Product description

  Anji Flat Leaf (AnJi Bai Cha) - Sedona Arizona's Full-Leaf Tea Store 
Our Anji Flaf Leaf is also called An Ji Bai Cha, or "white tea from Anji" due to its ghostly light green color, but it is really processed and recognized as a GREEN TEA.  It is fairly rare, grown specifically and uniquely in Anji County, Zhejiang Province, at the foot of Tianmu Mountain in southwest China, which is about a 4-hr drive west from Shanghai.  Anji tea leaves are very temperature sensitive, so when picked in very early spring (at between high 60's and just below the average 73°F days), they have less chlorophyll and lighter green color while not absorbing as much sunlight. The leaves also have extraordinary (2-4 times) the normal amino acid levels than usual green tea, giving them the sweetest, most refreshing taste, with the L-Theanine amino acid providing a satisfying and calming effect to the body (some refer to as a tea drunk).  As the daily temperature warms a few weeks later, the leaves turn darker green as it again absorbs sunlight, the L-Theanine level dropping back to normal and become less desirable than that ideal "white tea" period. This is the low production, gourmet, flat leaf, "Dragon" variety of Anji (like Dragonwell), instead of a more common, twisted, feathered leaf "Phoenix" version. 
 
If you would like to read more about the benefits of L-Theanine, we have found a valuable go-to source for nootropics, mental health, and nutrition information: COGNITUNE.  An article describing turmeric can be found at:  https://www.cognitune.com/l-theanine-benefits/
