    Bai Ji Guan is a traditional Chinese tea part of the Si Da Ming Cong which happens to be a light Wuyi Oolong tea. It is also sometimes referred to as the White Rooster Crest or White Cockscomb. Bai ji guan tea bushes have recently become one of the top five Wu Yi tea bushes found in China.


    The taste of this Bai Ji Guan tea is wonderfully complex. At the beginning it comes off a little sweet with a uniquely fruity taste and a toasty honeyed aroma. It proceeds to finish off with a lingering honey and mellow fruity note.

    Bai Ji Guan is a traditional Chinese tea part of the Si Da Ming Cong which happens to be a light Wuyi Oolong tea. It is also sometimes referred to as the White Rooster Crest or White Cockscomb. Bai ji guan tea bushes have recently become one of the top five Wu Yi tea bushes found in China. It is also one of the rarest and hardest to come across. This is largely due to the fact that its production usually requires large amounts of skill that unfortunately not many tea masters out there possess. Due to its tea tree variety reason, it is really hard to make good taste Bai Ji Guan, as it requires extremely high making-techniques to process this tea to get good aroma & taste. If the tea-makers skill is not so experienced & good, then the whole batch of tea will become rubbish.  Hence, there is not so many tea-makers process this tea; that is why it is really hard to source high quality Bai Ji Guan. Our Bai Ji Guan is from Zhengyan area in Wuyishan; carefully-picked one bud with two leaves; this tea enjoys very sweet & soft taste, with a hint of fruity feeling after sipping the tea liquid. Very rare & high quality Bai Ji Guan and is worthy to try. All of our Bai Ji Guan rock tea is baked extremely slowly by charcoal; as the tea breathe under the air, the charcoal aroma will disappear slowly and the tea's original taste and aroma will come out after 2- 3 infusion.

    HISTORY:

    Many believe that this tea got its name from a monk who decided to name it in memory of a rooster that showed so much courage by giving its life protecting its young ones from an eagle attack. This outstanding display of love and courage by the rooster touched the the monk. He decided to bury the rooster and legend has it that it was at that exact burial spot that Bai Ji Guan bush first came to life. This tea has been very popular since the early days of the Ming Dynasty. The Wu Yi Mountain monks believed that this tea was a poison antidote and once used it to heal the sick child of one of China's prominent officials. This tea was made a regular tribute tea by the Emperor shortly after that.

    TASTE:

    The taste of this tea is wonderfully complex. At the beginning it comes off a little sweet with a uniquely fruity taste and a toasty honeyed aroma. It proceeds to finish off with a lingering honey and mellow fruity note. This very unique tea bush from the Wu Yi Mountains also contains a hint of chocolate maltyness, a light keemum flavor and a slight peachy after note. It happens to have an extremely delicate after taste and its sweetness is similar to that found in English coffee.
