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. In the previous years it was only used for medicinal purposes. 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. When used in tea bags it does not meet the required quality. They are the dust and fanning from the broken tea leaves. There is great compromise to the tea quality. Some quality is lost in the breaking of the leaves. Also lost is the aroma and essential oils contained. The sizes and also the shape of the bags are a great factor to be considered. Tea leaves are constrained in some. This thus keeps them from exploiting their full flavor as well as the aroma.
The room required is one of the benefits accruing the use of loose leaf. Tealeaves usually need space for the full-bodied flavor in expansion. Natural unfurling is prevented as the paper tea bags shrinks. The whole life tea that has been made from the whole broken leaves gives you the assurances of quality. In loose leaf tea water flows 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 reasons is out the taste that comes along with loose leaf tea. The loose leaf expands and releases all of its natural flavor after you add water. It also releases more oils thus which makes the tastes to be even more. Also contained in the loose tea is a great scent. This aroma lacks when you are using tea bags because of their blending.
Boosting of the immune system is also done by the loose tea. It also helps in lowering blood pressure and improving your concentration. The reason why previously tea was used as medicine is this. Relieving stress is another function its known for. Antioxidants as well as polyphenols are contained in loose tea. In the tea leaf its where these chemicals are contained. There are also other vitamins and nutrients that are present in loose tea. Absorption in to the hot water of these useful substances takes places in tea preparation. The extraction of these chemicals is usually limited by the use of tea bags. This is because the contents are squeezed. There is also not enough room to dissolve.
