It looks absolutely amazing, bright green leaves and yellow tones with long fine needle like form. Lush tones of a yellowish green once brewed with a delicate light yellow colour to the cup boasting sweet savoury notes and super fresh perfumes. Such an exquisitely fresh and clean flavour with a soft lingering sweetness.

This tea is often classified as either green tea or white tea as it sits somewhere between the two. Cultivated near the Hangzhou area, this is a rare tea thats carefully hand processed using traditional methods. It has a very short spring harvest time of approximately just 30 days before the leaves begin to green more so. Harvested in Spring from tea bushes grown at around 1200m elevation using a tea cultivar of which shares its name.

The origins of the teas 'mother' plant were set down in an ancient text around 900 years ago concerning a white/jade leafed tea bush. It was thought of as just a legend until the early 80s, when a white bush was found in Anji County, experts believe this was indeed the aforementioned tea plant and started cultivation.
Anji Bai Cha is a traditional gift tea and is given on special occasions in China.
