Very confused. I make green tea at home. I have been drinking green tea since I was a child. It is the most healthy for anti-aging, weight loss, lowering three highs and so on. . . But now there is more and more contact with tea. I don’t know which tea is the healthiest. One will say how good black tea is, one will hear that old white tea is a treasure, one will say that Pu’er is the kingly way, and one will hear that yellow tea is the best.

Which tea is healthier? It depends on which type of tea your body needs more endoplasmic ingredients! Tea leaves form different types of tea according to the preparation method, mainly because the various chemical components of the fresh leaves undergo different changes in the preparation process. The formation of quality is mainly due to changes in polyphenols, such as black tea with red leaves and red soup, green tea with clear soup and green leaves. Let’s take a look at the classification table of the six major teas, and you will understand at a glance! Is this table particularly clear! At a glance, the six major tea categories and the sub-categories under its branches are clear! (This must be a thumbs up) Let’s talk about it one by one! (1) Green tea: non-fermented 1. Stir-fried green tea Long-fried green tea: The main producing areas are Zhejiang, Anhui, and Jiangxi, mainly small-leaf tea species. The quality characteristics are: tightly knotted ropes, straight and uniform, with sharp sprouts, and green color. Yuanchaqing: Mainly concentrated in Pingshui Town, Shaoxing, Zhejiang, so it is also called “Pingshuizhu tea”, and Maocha is also called Pingchaoqing. The shape is granular, round and tight like beads, uniform and heavy, and the color is dark green and oily. The inner flavor is pure, the taste is rich and the soup is clear and bright. Bianchaoqing: The shape is flat, representing West Lake Longjing, Dafang Tea, and Qiqiang Tea. 2. Roasted green tea is roasted green tea, including hairy green and special green tea. Mao Hongqing is a kind of killing tea with a wide range of production areas. The name of the product is usually added with the name of the place of origin before “Mao Hongqing”, such as Zhemao Hongqing, Huimao Hongqing, Fujian Mao Hongqing, Xiangmao Hongqing, etc. Baked green famous tea: Huangshan Maofeng, Taiping Houkui, Kaihua Longding, etc. 3. Sun-green Sun-green is mainly produced in Central South, Southwest and Shaanxi, generally in the name of the place of origin, such as Yunnan Maoqing, E Maoqing, Chuan Maoqing and so on. (2) Black tea: Fully fermented 1. Lapsang Souchong: The originator of black tea. It has a plump appearance, a black and oily color, a bright soup, a pure and long aroma, with a scent of pine smoke, and a mellow taste similar to longan soup. 2. Kungfu black tea Yinghong: Produced in Yingde, Guangdong, large-leaf tea, high-grade British infrared-shaped bar fat, strong and strong, showing the front seedlings, the color is dark and moist, the aroma is tender and fragrant, it has a special regional fragrance, and the taste is delicious. Rich and mellow, strong astringency, the soup is red and bright, the bottom of the leaves is thick and tender, and the color is red and bright. Qi Hong: Produced in Qimen, Anhui Province, the main varieties are Castanopsis species in the small-leaf species. The appearance is very fine and delicate, the color is dark and moist, the aroma is fresh and sweet, the taste is fresh and mellow and sweet, the soup color is red and bright, and the bottom of the leaf is red. 3. Broken black tea is divided into four types: leaf tea, broken tea, sliced ​​tea, and powdered tea. (I won’t talk about this one. If you are interested, you can refer to the relevant information.) (3) Yellow tea; the initial preparation process of yellow tea is basically the same as that of green tea, except that a “sultry yellow” is added before drying. The process causes the yellow tea aroma to change and the taste becomes mellow. 