Description:
A very famous rarity, which is currently considered one of the best green teas of China. An Ji Bai Cha is a needle-shaped tea (Zhengxingcha) that was roasted in a revolving drum or a shaking machine. This tea is produced by the family of the man who discovered the white-leaved tea bush and they keep the secret of one of the steps in the production (possibly a light rolling) between the roasting in the revolving drums and the shaping in the shaking machine.

The tea is called Bai Cha, white tea, because the leaves are of a pale green, almost white, when plucked, resulting from a very small quantity of chlorophyll in the leaf. However, it is produced in the manner of green tea. These tea plants with the whitish leaves had already been described during the Song-dynasty (960-1279), and were thought to be a myth ever since. At the end of the 20th century, however, a wild tea tree of this kind was (re-?)discovered. Teas from this tea varietal are very smooth and incredibly sweet in aroma. Because of the high degree of a certain amino acid in the tea plant these teas have a pronounced umami-taste.
Character:
A tea that tastes as though freshly washed, beautiful, clear, lemony-fresh and yet sweet and fruity in the finish. A subtle and tasteful tea.

Description:
A needle-shaped green tea in top quality. Luann Guapian, melon slice from Lu An is one of the classic teas of China. It was also known as Gua Zi Pian, pumpkin seed slice. Only the second leaf is used for this tea, the bud and the third leaf are used to make different teas. The leaves are fired in a wok and formed with the aid of a small broom, thus processed into Zhengxingcha, bamboo leaf shaped tea. The leaf of the finished tea is dark green, flat and oblong, hence the name.
Character:
Lush green and delicately tart. An intense, aromatic tea that tigles the palate with its citric freshness.
