Cultivar: Bai ye yi hao (White leaf number one)
Harvest: beginning of April
Anji baicha is an early spring green tea originating from the city of Anji in Zhejiang Province. The cultivar Bai ye yi hao (White leaf number one) has albino blooms of pale green leaves in early spring. That’s why this tea is called “White tea from Anji”. In this phase of flowering, there are many amino acids in the leaf, which gradually decrease during the later greening of the leaves.