1. Yellow bud tea: can be divided into silver needle and Huangya Junshan Silver Needle: produced in Junshan Mountain in Dongting Lake, Yueyang, Hunan, all are made from unsuccessful fat bud tips, and its quality characteristics are that the appearance of buds is strong and full of hairs. , The color is golden and bright; the inner substance has a clear aroma, the soup is light yellow in color, and the taste is sweet and refreshing. The bottom of the leaf is full of buds, and it is bright yellow. Brewed in a glass, the bud tip rushes to sleep, hangs upright, and then slowly sinks, some of the strong buds can go up and down three times, and finally stand at the bottom of the cup. Mengding Yellow Bud: Produced in Mingshan County, Ya’an, Sichuan. The fresh leaves are picked as one bud and one leaf. The shape is straight, plump and tender, golden in color, and the inner body soup is tender and yellow in color, sweet and mellow. 2. Huangxiaocha Beigang Maojian: Produced in Beigang, Yueyang, Hunan. The shape is tightly knotted, heavy, and curly, with golden hairs revealing, and the color is golden; the inner substance of the soup is clear apricot and yellow, the aroma is high, and the taste is mellow. Weishan Maojian: Produced in Weishan Mountain, Ningxiang County, Hunan Province, with slightly curled leaf edges, golden shrubs, bright yellow and oily color, and bright orange-yellow inner soup with a deep scent of pine smoke, sweet, mellow and refreshing. The key to forming the quality characteristics of Weishan Maojian is the two processes of “smoggy” and “smoky” during the initial production. 3. Yellow tea: Huoshan yellow tea, Guangdong Daye green (4), Oolong tea 1, Fujian Oolong tea Minnan Oolong tea: when making green, the degree of fermentation is light, the twisting is heavier, and the drying process has the process of wrapping and kneading, forming a curly shape, strong and strong , Dry tea is green in color, has a long and slender fragrance, and the bottom of the leaf is green with red dots or borders. North Fujian Oolong: heavy fermentation when making green, no kneading process, strong and curved strips, dry tea color is oozy, and the aroma is ripe, the soup is bright orange-yellow, the bottom of the leaf is three red and seven green, and the red border is obvious . 2. Guangdong Oolong Tea Phoenix Dancong: Mainly produced in Fenghuang Mountain, Fenghuang Town, the famous tea township in Chaoan County, Chaozhou. The scent is different because of the different tree types and leaf types. It has the fragrance of gardenia and the fragrance of orchids. There are sweet-scented osmanthus, etc., and their charm and sweetness are also different. 3. Taiwan Oolong tea bag planting tea: Taiwan’s oolong tea is currently the most abundant in quantity, the degree of fermentation is also the lightest among oolong tea, and the quality is close to that of green tea. Dongding Oolong: Produced from Dongding Mountain in Nantou County, Taiwan. It is hemispherical in shape, green in color, slightly pekoe, with a fragrance of orchids, frankincense, and a sweet, smooth and refreshing taste. Pekoe Oolong: The most fermented oolong tea, and the tenderness of fresh leaves is also the most tender in oolong tea. (5) White tea; micro-fermented tea White tea can be divided into “big white” and “small white” according to the size of the tea plant of the fresh leaf raw materials. After refining, the flower and color varieties include Baihao Yinzhen, Bai Peony and Gongmei. (6) Black tea; the kneaded leaves are piled up, and the leaves are piled up by the damp and heat in the pile to remove the astringency and rough taste, so that the leaf color changes from dark green to yellowish brown. , The formation of black tea has a pure aroma and no harsh smell. Black tea is divided into bulk black tea and pressed black tea. 1. Bulk black tea: also called black hair tea, mainly including Hunan black hair tea, Hubei old green tea, Yunnan Pu’er tea and so on. 2. Pressed dark tea: After finishing and processing, it is steamed and pressed into shape. According to the pressed shape, it can be divided into brick tea, pillow tea, and cake tea. Which tea is healthier? It depends on which type of tea your body is more suitable for! Of course, tea is not a medicine, it can only have the effect of health care, do you want to count on tea to cure diseases? I advise you to go to the hospital as soon as possible and don’t waste time!

