What kind of tea does Tieguanyin belong to

Issuing time:2021-11-02 11:31

Tieguanyin is a clear soup with green leaves, so many people mistakenly believe that Tieguanyin is green tea, and some people think that Tieguanyin is black tea. In fact, Tieguanyin is neither black tea nor green tea. It is the representative of oolong tea (green tea) among the top ten famous teas in China.

"Tieguanyin" is not only the name of the tea, but also the name of the tea species. It belongs to the semi-fermented tea category. Tieguanyin has a unique "guanyin rhyme" with a delicate fragrance and elegant rhyme. After brewing, it has a natural orchid fragrance, a pure and strong taste, and a long-lasting fragrance. "Qipao has the reputation of lingering fragrance."

1. From the point of view of production process, appearance and tea soup, Tieguanyin is green tea

When it comes to the classification of a certain kind of tea, it is necessary to mention the tea technology. There are six major tea types in China-green tea, black tea, black tea, white tea, green tea, and yellow tea. Which kind of tea is classified according to the production process , Not according to the shape.

Green tea process: finishing-rolling-drying

Black tea process: withering-rolling-fermentation-drying

Tieguanyin craft: withering-making green-killing-rolling-drying

The "making green" in Tieguanyin's craft is a unique process for green tea, so Tieguanyin belongs to the category of green tea, which is a semi-fermented tea between green tea and black tea.

Dry green and shake green are both made green. Drying is to dissipate part of the heat of the leaves after withering, reduce the overall temperature, and redistribute water. To be a joke, drying the green is to let the leaves relax.

The next step is to shake the green. The main changes in the shake are the edges of the leaves, and the leaves collide with each other. The cells at the edges of the leaves are mechanically damaged and the cell contents are oxidized. Under the action of enzymes, complex biochemical reactions occur at the edges of the leaves. The green leaves are "green stalks, green belly, and red border".

In addition to the different craftsmanship, Tieguanyin's appearance and tea soup are also different from black tea and green tea.

Tea soup: green tea tea soup is mostly yellow, green and yellow; black tea tea soup is bright red and orange red; and Tieguanyin, as a green tea, tea soup is golden with green or orange. If the concentration of the tea soup is low, just look at the color of the soup. The color of Tieguanyin is closer to green tea. This is one of the reasons why some people mistakenly believe that Tieguanyin is green tea.

Appearance: Green tea is generally green and dark green; black tea is dark brown and oily; Tieguanyin is dark and sand green.

Therefore, Tieguanyin is different from green tea and black tea in terms of its production process, external and internal qualities. Tieguanyin is a green tea (oolong tea) with a red root. Don't say Tieguanyin is black tea or green tea in the future.

2. How to identify Tieguanyin

Through the above introduction, we understand that Tieguanyin is a green tea that many people love to drink. How to judge the quality of Tieguanyin? The following 5 points can be used to judge and identify.

1. Dry tea color

Tieguanyin dry tea is dark green, sandy green, and oily; if you encounter emerald green Tieguanyin, the quality is not good.

2. Observe the shape and listen to the sound

The good Tieguanyin grains are tightly knotted, and the leaf body is heavy. When the tea leaves are put into the teapot, the grains collide with the teapot, and you can hear a very loud, crisp, sonorous and powerful sound; the tea leaves of poor quality are loose, and the sound of the teapot is dumb.

3. Brew

Tieguanyin of regular craftsmanship cannot be fully expanded after the first and second bubbles. Tieguanyin of bad quality will explode like an explosion when exposed to water. This is a defect or reduction in craftsmanship, usually by rubbing this When the links are reduced, the bottom of the leaf will expand too quickly.

4. Tea soup

Good Tieguanyin tea soup is golden yellow and clear; while ordinary tea soup may be dark red in color with a little turbidity.

5. Smell the fragrance and taste the rhyme

The ancients had a wonderful saying: "If you don't taste the taste of nectar, smell the sacred fragrance first." Good Tieguanyin Guanyin rhyme orchid fragrance, sweet in the mouth, mellow taste, overflowing the whole mouth, the body fluid is good, the water quality is soft, not bitter or astringent; the poor quality Tieguanyin water is harder, and slightly bitter after brewing , And even other odors.
