Anji Bai Cha

Product code: CSTV-1
Add to my notebook

Anji Bai Cha is a treasure of refinement visible in the sight of its beautiful threadlike leaves, resembling pine needles. In the infusion they blossom to provide a liquor of a translucent jade hue. On the palate, sweet and tangy flavors are enhanced by vegetal notes (bok choy), gourmet (pine nuts, butter) and flowers. A tasty tea with a sublime and delicate finish.

Gyokuro Shuin

This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region. Three weeks before the manual harvest, the tea bushes are covered and up to 85% of the sun's rays are filtered out to help create what the Japanese refer to as the "taste of the shade". The result is a highly aromatic and complex tasting tea that contains very little tannins.