My understanding of tea is to treat it as an ordinary beverage, and don’t place any hope of health preservation or even healing. Just like many people say, onions can lower blood pressure, I have high blood pressure, so I want to eat onions violently. The argument that onions lower blood pressure mainly comes from some studies decades ago, saying that onions contain prostaglandin A, which has a certain function of lowering blood pressure. So this argument was amplified and spread across the country, saying that onions can lower blood pressure. And the prostaglandin A contained in an onion is in the milligram level. Not to mention the content, how many onions can you eat to be effective. How much can this thing eat in your stomach before it is absorbed? Therefore, if blood pressure is high, instead of eating onions, it is better to change your life habits while taking medicine for treatment and adjustment. Drinking tea is the same. Many people say that drinking tea has many functions because it contains this and that. For example, some people say that drinking tea can lower blood pressure, and drinking tea can resist the lung damage caused by smoking. These can find the so-called science Evidence is that a certain substance has been extracted from it. After a certain experiment, this substance has a certain effect. But this effect has little effect on health preservation, let alone curing diseases. If we are sick, we still have to take medicine honestly. As for health preservation, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the main factor. Drinking tea cannot offset the harm caused by other bad behaviors. I think that as long as you make sure that drinking tea is not harmful to you, at least in my opinion, it is better to drink tea than to indulge in milk tea. Drinking fat house happy water is better. After all, the low sugar content can promote everyone to drink more water and promote Urinating brings out metabolic waste from the body. It’s really unnecessary to have to compare it. As long as it’s true, all kinds of beneficial substances can be extracted from it, but this kind of in vitro and animal experiments, as well as experiments on purified substances, really don’t make much sense. Drinking tea, it’s good to be happy, like it is the kingly way.

Flatbread, rice, noodles and steamed buns, which one has the most full stomach? It depends on how much you eat. Which is the healthiest? This question itself is not appropriate. In fact, the processed tea is healthy. Of course, there are actually six major teas. Now we evaluate this problem in the most extreme way. Take the fresh leaves of a certain kind of middle-leaf tea tree in a certain place to make 500g of each of the six major tea types. So now it is possible that in order not to be bitter, green tea is picked more delicately, and the situation is similar to yellow tea. For black tea, oolong tea and white tea, we all pick medium-tenderness tea, while black tea is directly cut with a small sickle. Rough and old tea leaves. This situation is common to everyone. After some production, there are six kinds of dry tea in front of us. We take all 3g and soak it for 5 minutes at a time. (Oolong tea is also dried like this) Come and drink. It can be expected that the simple polyphenols should be green tea. Green tea is relatively high in vitamin C. Caffeine may be relatively high in green tea and yellow tea because of its tenderness. Caffeine is not low because of the hydrolysis of black tea. Black tea, oolong tea, and white tea have more theaflavins, and dark tea has more theafucins. In terms of tea polysaccharides, there are more rough and old dark teas. Antioxidant function, green tea should be the first. However, the high tenderness of green tea may cause the caffeine to be too high, which may affect sleep. With low gastric irritation, black tea should be the least irritating, followed by black tea and white tea. The content of aromatic oil should be the highest in oolong tea and black tea, and the benefits of aroma to the body are also very obvious. The anti-three high function, in this way, dark tea should be stronger. Because it is rough and old. If there are professionals who have different opinions, they can be criticized in the comments. But this conclusion has no meaning at all. Because the six major teas we drink hardly have the same kind of tree in the same place, the concentration of the six major teas we drink varies greatly, and everyone’s physique is different. The answer is that there is no healthiest tea.

