Why would a tea be called "white tea", when it is in fact green?

Anji Baicha, or literally translating, "Anji White Tea" is one of the most famous green teas of China, originating from Anji County in Zhejiang Province. The tea tree cultivar used in the making of this tea has unusually pale, white-ish leaves pre-processing, hence its suprising name.

This is one of the more easy-going green teas when it comes to brewing, tolerating longer steep times and higher temperature very well. The tea brew is pale in color, and very complex on the palate, especially for a green tea. Fresh greens, asparagus and spinach come to mind when drinking this fresh and balanced tea. The tea was harvested from buds and young leaves in early spring of 2020.

Our brewing recommendations:


  • Porcelain or ceramic gaiwan or teapot of 100-200ml capacity;

  • Spring water or purified water at 80-85°C temperature;

  • Gongfu-style brewing with about 6-8 gramms of tea leaves;

  • Up to 6 infusions at 10-20 seconds per steep.
