Although it literally called white tea, it is actually a kind of green tea since it’s white tea leaf buds made out of the green tea processing techniques.
During the harvest season, the tea farmers pluck one bud and two leaves from the tea tree. Spreading the new leaves out for four or five hours then fermenting according to a certain temperature and time. The tea leaves then will be dried to finalize the whole process.

one of my favorites Review by Nina S
Just saw your photos and they reminded me to try brewing anji white tea with a Gaiwan.
It was totally a different experience. Much lighter with a pleasant warm taste and I really enjoyed the floral aspect of it. (Posted on 11/16/2013)

white green tea Review by Rosie
Wow, I like this white green tea. The aroma is so lovely. It tastes sweet with a touch fruity.
It is quite special and different from other green teas.I guess it is because that this tea isn't too grassy. (Posted on 7/20/2013)
