Novice to learn basic knowledge of making tea

Making tea is very particular about tea set, water, water temperature, environment, mood, and even dress (dress), etc. For most novices, they are new to making tea, so they don’t know how to make a good cup of tea. So, let's take a look at the basic knowledge of novices to make tea, so that novices can quickly master the basic knowledge of bubble tea.

Novices need to master the following basic knowledge to make tea:

Step 1: Selector

The first step in making tea is to choose the right tea set if you want to make good tea. Tea has different materials, generally divided into porcelain, pottery, purple sand, glass; tea set also has different shapes, divided into small pots, large pots, bowls, cups.

1. Green tea: glass

Green tea, especially the famous green tea, the most outstanding thing is the beauty of the posture of the tea leaves blooming in the water.

Like Biluochun, once brewed, the tea buds first sink into the bottom of the cup, and then make a "white cloud rolling, snowflakes flying" trend, through the glass, you can have a panoramic view. Like the famous tea among green tea, yellow tea, and white tea, the buds and leaves are tender and tender, and after brewing to watch the shape through the glass, it is also an important content of tea tasting.

2. Oolong tea: Kung Fu tea set

Kung Fu tea brewing method generally refers to the more elaborate brewing methods in Fujian and Guangdong, and the most vivid expression of color, fragrance and taste.

The outstanding feature of oolong tea is its high flavor and endless change of taste. Oolong tea focuses on smelling and taste, so it is advisable to brew quickly, and not to use large pots or cups. You can use a small purple clay pot or a small bowl. You can take a sip in the mouth and experience the beauty of oolong tea best.

3. Black tea: white porcelain bowl

Black tea is afraid of high temperature and cannot be brewed with boiling water.

Choose an open, slightly larger white porcelain lid bowl to dissipate heat quickly, and it is easy to grasp the soup time. After brewing, remember to open the lid to avoid boring sour black tea. Another advantage of the white porcelain bowl is that you can clearly appreciate the color of black tea soup. Black tea is not suitable for small teapots because of its good thermal insulation and slow heat dissipation.

4. Flower tea: big teapot

Flower tea can choose large porcelain pot or large glass pot.

The large pot can fully stretch and infiltrate the flowers, making it easier to extract the smell. Porcelain pots will not absorb the smell, and can better present the floral fragrance, so it is not suitable to use clay pots. The glass pot can see the dynamics of flowers and is suitable for enjoying when drinking tea with friends.

5. White tea: cover bowl, cook teapot

White tea is divided into white silver needle, white peony and birthday eyebrow.

White silver needles and white peonies are relatively tender, the water temperature is slightly lower, and the heat dissipates quickly with the bowl, which mainly highlights the fresh fragrance of white tea. Shoumei is relatively old, especially the old white tea, which is more mellow when boiled in a teapot with a low fire. The jujube and medicinal aroma of the old white tea are also more obvious.

6. Pu'er tea: Gaiwan, Zisha

Pu'er tea is divided into raw and cooked Pu'er and old and new Pu'er.

Pu'er tea can be used in porcelain bowls to present its delicate aroma and taste. If it is Pu'er raw tea or Pu'er cooked tea that has been stored, using the clay teapot can absorb some unpleasant odors generated by the storage, and the tea soup tastes smoother and warmer.

Step 2: Prepare water

Water quality has a great influence on tea soup.

Pure water, mineral water, filtered water, and tap water are relatively suitable for making tea. The tap water is hard because of the water quality, and may contain bleach or the like, so that the brewed tea is prone to smell, and the taste of the brewed tea is worse.

Boiling water requires boiling the water completely to 100°C.

Water boiling tools include water dispensers, electric kettles, clay pots, glass pots, iron pots, silver pots, etc. The benefits of iron pots and silver pots are naturally self-evident, but they are indeed somewhat extravagant. The minimum requirement for making tea is to boil it. Like some drinking fountains, it will jump to the insulation temperature when it reaches 90°C, and it does not boil completely.

The water temperature required for each type of tea is different. Although some teas require a temperature below 100°C, the water still needs to be boiled and then allowed to cool.

Green tea, yellow tea, black tea: 80-90℃

Oolong tea, Pu'er tea, black tea: 100℃

White tea: 80-90℃ white tea with high tenderness, 100℃ old tea

Step 3: Brewing

1. Tea preparation

Take out an appropriate amount of tea from the tea pot, you can first put it in the tea lotus to watch its mentality, dry smell the aroma, and have a general understanding of tea.

2. Thermostat

The order of the warm cup sanitary ware is to first pour boiling water into a pot or a bowl, then pour it into a fair cup, and then into a tea cup. This will help the tea set reach the proper temperature. At this time, put the tea in the pot and cover it After a while, the tea fragrance will be better distributed.

3. Wake up tea

The purpose of awakening tea is to warm and develop the tea leaves. There is a slow awakening process. Use 90°C water to quickly rush out. Remember that awakening tea does not need boiling water to avoid leaching too much tea and causing the second tea to fade. In addition, it can also wash away some inevitable dust during tea processing.

4. Brewing

Tea that doesn't need to be brewed in boiling water can be poured into a fair cup first, and the temperature of the water drops before brewing. As for the brewing time, it is necessary to experience and adjust in the actual tea brewing process, and the time for each tea brewing increases in turn.

The most interesting thing about making tea is the same tea. Different people can brew different flavors, and different brewing methods can also show different characteristics of tea. There is no absolutely correct way to make tea. As long as you master the basic principles, study, experience, and practice hard, you will definitely make good tea.
