What kind of tea do Chinese drink
· Chinese green tea:
Of all the Chinese teas, green tea is the most natural and familiar. It is famous tea all over the world. Green tea comes with several health benefits, including weight loss, fighting diabetes, heart problems, and obesity.
· Pu-erh tea:
Large-scale tea brewing in the province of Yunnan province, Pu-erh tea is an ideal type of tea in which most of its health benefits are derived from its reputation. Tea leaves are oxidized and fermented after drying.
· Chinese black tea:
This tea, commonly known as 'red tea' from China, got its name because of its high oxidation color. It is dry, oxidized and roasted, and has a more profound process than any other type of tea, resulting in green, white, or oval tea.
· Chinese oolong tea:
The composition of this oolong tea is somewhere between green and black tea types. The process leaves it semi-fermented or semi-oxidized. This tea follows a different procedure. It is first fried, wrapped, and then roasted, giving the leaves a green color in the middle, pointing to the red edge.
· Chinese white tea:
The white tea color comes from the tea plant's unopened buds. It is pretty healthy because it retains its antioxidant properties even after the synthetic procedure has been performed. Its process is the same as green tea.
How to make traditional Chinese tea
- Choose tea from a vacuum pack bag that lasts no more than a month or two. Ideally, use spring water, but if you have to rely on tap water, use water that is already boiled.
- Fill a third of a small teapot with tea leaves.
- Pour the leaves into boiling water at 90 degrees Celsius (194 Fahrenheit). Squeeze the water out. This first infusion, which is always thrown away immediately, washes the leaves.
- Pour more hot water over the tea leaves. Please wait a minute or two and then pour the liquid into a small pot (part of a standard tea set) through a tea stencil so that it doesn't get too long. It should be greenish-yellow tea.
- Pour the liquid from the pot into a small cylindrical sniffer cup. It smells good, and then put it in a small drinking cup. Both cups come with a set of tea.
- Drink cups in three to four hours.
- Repeat step 4 until the leaves become too weak to produce any flavour.
- The third infusion through the fifth infusion is generally considered to be the best infusion of tea. However, different teas react differently and may require an additional infusion of boiling water to bring them to life.
- The water temperature depends on the tea. Cooked tea should be made with 90-degree water. Use water at 70 to 80 degrees for small tea. If the water is too hot, the tea will be bitter.
