Spring is the good season to produce tea, but also good times to taste tea. If you want to drink a cup of tea, besides having superior good tea, good water conditions, you also should grasp points to make tea, and then you will drink tea more healthily.
Green tea should be made and drunk presently. The reason that Green tea has the effects of antioxidation, scavenging free radicals, anti-aging, antiviral sanitarian, is because of tea polyphenols. If the temperature is too high or brewing time is too long, polyphenols material will be destroyed. Tea not only will turn yellow, aromatic substances also can volatilize. Generally speaking, it is advisable to the brew green tea with 80 ℃ water. Brewing time for 2-3 minutes is good, but you’d better brew and drink it right now. Green tea and water should be in the advisable proportion, with 1:50. We commonly use three grams of tea mixed with 150 milliliter water. The brewing method of yellow and white tea is close to the above one.
It is healthier to brew the black tea with longer time. And being different from green tea, high water temperature can promote flavonoid care substances in black tea effectively dissolve, which not only let taste and aroma thicker, but also still can better play its health care function. Therefore, black tea should be brew with boiled water, and soaked for a longer time. Generally speaking, 5 minutes are optimal. Water amount of brewing black tea is the same with green tea.
As for Oolong tea, we should use more tea. The brewing water of Oolong tea also should use boiling water. Oolong tea usage should be more, generally with 10 grams, about half of red enameled pottery volume. Oolong tea can be brew 5-6 times, time can be from short to long, and 2-5 minutes is advisable.
Black tea, the key is to wash. Black tea represented by pure tea, belongs to fermentation tea kind with thicker and older raw materials. The characteristic of black tea is the older, the more fragrant. We have to go through the process of the more violent boiling water firstly, and then we can make composition contained fully dissolved. Scattered tea is easy to reek of flavor, and tightly compressed brick tea should be cooked. When firstly we brew black tea, we should wash tea with 10 seconds. That is firstly we quickly put tea into the cup, and then pour into the boiling water. After a while, we pour away the water, and add boiling water, and then coat it with the bowl cover. So we not only filter impurities of the tea, but also make tea more fragrant. Subsequent brewing time is often for 5 minutes.
