Growing of tea has been done for many centuries. The use of tea was as a medical drink before it gained popularity in the whole world. Tea gives an alternative to coffee due to the many health benefits. It is very different today from when it was discovered. Medicinal purposes were its uses previously. The medical advantages are still contained in tea even though today its used for the refreshing taste. It has become a very integral part of most of the societies today.
Tea is mainly applied today either as loose leaf or as tea bags. The tea quality is not great which is used in most of the tea bags. They are the dust and fanning from the broken tea leaves. It is thus a great compromise to the tea quality. 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. In some, tealeaves are constrained. Their full flavor and aroma is thus hindered from being exploited.
The room required is one of the benefits accruing the use of loose leaf. To expand for the full-bodied flavor a lot of tealeaves are required. 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 main reasons for this is none other than the taste accrued. After adding water, the loose leaf expands and releases all its natural flavor. More oil is added therefore making the taste to be even better. The loose tea also contains great scent. When you are using tea bags and mainly out of their blending, this aroma lacks.
Loose tea helps in boosting your immune system. It also helps in lowering blood pressure and improving your concentration. This is why previous tea was used as medicine. It is also know to relieve stress. Loose tea contains antioxidants as well as polyphenols. The chemical are stored in the loose tea leaf. In loose tea there is also the presence of vitamin and nutrients. 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.
