Liuan leaf or Lu'an guapian 六安瓜片

In Chinese the character "六" (six) is usually pronounced "Liù", but in the case of Lu'an City  it is pronounced as "Lù" on account of the local dialect. Many Chinese speaking people call the tea 六安瓜片 by using the liu, Liuan (Chinese: 六安; pinyin: Liù ān).


Liuan leaf is a leaf type green tea with natural twist shape.


Other spellings: Liuan; Luan; Liu'an; Lu'an; melon leaf; guapian.


Note: Lu'an 六安 City, is a city located in Anhui, China, and not to be confused with Luan 灤縣 County, which is a county of Hebei, China.
