Spring and summer are the peak seasons for tea listing and a good time to drink tea. Modern people who pay attention to health care have fully used the benefits of tea, and the purchase of 2-3 kinds of tea at home has also been very popular. Of course, everyone has their own opinions on the types of tea, and each has their own opinions. Different types of tea will have different functions. In a nutshell, for example, the physique of tea drinkers is better for people with a weak physique. Buy green tea, and those who prefer Yang deficiency constitution should buy black tea. Tea has a shelf life like most foods, and tea has strict requirements for storage and environmental conditions.

When the new tea is launched, we will buy fresh new tea one after another, and the tea leaves will always change slightly after a period of time. For example, we can keep the freshness and quality of the tea to the best. It is worth learning.

The shelf life of tea is generally 18 months. Drinking tea after the shelf life will have a bad benefit on the body. Usually, the shelf life of sealed tea is 12 months to 24 months. Everyone must pay attention when purchasing tea View. Some teas, such as Pu-erh in Yunnan, are more mature and more fragrant, with a shelf life of up to 20 years. Packed tea is safer than bulk tea. It is usually judged whether the tea has expired. You can see if it is moldy or old; green tea turns red and the soup becomes brown and dark; the concentration, astringency and freshness of the taste Whether the coolness has decreased.

We can generally use these methods when storing tea:

1. The simplest refrigerator preservation: Put the tea leaves in a dry, odorless, sealable container and put it in the refrigerator freezer. If the quantity of tea is small and very dry, it can also be packed and sealed in a two-layer moisture-proof film bag and placed in the refrigerator.

2. The most common storage method of iron cans: Put the tea leaves into the iron tea cans with double lids, it is best to fill them without leaving gaps, so that there is less air in the cans. The double-layer lid should be tightly closed, and the gap between the lids should be glued together, and the tea canister should be put into two layers of nylon bags, and the mouth should be sealed to achieve the best storage benefit.

3. The most convenient storage method of the composite film bag: put the tea leaves into the composite bag, squeeze out the air in the bag, seal the bag mouth with a sealing machine, then put on a plastic bag, tie the bag mouth tightly, and put it in the lower compartment of the refrigerator refrigeration.

4. The most practical storage method for thermos flasks: put the tea leaves into a dry thermos flask, cover the stopper, seal it with white wax, and seal it with tape.

In addition, what we want to be legal is that the moisture content of the tea during storage: green tea cannot exceed 5%, and black tea does not exceed 7%. We can fry or dry the tea leaves before collecting them; tea also needs to be protected from light and heat, so there are certain requirements for the storage environment.

In addition to storage requirements, drinking tea should also be moderate, if the body absorbs too much tea in a day, it will also have an impact on health. In general, healthy adults usually have the habit of drinking tea. Between 6 grams and 10 grams of tea a day, it is most appropriate to brew 2 or 3 times. For people who have a lot of physical labor, a lot of physical energy consumption, and a large amount of food, especially in high temperature environments, or people who are exposed to more toxic substances, it is also possible to drink about 20 grams of tea a day. And those who eat more greasy food and a large amount of tobacco and alcohol can also appropriately increase the amount of tea. It is worth noting that the amount of tea consumed by pregnant women and children should be reduced appropriately.
As for whether to drink cold tea or hot tea. In fact, drinking hot tea cools down quickly, and it can also make people smart and refreshed. Experiments have shown that when drinking hot tea, by sweating can significantly reduce the surface temperature of human skin within a few minutes, greatly improving the feeling of thirst; while drinking herbal tea, the skin temperature change is not obvious. Therefore, in the hot summer, still drink hot tea to quench your thirst.
