From the Anhui Province, this tea was first created during the Qing dynasty around 1776. Pumpkin Seed is one of the oldest tribute teas. For this tea, two leaves and a bud are plucked, and then sorted so that the larger 2nd leave is selected. The central vein is cut out. The leaves are pan-fired in small batches, stretched and shaped by hand until the finished tea leaves take the shape of melon seeds.
