Anji Bai Cha
Anji Bai Cha has a delicate, soft and relaxing taste, with a sweet light aftertaste.
The color of the leaves - slightly white rather than green - is characteristic of this green tea variety: in Chinese, bai means white. The lack of pigment is due to the low chlorophyll content of the plant.
The leaves are long and thin, but nonetheless maintain their straight shape while drying, thanks in part to the roasting technique used. Upon steeping, the leaf opens and doubles in width, releasing a characteristic cucumber taste and a subtle fruity scent of lychee.
The origin of Anji Bai Cha is protected. Only the tea produced in the certified area of Zhejiang province can be labelled Anji Bai Cha.
