2011 Anji Baicha Grade AAA
There are more than 700 famous green teas in China – how many do you know?
You may have heard of the so-called Ten Famous Chinese Teas, but this list was drawn up in the 1950s, it only highlights the superstars. Below the surface, there are hundreds of excellent green teas still in commercial production, waiting to be discovered by me and you!
Of course, only the best of the best makes it to the Superstars. A superstar needs to stand the test of time. It is no wonder that all of the Famous Ten are at least 100 years old.
Now you ask yourself this question: What happens if the list of Famous Ten is redrawn today? Would there be any changes?
The answer is a definitive yes. Almost certainly you would see Anji Baicha being included.
Anji refers to the place where she is grown: Anji county of Zhejiang province. The word baicha means white tea.
