China Green Tea

China is famous for its "Ten Thousand Teas", a poetic number to suggest the abundance of teas produced in China, the majority of which are green. Green tea is consumed throughout the day in China; enjoyed as a social beverage, appreciated as a source of health and offered to guests as a sign of respect.

China green teas are traditionally pan-fried, which prevents the leaves from oxidizing (usually called fermenting), which occurs during the production of black teas. Chinese green teas are known for their subtle and complex flavours and refreshing aromas. They are rich in Vitamin C and generally smoother than black or other green teas. Unlike black teas they can be infused 3-4 times by adding 1 minute to each steeping.

 

An Ji Bai-Pian / 安吉白片  Sorry Out Of Stock

An Ji Bai Pian (White Petals)– An Ji Bai Pian is grown high in the Tian Mu Mountains of An Ji County in Zhejiang Province. “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” was filmed in this spectacular region. The growing conditions are clean and pristine – chemical fertilizers, pesticides are not required – and the soil is sandy, rocky and rich in minerals. It is not a White Tea; the name refers to the “silvery-green” appearance of the unprocessed leaf. This is an ancient tea with references dating back 900 years to the Song and Tang Dynasties. Due to the growing conditions and climate Bai Pian has a much higher L-theanine content than other green teas. The hand-picked bud and tender new leaf release a delicate, fresh, clean and sweet taste when infused. It has been described as “liquid silk”.
