In this name, Bai Cha meaning “white tea”, does not make this a white tea. It is called white tea due to the early spring harvests having this pale green color. You can see it in the leaf, especially when steeping. Anji county was home to this lost tea tree for hundreds of years, until the 1990s, when it was rediscovered! Now this special tea tree has spread to other regions, including our partner tea gardens in Mei Cheng.
