An Ji village is situated in the Zhejiang countryside (about 2 to 3 hours from Hangzhou city). The town is also very known for bamboos, and anything you can do with them. They also contribute to the tea's "terroir". In early spring, the weather is often cloudy and the sky almost white. But the sun light is strong enough to make the tender buds grow gently.
Above, you can see the small town of An Ji, with it's chinese typical large streets. The tea gardens all around make a very particular landscape.
Tea in the cup reminds me the tender green of the An Ji tea gardens.
Finally, as tea provides a clear and peaceful mind, you can actually be present in a very conscious way. Drinking this fabulous An Ji Bai Cha makes me feel very focused, calm, and creative. It's really important to try knowing the feelings and sensations that tea can provide. Because tea isn't only about the physical aspects.
If you have the occasion to taste genuine An Ji Bai Cha, don't hesitate (even if the price is quite frightening!). You won't regret this particular experience of perfection in a cup.
