An Ji Bai Cha is truly a beautiful and delicious early spring green tea. The leaves are showy, pristinely plucked two leaves and one bud. The liquor is everything you'd expect in a high end early season Chinese green: delicate and ultra smooth with a clearly top shelf depth and evenness of flavor. The liquor reminds one a little bit of buttered fresh garden peas.
The leaves for An Ji Bai Cha are naturally quite pale early in the season and they have a higher than normal amino acid content. This higher amino acid content means that the infusion will be quite sweet and relaxing as the L-theanine content is elevated.
2021 early spring harvest, from Anji County, Zhejiang Province, No agrochemicals were used in the production of this tea.
