    Tea About

    For Liu'an Guapian, two infusions are ok. First make the tea wet with a little water of 80℃ (boiling water will cause damage to the tea and make it taste bitter), then make the tea. Shaking can make full use of the aroma of tea and make the chemicals in tea fully dissolved into the liquid.

    Tea origin

    According to legend,around 1905, a tea evaluation master from one Tea Company of Liu'an picked the tender tea leaves from the top green tea he collected,discarding the old leaves and tea stems. As a new product, he sold it in the market and made good profits. A local tea company was inspired and discarded the tea stems directly, then fried the old and the tender separately. The color, smell and taste were very good. The tea is just like sunflower seeds, so it is called "slice". Later for being easy to read, it becomes Guapian.
