Anxi Bai Cha is also valued in Chinese culture for the fact that its leaves have a color reminiscent of the shade of noble jade. It should be stored in the iron jar in which it is sold, away from products and things with a strong smell, because white tea absorbs extraneous odors especially quickly. Anxi Bai Chai contains substances that are mild antidepressants, helps to cope with the effects of stress, and improves immunity.

Brew this tea through channels in a gaiwan or teapot, using water at a temperature of about 80 degrees. Put the tea in a vessel for brewing, for one tea party you will need about 3 g of tea, depending on the number of participants in the ceremony. Then rinse the tea by pouring water over it and draining it. Add water to the gaiwan about one-third full of the vessel, let it stay in contact with the tea for about 15 seconds to open the tea. Then add water to the gaiwan until the volume reaches 2/3 of the gaiwan.
Cover the gaiwan loosely, leaving a gap for oxygen to enter, let the tea and water come into contact for about 10 seconds, and drain the tea. At the next exposure, simply pour water into the gaiwan, 2/3 of its volume, and let it stand in contact with the tea for about 15 seconds, at the next brewing time, increase the contact time between water and tea by another 5…10 seconds. Tea lasts about 8 brews at the peak of its taste and aroma.
