The tea comes from Liou-an canton in the mountains of Ta-pie in the west of  An-chuej province. Local farmers reap parts of the tea branches, that they sort afterards to a different classes of tea. From the buds Yin Zhen is made, from the first leaves Zhi Pian is made, from the second leaves Gua Pian is made and from the third leves Mei Pian is made. The tea leaves are dried alternately by high and low temperature, that causes their interesting shape and strong, fresh and sweet taste.
