Anji white tea is a specialty of Anji county and belongs to the category of green tea, based on its production process and the characteristics of the tea leaves. With bright shades of gold and emerald green, the white tea leaves have a long-lasting fragrance and produce a fresh, mellow tea that's rich in amino acids - 3-4 times higher than ordinary green tea - and antioxidants, and with no bitterness.
While Anji white tea harvest times vary with geographical location and temperature, white tea is generally picked from mid-March to early April over a period of about 15-20 days. Enjoy the pastoral mountainscapes as you make your way to the tea garden with its endless fields of white tea. The clusters of trees are neatly arranged with their delicate tea leaves unfurled in brilliant green. Stroll through the fields and the rows of Western-style houses scattered on the hillside with the distant sounds of villagers' laughter and chatter, and bask in the serenity of the fresh air and countryside.
