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.
