Anji Bai Cha is produced in extremely limited quantities in the hills of Anji in Zhejiang Province in China. Its name literally means “Anji White Tea”, referring to the light green colour of the leaves which the Chinese compare to white jade.
The plant itself is very high in amino acids, and many consider it to be one of the healthiest green teas.
