Lu'An Melon Slice:

Lu'An melon slice is the literal translation for "Lu An Gua Pian".Lu'An melon slice is in lamellar shape that resembling the seeds of sunflower, hence named "melon seeds slice". The name "melon seeds slice" is now simplified as "melon slice".

The original producing area for Lu'An melon slice is not Lu'An county,but QiTouShan mountain which located in Jianzhai county. At present, Lu'An county has developed as the biggest producting area for Lu'An melon slice,while the best Lu'An melon slice still from Jianzhai county.

The fresh tea leaves picked to produce Lu'An melon slice are much different from that for other famous teas. After plucking one bud with two/three leaves from the tea plant, the producers separate the full-blown leaves from the tender leaves in time.Following that, both leaf tip and stalk are cutted from the full-blown leaves. So each single leaf of Lu'An melon slice is without bud and stalk. Lu'An melon slice is curled at leaf edge and rich green in color with white frost on the surface. The aroma is fresh,high and long lasting. The taste is mellow and refreshing.

PS: The full-blown leaves are used to produce melon slice. At the same time, the separated tender leaves and buds are excellent to produce another famous tea "Emerald Eyebrow". Because of the close relation between Lu'An melon slice and "Emerald Eyebrow",we also call melon slice as "Emerald petal"
