What do we know about tea?
Suggest sit back and pour a cup of tea (green, black, white ... in a bag or brewed according to the rules, with or without sugar, lemon ... or any other up to you). By the way, how many cups of tea do you drink a day? I, for example, about five, more often - it is a green tea with all sorts of fragrant things.
The first known mention of the case relates to the year 770 BC. e. And the birthplace of tea tree is considered to be China. In just torn sheet contains about 75% water. After drying the sheet it is only 3-5% of water. In tea leaves are substances such as letchatka, cellulose, proteins, fats and chlorophyll pigments, pectins, oxidized polyphenols, non-oxidized polyphenols, sugars, amino acids, minerals, caffeine, starch. It is believed that tea has higher property to the "awakening" of the body than coffee. Now let's talk more about each of the "flowers" of tea.

The most common, and certainly tried it all. Of course, there are many varieties. I think about this tea knows that. Only here will add this observation: you probably noticed that on a mug of black tea after left brown spots, and now imagine your stomach. Unpleasant? ...
Not less common, and lately even more popular type of tea. While brewing in green tea is much more minerals than black. Everyone also knows that green tea slows down the aging process.

Helps with diseases associated with metabolism, central nervous and musculoskeletal systems, diseases of the throat and respiratory system. Hmm ... I did not try. I think - worth it. Bad sides do not know, it's for the best.
Similar in color and taste to the green. This type of tea is rare, and the beginning of the twentieth century, its export from China was forbidden! Preparation of yellow tea takes three days, thus preserving its useful properties for a long time. As white tea processing is minimal.
It improves blood circulation and complexion. Occupies an intermediate position between black and green tea. Has a special flavor and taste, do not allow confusion with other types of tea. Dry tea has a distinctive spicy flavor.
Well, and all the basic common varieties of tea, there are, of course, purple, pink, blue, orange ... but that's another story. A decision on which type of tea consumed, is still up to you.
