A Beautiful Green Tea! Vegetal notes intermingled with roasted nuts, it’s wonderful. I get two good steepings out of it western style, and use 2 to 3 grams of leaf per 350 to 400 ml water. There is nothing else like a good Lu-an Gua Pian. Beautiful Mouth texture, and 2023’s crop knocked it out of the park!

I usually do this one western style, as Gong Fu will yeild a weak tea. The first infusion will be 3 minutes, giving me a lovely lime green liquor. I’ll usually do the second steeping at 5 minutes to finish it off. It’s quite a forgiving green tea for heavy handed brewing, but I would stick within the 185F to 187F mark with this tea to get the absolute best out of it!
