Wuyi Rock Tea - Bai Ji Guan

Our Bai Ji Guan Wu Yi Rock tea is wonderfully complex revealing a subtle balance between the signature mineral like character of Wuyi Oolongs that starts with a floral sweetness that, in later infusions, transforms into a more unique longan fruit fruity character. The infusion is light yellow in colour and has a soft chocolaty aroma with a few high notes of citrusy mushrooms. After a rinse, the leaves smell like the tea sits between a green Oolong and a dark Oolong.  

Bai Ji Guan is a classic Wu Yi varietal that originates from the ‘Bat Cave’ (unfortunately, no Caped Crusader resides there) that is located deep within the Wu Yi Mountains. First recorded in the Ming Dynasty it was given this name because the tops of the bushes have a bright yellow-green appearance that, in strong sunlight, appear almost white in colour (‘Bai’ means white in Chinese).
