Anji bai cha
|Anji Bai Cha|
|Other names||Anji white tea,安吉白茶|
|Origin||Anji County, Zhejiang Province, China|
|Quick description||Rare, large-leafed green tea|
This tea cultivar was discovered in 1982, is not as widely planted as other teas and has a short harvesting period; it is a comparatively rare tea.
Further Research found that the tea plant has low chlorophyll and poly-phenol content (which explains the whitish-green tea leaves) but is very rich in amino acids. It has almost twice the amount comparing to other green teas. Amino acid helps suppress cortisol and reduces stress.
