An Ji Bai Cha or "An Ji White Tea" isn't really a white tea, but for a short period of time in the spring when the air is cool the bushes's leaves flush a really pale light green. During this time, the leaves 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.
An Ji Bai Cha is truly a beautiful and delicious spring green. The plucking standard is exquisite (a perfect two leaves and a bud pick) with a perfect production giving us a long, leafy, showy dry leaves. The liquor itself is mellow and thick with a starchy, vegetal quality and no bitterness. Highly recommended.
