Chinese teas history brief: The ancient Chinese used tea leafs for medical purposes, and then developed the infusion we know as tea; to this day tea is said to purge the digestive system of 'toxins'. Later the Chinese learned to grow tea plants and use their leaves to make various types of tea. Most popular types of Chinese teas: Green tea - Green tea is indeed the most widely consumed drink in the world after water. Green tea is very popular in China and there are many varieties of green teas available today. The green teas are favored because of their fresh and subtle taste. Green tea is said to have more natural substances than other teas that are available in the market and it is full of vitamins.
One should always take appropriate amount of green tea each day, just because it benefits your health and reduces your weight, it should not be taken recklessly. You should follow a regular diet while taking green tea. Black tea or red tea - Black or red tea as the Chinese call it, is picked, rolled to expose the juices in the leaf to the air fully, and then fired. Most black tea being produced today represents the most ordinary, substandard tea ever made.
Our Keemun black teas from China are the world's finest, full of complexity, variety and beauty of appearance. White tea - is the most natural form of tea. It is only made from the buds, when they are in their most tender form. It has neither processing nor the fermentation stage of most teas. A rare drink and a wonderful taste developed by the Kings and Queens of ancient China.
Oolong tea - long consumed to enhance health, oolong tea is an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The antioxidants in oolong tea scavenge the body for free radicals - molecules that can damage muscle tissue, hinder immune system function and more - and prevent oxidative stress. Oolong tea can enhance focus because of its caffeine content. Caffeine helps to stimulate the frontal cortex of the brain and this result in intense focus, improved memory function, and enhanced thinking abilities. Persons who supplement with oolong tea report an increased desire to train. Pu-erh tea - The Chinese believe that Pu-erh has even greater health properties than other teas.
From a Chinese Medical point of view, Pu-erh invigorates the spleen, disinhibits dampness, clears stomach heat, and counteracts alcohol toxins. Pu-erh's ability to aid fat metabolism has lead to claims that it can assist in weight loss regimes. Flowering tea - a conversation starter at any tea or dinner party.
