What Does Tea Have?

As we know, tea is a popular healthy drink around the world. We would like to discuss what makes tea healthy and what health properties it has in general.

1 Tea polyphenols
Tea polyphenols are a major chemical component in tea. It is the general name of more than 30 kinds of phenolic substances in tea, with an astringent taste. Southern tea, summer tea, tender tea leaf and green tea have the highest content of tea polyphenols. Tea polyphenols have anti-ageing and anti-radiation effects.

2 Amino Acid
L-theanine is a type of amino acid which our human body doesn’t produce. It’s rich in tea. Amino acid occupies about 1-4% of the dry tea leaves. The amino acids in tea are highly soluble in water and have a fresh sweet taste, similar to the fresh and refreshing taste of MSG. It’s rare in plants. L-theanine may affect the levels of serotonin and dopamine, which influence mood, sleep, and emotion, and cortisol, which helps the body deal with stress. Generally speaking, it is one of the reasons we feel relaxed when having tea.

3 Alkaloids
The alkaloid in tea is mainly caffeine. The content of caffeine in tea is between 2% and 5%. After the tea is brewed, about 80% of the caffeine can be dissolved in boiling water. It can boost your energy and make you excited. Also, caffeine has diuretic effects. Therefore, tea is a good stimulant and diuretic.

4 Vitamins
Tea contains a variety of vitamins, mainly vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, folic acid, niacin, vitamin E, etc., are indispensable nutrients for the human body. They cooperate with caffeine and tea polyphenols to produce a pharmacological effect, which can play a more important role than simple ingredients.

These are only a few common healthy properties. Tea does not only brings us a variety of flavours and aromas but also improves our health and wellbeing. It’s a lifestyle we all can benefit from.
