Anji Bai Cha (安吉白茶) is a rare and highly prized Chinese green tea, originating from the Anji region in Zhejiang province. Despite its name, which means "Anji white tea", it is actually a green tea. Here are some important characteristics and information about this tea:

Origin and History: Anji Bai Cha is grown mainly in Anji, a mountainous region known for its cool climate and frequent mists, ideal conditions for growing tea. This tea is relatively new, rediscovered in the 1980s. It is produced from a specific cultivar called Bai Ye #1, which gives its leaves a pale, almost white color in early spring.

Leaf Characteristics: The leaves of Anji Bai Cha are long, thin and slightly twisted. They are a light green color, almost translucent when brewed, resulting in a pale liquor. Production Process: Anji Bai Cha is harvested in early spring, often before the Qingming Festival, when the leaves are young and tender. After picking, the leaves undergo a heat-fixing treatment to stop oxidation, followed by rolling and drying at low temperatures to preserve their delicate aromas.

Flavor Profile: Anji Bai Cha is known for its mild, slightly sweet flavor with notes of chestnut and fresh herbs. It offers a light, refreshing mouthfeel with minimal astringency.

Brewing tips: This is a very high-end tea and we strongly recommend respecting the basic dosages as well as using quality water to brew this tea.

Quality water will be very weakly mineralized water. Check the dry residue on the label of the water you wish to use, a value between 20 and 100mg/L will be suitable. That said, this is not an infallible rule, some waters at 130mg/L work well (Volvic) while others below 100mg/L have less good results. Quite famous and inexpensive water is the source of the Grand Barbier which you will find at Carrefour.

Brew small amounts of tea in a small container. The ideal would be a teapot between 20 and 30cl maximum. Place 5 to 8g of leaves for 1 minute of infusion with water at 75 degrees.
