From our SpecialTEA selection the 2021 Yu Qian Anji Bai Cha (locally known as Shi Nuren) faced a difficult growing season with cooler than usual spring temperatures. The result is some yellow leaves in the plucking that would normally be considered a flaw, but the mild yet complex cup compensates for this quite nicely. It also features a silky texture, with notes of delicate lily, sweet grass, and traces of lychee fruit. It remains a beautiful tea for those who want the experience of a green tea without the sharp grassiness found in other styles.
