Notes:

Harvesting this tea required the pickers to individually pick the 2nd leaf from each young budset, and incredible feat of precision and care. Lu An Gua Pian is literally called “melon slice” because of its subsequent shape. (“Gua Pian” translates this way.)
Wu has hand rolled a tea that is at once buttery as it is floral and spicy. Delicate as it is rich.
