    DescriptionRating & ReviewBrewing GuideRecommendations
    An Ji Bai Cha, or An Ji White Tea (in English) is so named because its unprocessed tea leaves are almost completely white in color. The tea itself is actually a green tea. There was a legend recorded in an ancient 900-year old Chinese book called Da Guan Cha Lun about a tea plant with jade white leaves. It remained a legend until 1980s, when a single white tea bush (now known as the Ancestor of Bai Cha) was found in An Ji County (Zhejiang province, China), and experts believe that this was the tea plant that was mentioned in the book. It was soon cultivated for commercial purposes An Ji Bai Cha is one of the teas processed from the leaves picked from these tea plants. The picking season is very short, around 30 days in early spring season as once the temperature increases, the leaves would start to turn green.

    Research found that the tea plant has low chlorophyll and polyphenols content (which explains the whitish-green tea leaves) but is very rich in amino acids. It has almost twice the amount comparing to other green teas. Amino acid helps suppress cortisol and reduces stress.

    An Ji Bai Cha harvest area is now a protected. Only the leaves picked within destinated area can be considered as An Ji Bai Cha. To ensure its authenticity, we will provide a coded anti-fake label issued by Local An Ji Bai Cha Tea Association. (for 100 grams and above only).
