According to Chinese legend, environment-friendly tea was developed by an emperor who was out in the woodland, and had actually just steamed a kettle of water on his campfire. Unexpectedly, a fanatic gust of wind put out his fire and blew fallen leaves from a close-by tree into the emperor’s hot water. When he came back, the emperor was upset, however still decided to consume the water– just to locate that it currently tasted excellent. Knowing what had actually happened, he took several of the leaves from the tree house with him, and so developed tea.
Whether that’s true or otherwise, there is no question that tea has a long as well as worthy history in China as well as lots of various other Eastern countries, and most of the tea they eat has actually long been either white or environment-friendly tea. It is recognized to have actually been consumed as long ago as the 9th century in Japan, and also has actually long been a social drink and also a standing symbol, in addition to a drink that is considered to have a variety of health and wellness benefits.
The difference between eco-friendly tea and also Western black tea isn’t that they are different plants– they are both made from camellia sinesis, the tea plant– yet that the fallen leaves are discriminated after they are selected. Black tea is first dried and then fermented to ensure that it will last longer, while eco-friendly tea’s treatment quits after the drying out stage, while the green colour of the fallen leaves is still existing. While this indicates that green tea does not stay fresh for long, it also indicates that it has a much fresher preference than black tea, and also many believe that it is far better for you.
The very first time you taste eco-friendly tea you will probably assume that it somehow tastes ‘green’, or grass-like, however it is difficult to define. The most effective way to figure out whether you’ll like it or otherwise is to simply try.
