| Spring tea generally refers to tea leaves that are harvested from the buds and leaves of the first germination of tea trees after overwintering. Tea tree is rich in nutrients, high in aromatic substances and vitamins, strong in aroma, strong and firm in shape, and rich in health care. In addition, the temperature of spring tea season is low, the occurrence of pests and diseases is relatively small, and pesticide spraying is not required, so spring tea is generally free of pollution. Therefore, spring tea has been much loved. Especially those who understand tea and tea lovers drink green tea and only spring tea. |
The tea before the Ming Dynasty was picked before Qingming. The tea buds and leaves would be more delicate and less affected by pests and diseases. The tea before the rain is not as delicate and fresh as the tea before the Ming because it has a lot of rain, high temperatures and many diseases and insect pests during the valley rain season. However, during the period from Qingming to Guyu, tea trees grew vigorously. Although the contents of tea leaves were not as good as those of Mingqian tea, compared to summer tea and autumn tea, they had a richer taste, fresher taste and pure aroma.
New tea (tea leaves that have been picked for less than one month) has not been placed for a period of time, and some substances that have adverse effects on the body, such as polyphenols, alcohols, have not been fully oxidized. After drinking, symptoms such as diarrhea and bloating may occur. Therefore, the new tea should be stored for half a month before drinking, especially for people with gastrointestinal diseases.
You should also pay attention to making spring tea, the water temperature should not be too high, only about 80 degrees. Because spring tea buds are very tender, boiling water will blanch the tea and it will not taste good. It should also be noted that some people drink tea for a whole day, which is wrong. Tea is soaked 3 times for better taste. The exception is wild fragrant tea, which can be brewed 7 times.
By the way, I will teach you a trick. After a long time, the scented tea will dissipate and become oily. It is a pity to throw it away, but the taste is not good. Then you can choose to fry the scented tea in the pot. The flavor of the fried tea will be stronger in this way.
Why should we drink spring tea for half a month?
