Bai Ji Guan  is a Si Da Ming Cong and a very light Wuyi tea. Today, Bai Ji Guan tea bush is one of the five famous Wu Yi's tea bushes. Among all the Wu Yi teas, Bai Ji Guan is the rarest. This is because it requires great skill and effort to produce this magnificent tea and there are not many tea masters that can do it properly today, to begin with. only  few of them are willing to process Bai Ji Guan tea. Its wonderful complex taste and rarity makes it one of the most treasured Oolong in the world.

Legend:

It is named after a rooster who gave up its life whilst protecting a child.

Legend has it that the name of this tea (White Cockscomb) was given by a monk in memorial of a courageous rooster that sacrificed his life while protecting his baby from an eagle. Touched by the display of courage and love, the monk buried the rooster and from that spot, the Bai Ji Guan tea bush grew.

Bai Ji Guan has been famous since the early Ming Dynasty (1368-1644AD). Believed to be an antidote for poison, the monks on Wuyi Mountain used this tea to save the life of a sick child of a prominent official. The tea was later presented to the Emperor and became a regular tribute tea.

Appearance:

Unlike most Wuyi teas the leaves of this tea are yellowish rather than green or brown.the shape of the tea leaves are of ordinary Wuyi Oolong but the color is somewhat yellowish green.The shape and color of the leaves is said to look like the comb of a large cock. 

Taste:

Bai Ji Guan taste is wonderfully complex. It starts off sweet, uniquely fruity with a toasty floral honeyed aroma and finishes with a lingering mellow fruit and honey note.As one of the most unique teas of Wuyi Mountain, Bai Ji Guan contains hints of chocolate maleness, a unique light keemun-like flavor, and a bit of peach, a very delicate after taste and a sense of sweetness, like English coffee.
