A TINY 2kg batch of the first pickings of the year Anji Bai Cha. This is top-of-the-pile Jade Sword which rarely leaves the shores of China and is usually pre-purchased by a closed group of rich tea connoisseurs.
Anji Bai Cha or Jade Sword is such a famous Chinese Green and highly revered as one of the best teas in the World especially by Green tea aficionados. The problem with having such a BIG name is that the tea tends to have a big price tag and, in its relatively young history of 30 years, Anji Bai Cha has rapidly become one of the most expensive teas on the globe!
There are hundreds of different quality levels for Jade Sword, depending on all of the usual factors such as season, origin and production methods. All of these teas, even the lower quality ones, will hike up the price simply because of this tea's reputation. So we set out to visit Anji farmers to bypass all of the hype, get ahead of all of the private buyers and find the most SUPREME Jade Sword possible to buy for ourselves!
When we found this tea we had to buy some up for our own collection - it is the first pickings of the year made in the heart of Anji and produced with very exacting processes. The taste, like all great Anji Bai Cha, is light, soft and pure yet has unmistakeable sweet aromatics of cotton candy, raspberries and orchids.
We had to pay a big price to fight off the private Chinese buyers and we have secured a miniscule amount to share with our Teahead friends worldwide.
