Is there any tea gas in Pu er tea? What is the tea gas of Pu er tea? Where does the tea gas come from? How to experience the tea gas of Pu er tea? Such problems, a lot of Pu'er tea people confused, it has become a controversial topic of Pu er tea.
1. Tea gas principle of Pu er tea
From the experience point of view, Pu'er Tea tea gas indistinct, theoretically speaking, the traditional theory of tea can not be explained, so only from Qigong principle, even from the metaphysics perspective of trying to explain, due to the experience of the non prominence and the theory of uncertainty, cause a lot of people against the tea gas said, that tea gas is just people's imagination. it is inexistence.
In fact, tea gas really exist. The so-called tea gas is the release of energy during the decomposition process of tea. The aroma of tea is a way to release of the material energy accumulated during the decomposition of tea, tea gas is a broader category of energy release from tea, aroma is one of the most easily felt parts of tea gas.
Because of the need of growth, it is well known that plants are in the process of growth, plants from the soil absorption of the various components consist of a large number of nutrients, and through the air, sunlight, the role of the plant in the production of a lot of material, in terms of tea, rough points have tea polyphenols, catechin, cellulose, pectin, starch, amino acid, caffeine, protein, lipid, vitamin, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids and phenols, and subdivision is more, according to the experimental analysis, only with tea aroma related substances amounted to hundreds of types, elements in the periodic table of elements that are related to life matter have been measured in the tea leaves, the structure and function of many substances in tea are not fully understood.
When the plant dies, the continuous evolution decomposition function of plants must be decomposing plant, many of the substances in the plant will be released in the form of heat, odor, light and other energy release, some matter is decomposed into the soil. Tea gas is a general name for the release of energy during the decomposition of tea.
Because of the growing environment of tea tree, including latitude, altitude, soil, ecology and different tea varieties, different tree age etc, there are also differences in the category, content and proportion of the accumulation of substances in tea plant, thus there is a difference in the release of energy, those who have more energy must be strong.
We found a clear relationship between tea gas strength and age, tea area in practice, it is in this principle. Why the older tree age tea gas stronger, Stronger aroma, more resistant to brew in the same tea area? Because of the longer tree age, more accumulation of material, more energy release. Why the more the more south of the tea gas stronger? Because of the time and intensity of light, stronger photosynthesis, energy accumulation and release is also more. Tree age, tea area the latitude is most likely to intuitive description, in addition, soil fraction, especially the composition of trace elements in soil can also affect the energy accumulation of tea, therefore, the same latitude, elevation of tea will also have the intensity of tea gas.
Due to tea gas is performance of energy release during decomposition of tea, therefore, any kind of tea has tea gas. Because of the Pu er tea tree species and the ecological environment is quite good, old tree tea have the advantage of tree age, the production process is suitable for the late changes of tea, all these lead to the tea gas of Pu er tea is obviously superior to other types of tea, so it is more likely to be felt, this should be reason that the other types of tea less tea gas, and puer tea has tea gas.
Tea gas is the energy release of the decomposition of tea. This explains that why the fermentation tea of complete release of energy and Wet warehouse old tea tea gas is weak or no tea gas. And natural ventilation to storage the tea, energy release to speed up, tea gas will also weaken faster.
2. The experience of puer tea gas
The tea gas of Pu er tea is the expression of energy release of tea, one of the most easily perceived by the senses is the aroma. Aroma in the various aspects of the production of tea and manufactured goods, brewing and beverage process can be experienced. In terms of Pu er tea, Recognized as tea gas the strongest tea, after processing, dry maocha or tea cake will have a strong, lasting, deep aroma, when the boiling water into the teapot, the tea aroma began to distribute, there is sweet in the soup, the cup bottom have tea aroma after drinking. Dry tea, brew and drink, after drink, the most intuitive performance is that the bottom of the cup strong tea aroma is tea gas strength.
Second of the tea gas can experience the physical response. Drink dry preservation of ancient tree tea, body will have a fever, sweating response, according to different people's physical sensitivity of different parts of fever, the degree of difference, If there is a face hot and rubedo and perspire, back sweating fever, palm sweating, the foot fever sweating etc.
Tea gas is able to experience the third reaction is detoxification reaction. After drinking old tree tea, a lot of people will find urine taste more heavy, more smell.
Tea gas can experience the fourth reaction is the tea soup thickness, texture, resistance to brew tea. The older the tea tree, the more energy is absorbed, the release of energy is also stronger after processed into tea, when you drink, the old age of tea trees, tea soup texture, smooth thickness, foam resistance will be stronger.
Because the tea gas is the release of energy, this energy we human body can not be directly felt, therefore, the performance and function of tea gas still have a lot of places need further study.
