From Old Ways Tea

You don’t have to be an expert to tell a Bai Jiguan bush apart from the rest in the spring. The new leaves are a much lighter green than any other tea. A quick look at the finished leaves confirms this fact, this tea is quite different than the other Wuyi oolongs.

Fresh slightly vegetal aroma like a green tea. This Bai Jiguan is a bit lower oxidation than our other yancha. The fragrance is largely floral with some straw, almost a dried flower fragrance. The tea is quite smooth and hardly astringent. The tea brews to a straw to slightly orange color.

Note: This tea has been charcoal roast once. When the tea is restocked it will have been roast again, I’ll update the description at that time.

Sipdown and lazy session with this “white Cockscomb” 2020 Bai Jiguanthis afternoon!! I think this is my first time trying this varietal, and it’s really interesting to me. It’s definitely a lighter leaning roast compared to my normal yancha preferences, but the oily soup is coating on the palate in a pleasing way to me. Early steeps have notes of perfectly toasted golden pecans, grilled corn, hazelnut oil, and gradually the tea picks up more of a fresh floral character amidst the session with some delicate undertones of white peaches. It’s pretty nuanced, and blowing my mind a little how it’s so different and so similar from the Wuyi oolong that I typically gravitate towards.
