Bai Ji Guan (白鸡冠) is one of the Si Da Ming Cong and a very light Wuyi tea. Bai Ji Guan literally translated means "white cockscomb".

The legend has it that the name of this tea was given by a monk in memorial of a courageous rooster that sacrificed his life while protecting his baby from an eagle. Touched by these courage the monk buried the rooster under a tree at the farm. When the monk returned the next year he saw a tea bush growing under the tree where he buried the rooster.

Unlike most Wuyi teas the leaves of this tea are yellowish rather than green or brown.
