About Anji White Tea (An Ji Bai Cha) 2023

Anji White Tea is produced in Anji County, Hu Zhou City in Zhejiang Province. It does not actually belong to Chinese white tea, instead, it is a kind of Chinese green tea. That's because Chinese tea is classified by its processing method, and Anji White tea is produced using the same processing method as green tea. People call it as white tea is because Anji White Tea is a special species and in early spring, when the temperature is extremely low, the sprouting tea buds of Anji White tea are jade white. The colour of the tea buds will turn into green just like the normal tea leaves after a month.

Our Anji White Tea is picked before Pure Brightness (Apr.4th, 5th, or 6th), as a result, belonging to ‘Mingqian tea'. The taste of this tea is extraordinarily fresh and tender just like tasting the early spring. It also has very attractive orchids aroma with long-lasting sweet aftertaste without any bitterness.

Picking & Production

Picking Tea

Our Anji White tea is ‘Mingqian’ tea. Mingqian tea refers to the tea plucked before The Pure Brightness (April 4th, 5th, or 6th). Tea workers only pick the tea tree buds that just emerged in spring. The tea picked during this period is the tenderest with a touch of scent. Since the slow growth, the Mingqian tea is made of nearly 100% of the most tender buds. Our Anji white tea is made by one bud with one leaf. Due to the low temperature before The Pure Brightness, the number of tea buds is very limited, and the growth rate is quite low, hence the yield of tea under the strict picking standard is very small. As a result, there is a saying goes ‘Mingqian teas are as expensive as gold’.

After a whole year, the tea tree has accumulated sufficient nutrients which makes the tea buds fat and strong and the nutrient substance is rich. For Anji white tea, the content of free amino acids, proteins and other nutrients are abundant which makes the taste of it much more delicious.

Nutrient Content

According to the research, Anji White tea contains various vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E K and almost all B vitamins. It also has plenty of trace elements includes phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc and manganese. The secret for its freshness and sweetness without any bitterness is that it contains 18 different types of amino acids. And the total amount of these amino acids can reach from 5% to 10.6% which is 3 or 4 times higher than a normal green tea.

The amount of L-theanine reaches 5%, tea polyphenols reach 15.4%, catechins reaches 13%, purine base reaches 2.8%, selenium reaches 0.2mg/kg, zinc reaches 54.5mg/kg, and the selenium content is significantly higher than other teas.

    When I heard this was actually a green tea, I just had to try it! If you’re a white tea lover, I think you’ll definitely like this. It has a similar lightness and sweetness on the palate but has the added herbaceousness of the green tea varieties.
