Bai Ji Guan or white cockscomb is a type of Chinese rock tea. It is named for its distinctive white buds, which resemble the comb of a rooster. The white cockscomb is one of the Four Famous Firs of Wuyi Mountain, along with Dahongpao, Tie Luohan and Shuijingui. These teas are all produced in the rocky soil of Wuyishan National Park and are known for their high quality.

The white cockscomb is picked in late May each year, and its leaves are light green in color with a sweet, distinct flavor. In Chinese culture, the white cockscomb is associated with good luck and fortune. This tea is said to have originated in the Ming Dynasty when it was used to cure serious illnesses. Since then, the white cockscomb has been beloved by tea enthusiasts for its unique flavor and history.

This Wuyi oolong is probably one of the most fun Wuyi tea. The aroma and flavor are very different from all other Wuyi tea. The bai ji guan has a roasted flavor with floral notes that lead to a lightly sweet aftertaste. This tea can go well with spicy food, balancing it out after intensifying the spiciness. This tea aroma has a similar aroma to Japanese Houjicha. Sweet and woody.

A great example of a white cocks comb Wuyi Oolong. High minerality, nice roast, and very active on the palate. It begs for you to take another sip. Dynamic and evolving flavor from beginning to end that keeps it so interesting. Just when you think you’ve seen what it has to give it shows you something new. Lastly this tea is very energetic with a pronounced Qi.
