In recent years, white tea has become more and more popular. It not only has a fresh and refreshing taste, but also has significant health and medicinal effects. White tea is a kind of micro-fermented tea. The process is simple, without frying or kneading, it will wither and dry in two steps, with very little manual intervention. Therefore, white tea can retain the original form and nutrition of tea to the greatest extent. It is known as "one year of tea, three years of medicine, seven years of treasure".
After being aged, new white tea is transformed into old white tea. The content of caffeine and tea polyphenols tends to be flat and introverted after the precipitation of old white tea. The contents of new leaves are converted into glucose, amino acids, pectin and other substances, which makes the tea soup of old white tea smoother and more mellow.
The tea polyphenols contained in the old white tea have the effect of clearing heat and reducing fire, and it is very good to drink in the season when it is easy to dry and catch fire in summer or autumn and winter;
The flavonoids and catechins contained in old white tea have bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effects, can effectively inhibit the rapid expansion of the virus in the body, and enhance human immunity; the flavonoids contained in white tea can not only lower blood pressure, but also reduce blood pressure. High middle-aged and elderly people are of great benefit. At the same time, this substance is also a natural antioxidant, which can remove free radicals in the human body and maintain skin elasticity.
Old white tea is brewed with boiling water at 100 ° C. In order to maintain the aroma of tea, it is best to use "soft water" with low metal ion content, such as purified water and high-quality mineral water. For the first time to brew old white tea, it takes 3 seconds to wash the tea quickly. First put about 5 grams of tea in a cup, pour boiling water, and then pour off the water, then pour boiling water and cover the cup. This not only filters out the impurities of the tea leaves, but also makes the brewed tea soup more mellow. Subsequent brewing time lengthens. Old white tea is usually brewed with professional tea sets, purple sand pots and cups can be used. The dosage is generally about 5 grams.
In addition, old white tea can be brewed, especially in winter. Add water to the tea pot to two-thirds of the body, heat to a boil, and add three to five grams of tea according to the size of the body. Slowly boil over low heat, keep the tea soup cold, and the tea soup will become darker in color before you can make soup.
