There have been recent studies of why people living in the Far East have such a long life. It was found that those who drink a lot of tea live longer because of the health properties of its individual ingredients. The healing properties are mainly attributed to her ability to inactivate oxygen free radicals. The tea turned out to be an antioxidant. Green tea has such properties.
Red-fermented red teas mainly regulate the digestive system. Black, on the other hand, do not have healing properties, but they contain the most tein of all teas. The more fermented tea is, the more tein it contains.

You can get rid of Teina.
There are two ways to get rid of tein from tea. The first method has been practiced for years and involves rinsing the thein with various chemical compounds. The tea leaf is rinsed many times in chemical solutions until the thein is rinsed out of the plant. Unfortunately, each of these rinsing compounds leaves a mark, which is not without significance for our health.
The second way (having many opponents) is the genetic modification of the plant, which is certainly healthier than chemical interventions.
How to prepare a tea infusion?
The way of brewing and drinking tea came mainly to Poland from Russia. Tea was boiled there in teapots, teapots, samovars. Tea leaves have been in water for a long time.
Research has shown that if a tea leaf stays in water for a long time, it also ferments, releasing harmful ingredients for the human body. Some of them are even carcinogenic. The culture of drinking tea in Western Europe is different. The leaf is brewed for the right kind of tea for the right time. In general, it takes between 2 and 5 minutes. After this time, it is necessary to separate the leaf, i.e. grounds from the infusion. For brewing, use only soft water, rich in oxygen. The most harmful component of water for tea infusion is calcium.
Mineral water is excellent for drinking, but it is not suitable for brewing tea or coffee. Do not use distilled water. For brewing, use only clay-coated teapots, porcelain or glass. Aluminum or iron teapots will spoil its taste and smell. Dry the tea in a pre-warmed teapot with water at the moment when tiny bubbles appear on its surface. If we want to drink a good tea, do not let it boil. The boiling causes the oxygen contained in the water to be released rapidly. It is possible to brew two or three times. Each time we will find a different taste. The length of brewing tea depends on its effect. At the beginning of the teina, only after 3-5 minutes, polyphenols, commonly called tannins, are released. These ingredients neutralize the action of teine, so after 7 minutes of brewing, the infusion can be completely free of tein and no more stimulant. In this brew, however, there is a lot of tannin.
