Tea has been grown for centuries. Before gaining popularity and spreading across the world tea was used as a medical drink. Tea has a healthier benefits compared to coffee. From when it was discovered, tea is much different today. Medicinal purposes were its uses previously. Even today tea still has the medical advantages but has been used for the refreshing taste. In today’s society it has become an integral part.
Tea is mainly applied today either as loose leaf or as tea bags. The tea used in most of the tea bags are not quite the tea quality. Dust and fanning from broken tea leaves are what are used. Tea quality is thus greatly compromised. As the tea leaves are being broken some quality is lost. The essential oils contained as well as the aroma are lost. The sizes and also the shape of the bags are a great factor to be considered. Some constrain the tealeaves. This hinders the exploitation of the leaves full aroma as well as the flavor.
One great benefit of using the loose leaf in tea is the room required. There is a lot of space required by the tealeaves to expand for the full-bodied flavor. Paper tea bags on the other hand shrink and thus prevents the natural unfurling. The assurance that it has been primarily made up of whole unbroken leaves is needed every time you take whole life tea. Using the loose leaf tea, allows the water to flow enough to the leaves. Through this there is therefore extraction of vitamins, minerals and flavor.
Many people leave the industrialized bags and prefer the loose tea lifestyle. One of the main reasons for this is none other than the taste accrued. Releasing of its natural flavor after the loose leaf expands happens after the hot water has been added. It also releases more oils thus which makes the tastes to be even more. Also contained in the loose tea is a great scent. When you are using tea bags and mainly out of their blending, this aroma lacks.
The immune system is boosted up by the loose tea. Another thing that it does is the lowering of the blood pressure as well as improving concentration. Previously tea was used as medicine for thins main reason. It is also know to relieve stress. Loose tea contains antioxidants as well as polyphenols. The chemical are stored in the loose tea leaf. Other nutrients and vitamins are as well present in loose tea. Absorption in to the hot water of these useful substances takes places in tea preparation. Use of tea bags however limits the extraction of these chemicals. The reason is out of the squeezing of the contents. A room enough to dissolve also lacks a lot.