The first is in terms of the chemical composition of tea. What is health? Even if it does not damage the body, it is best to protect the body. Xiaohu believes that as long as a tea can achieve the efficacy of a recognized effective medicine or health care product, it is a healthy tea. What substance in tea has a protective effect on the human body? One is tea polyphenols, and the other is tea polysaccharides. The health effects of these two (in mouse experiments) have been mentioned in many papers. Other substances similar to theanine are found in various teas, so they are not within the scope of this discussion. As a peculiar substance in tea, tea polyphenols are very high in fresh leaves. As tea is processed, tea polyphenols in fresh leaves may undergo enzymatic oxidation (polyphenol oxidase oxidation) and chemical oxidation (non-enzymatic oxidation). The most typical example is that during the processing of black tea, tea polyphenols will be enzymatically oxidized into theaflavins, thearubicins and theafucins (fermentation process). Therefore, as long as the tea polyphenols are not oxidized or the degree of oxidation is low, the tea is “healthy”. In other words, there is no fermentation step in the processing of green tea and white tea, and the tea polyphenols are well preserved. During the tea drinking process, the tea polyphenols can enter the human body and have better health effects on the human body. Tea polysaccharides are substances formed by complexing polysaccharides and proteins, and have the functions of lowering blood sugar, lowering blood lipids, and anti-oxidation. The content of tea polysaccharides is higher in leaves with higher maturity (old leaves). Therefore, the tea polysaccharide content in the finished tea made from old leaves is higher. Therefore, dark tea and oolong tea contain higher tea polysaccharides and have better health effects. The second is from the perspective of Chinese medicine theory. Chinese medicine believes that human physique is divided into three types: neutral, warm, and cold, and the six major teas also have this grouping. When people with a cold constitution drink cold tea (green tea), they are prone to symptoms such as diarrhea, while people with a warm constitution drink warm tea (black tea), they are prone to symptoms such as getting angry. Therefore, in the view of Chinese medicine, there is no “healthy” tea suitable for everyone. It varies from person to person, and the choice of tea is “healthy” depending on the situation. In summary, for young people, green tea should be the most suitable and healthiest; for the elderly, oolong or black tea has the best health effects. But say one thousand things and ten thousand, tea is just a kind of drink, don’t put too much emphasis on the health benefits of tea, the effect of drinking tea also varies from person to person.

According to the theory of Chinese medicine, food has the properties of food and medicine, and has four qi and five flavors, that is, cold and warm four qi and five flavors of acid, bitter, sweet, pungent, and salty. It is a means to regulate the yin and yang of the human body and restore it to a normal and healthy state. The hot and cold properties of medicines and foods are related to the degree of bitterness and sweetness. Those with heavy bitterness are usually cold, and those with light bitterness and slightly sweeter are generally hot. Chinese medicine is to treat cold diseases with heat medicine, and treat fever with cold medicine. Yang wins yin, yin wins yang, yang nourishes yin, and yin nourishes yang. This is also the principle of tea therapy. If you want to better regulate your health by drinking tea, you must understand the taste of each type of tea.

Without considering this issue from the perspective of professional theory, based on your own tea-drinking experience and the opinions of tea friends around you, which kind of tea is the healthiest? Of course, it is not necessary to generalize, and there is no need to have a correct answer. Don’t follow blindly. Just listen to others say which tea is the best and the most healthy. To put it simply, firstly it must be clean, then it must be tasteful, it is pleasant and comfortable, and finally it is right, it is the tea that suits its physique. I like to drink green tea, especially the spring charm of Mingqian tea, which makes me want to stop. The fresh and refreshing fragrance of green tea is very comfortable. After drinking, the signal received by the body is also comfortable, natural and particularly energetic. Later, I found many friends around me. But I can’t drink green tea, and I can easily get stomachache or tremor when I drink it. But when I drink black tea and rock tea, my body is prone to heat, especially easy to get hot. Although I also like the taste and aroma of rock tea, but I don’t dare to drink too much on weekdays, but some tea lovers especially like to drink rock tea, which is especially good for drinking. , That is, the body is very adapted to this type of tea. So no matter which one suits me, I think the healthiest one is the healthiest. If you drink it and make you feel uncomfortable, then no matter how others praise that tea, it is not your dish.

Outrageous. Why are the five major teas? Red, green, white, blue, yellow and black, who did you kick out? And not counting the reprocessed tea such as scented tea. There is simply no such standard as the healthiest. The processing methods of different teas partially change the inner quality of the tea, and what is changed is the suitable population of different teas. “The honey of A, the arsenic of B.” There is no tea that works best, and there is no tea that is suitable for everyone. How can it be the healthiest? People who are really keen on advocating which kind of tea is the healthiest are most likely to be those who produce and sell that kind of tea. What is the point of this kind of argument about how to sell melons?
