Doctors recommend drinking at least two liters of water a day. Often people replace it with tea, believing that there are no differences. But research shows that this is misleading. Tea has a lot of caffeine, so you should not drink more than five cups a day. In our country, black and green varieties are the most common, but you can buy white tea and evaluate its benefits. It should be borne in mind that doctors do not advise drinking more than three cups daily. Failure to comply with this rule leads to the appearance of insomnia, increased nervous excitability.
Pros of white tea
The drink is used to combat:
- high blood pressure;
- high cholesterol;
- diabetes mellitus or excess blood sugar;
- diseases of the gastrointestinal tract;
Chinese doctors believe that white tea helps fight aging, radiation and cancer cells. When dried, the leaves do not lose valuable trace elements and antioxidants, so they have the maximum beneficial effect. White tea (Bai Cha) can be consumed in the afternoon and evening. In the first case, it allows you to cheer up and energize, in the second – to relax, prepare the body and mind for rest. An additional plus is the affordable price of white tea.
We brew the drink correctly
It is not enough to buy white tea – it must be properly prepared for use in order to preserve all its beneficial properties. The following types of dishes are suitable for brewing:
- Glass teapot;
- gaiwan (a special bowl with a lid and bowl);
- ceramic teapot.
Before brewing, the dishes must be doused with boiling water for 4-6 seconds. The strength is calculated based on 150 g per 150-200 ml of water (depending on the preferences of the consumer). Water should be soft and clean. This will allow you to feel the rich taste of an exquisite drink, so you should not dial it from the tap.
Bai Cha is infused for 30 seconds on the first brewing cycles. With each strait, this period should increase to a couple of minutes. The initial temperature should not exceed 80 degrees, then it will need to be increased to 100. Best of all, the taste and aroma are revealed during the first ten infusions.
