased last time on Ebay.

One of my favorite teas. It's not too strong. Hits the tongue just right. Serves as a great wake up in the morning.

Can be a bit tricky to brew, but still, compared to the other Lu An Gua Pian, I find the normal Lu An Gua Pian more favorable than this one. It just wasn't that sensational to me.

This tea is fascinating. Though it is among the most expensive tea I've ever purchased.

This has been one of my favorite teas over the last couple of years. It has a light, sweet vegetal flavor. The flowery aroma is similar to greenish Tie Guan Yin, though it's a bit milder. Slightly nutty taste, but not grassy. Easy to brew (rarely gets bitter) and an excellent value.

Very reliable, dark green, vegetal, round cup. Good on a cold day. Can't go wrong with ChineseTeaArts Lu An Gua Pian - it tases as good as others Lu An Gua Pian that's usually more expensive.
