What kind of Tea refreshes your day at Work?
Tea could be easily the second most popular drink in the world after coffee. Drinking tea dates back to ancient times and it provides a host of health benefits minus the caffeine. Its refreshing aroma and taste is the reason for the existence of ‘tea breaks’ at work.
So, what is tea made from? Anything from dried leaves, flowers, dried petals added to hot water can be labelled as tea. But only leaves from the Camellia Sinensis species of plant can be referred to as tea. This delightful beverage is made from the same plant, but the length of oxidation along with methods gives birth to the various categories of tea.
This favourite beverage is grown all over the world but is mainly produced in highest quality and quantity in China, India, Japan, Sri Lanka and Taiwan. White, Green, Oolong, Black , and Pu’erh are some of the main types of tea.
This type is known for its delicate and elegant flavour. White tea undergoes the least amount of processing. The youngest shoots of the tea are used to prepare this flavourful beverage. The finest white tea is found in the Fujian province of China. Silver Needle and Bai Mudan are some of the popular white tea types.
Green tea is highly popular among tea lovers around the world for its health benefits. Steaming and pan-firing are the two main methods used to produce green tea. Sencha and Genmaicha are popular Japanese green teas. Matcha is another type of Japanese green tea, which became radically famous among tea drinkers. It is known for its antioxidants properties and for boosting metabolism. For a healthy start, use a tea maker to prepare your green tea instead of a tea bag. This process will provide more flavour as tea leaves expand in the water rather than a small bag.
Oolong tea is found in China and Taiwan and undergoes numerous steps during production. Baozhong, JinXuan, Da Hong Pao are some of the famous oolongs. A great Oolong tea is immersed eight times or more, each steep releasing a new dimension of flavour.
