The choose and buy of the tea is not easy, to get good tea, need to master a lot of knowledge, the stand or fall of tea, mainly from the color, aroma, taste and form four aspects to identify, but for ordinary tea, buy tea, normally only to watch the shape and color of dried tea smell dry fragrance, judge the quality of tea is more difficult. Here is a rough introduction of identification method of dry tea.
The appearance of dry tea, mainly from five respects, namely tender degrees, cords, colour and lustre, whole and clarity.
Tenderness, is to determine the basic factors of quality, the so-called “dry see appearance, wet leaves”, is refers to tenderness. General tender degree of good tea, easy to comply with the requirement of the shape of the tea (such as longjing “light, flat, smooth, straight”). In addition, you can have from tea without front seedling to identify. Good feng miao, pekoe revealed, said good, do manual work is all right. If the raw material tender degree of difference, do manual work is again good, also no feng miao and pekoe tea bar. But not only from the fuzzy judge his tenderness, how much, because of the specific requirements of the various kinds of tea, such as the great lion peak longjing is surface without balance. Moreover, pastel easy to counterfeit, artificial do go up a lot. Bud Ye Nen degrees to do judgment more pastel, only suitable for maofeng tea, maojian tea, silver needle tea “fuzz”.
Need to mention here is that the most fresh tender leaves, also get a bud leaf exhibition at the beginning of the practice of one-sided picking bud heart is inappropriate. Because heart bud is the part of growth is not perfect, contains ingredients is not comprehensive, especially chlorophyll content is very low. So should not be simple just for the sake of tenderness, bud tea.
Article 2, Mr.
Cords is all kinds of tea sets some certain shape specifications, such as improving bar, gunpower round, flat, red broken tea longjing tea granule shape and so on. Generally elongated tea, the elastic, bend straight, strong, round flat, thin weight; See particle elastic circular tea, well, weight and empty; Oblate tea whether level off is smooth degree and conform to the specifications. In general, cords and heavy body bone, round (except oblate tea) and straight, that tender raw materials, workmanship, quality; If loose shape, flat (except oblate tea), broken, and the smell of smoke, coke, that old raw materials, poor workmanship, inferior quality.
3, colour and lustre
Tea colour and lustre and material tender degree and processing technology has a close relationship. All kinds of tea has a certain colour and lustre requirements, such as black tea black oil moisten, green in green tea, oolong tea, black tea, brown black oil color, etc. But no matter what kind of tea, tea requirements of colour and lustre is consistent, the luster bright, fresh oil moisten, if have different color, different shades, dark without light, show different raw materials and old nun, do manual work is bad, bad quality.
The colour and lustre of tea and tea producing area and season have a lot to do. Such as mountains, green tea, green and slightly yellow color, fresh and bright; Low camellia or ground tea color dark green with light.
Tea process, due to improper technique, also tend to make the color deterioration.
Buy tea, should according to the specific buy tea. Longjing longjing, for example, one of the best lion peak, the remarkably tea is not green, but there is a natural brown color, a light yellow. This is the one big characteristic of lion peak longjing, on colour and lustre is significantly different from any other longjing. Because of lion peak longjing price high, tea farmers will produce this kind of colour and lustre to pretend to be the lion peak longjing. Method is a little bit in the process of making tea Fried too and make the leaves turn yellow. Is the difference between true and false, it’s the lion peak symmetry is bright and clean, yellowish green, with fragrant tea; Fake lions peak is empty Angle of loose, coarse, slant yellow, tea with Fried beans. Without comparison for many times, really is not so easy to judge. But once the brew, difference is very obvious. Pool fire fake lions peak, there’s absolutely no longjing fragrant fresh fragrance.
4, the broken
The broken is the shape of tea and broken broken degree, even, for good, broken broken for times.
Comparative review, standard of tea is the tea in a pan (usually of wood), make the tea under the effect of rotating force, in accordance with the size, weight, thickness, shape, the broken formation has a hierarchical order. The thick at the top, superfine heavy firm focused on middle, broken broken small deposit in the bottom. All the tea, in the middle of tea more as well. The upper is usually thick more than the old leaf, with lighter taste, more shallow water; The lower broken tea, often having too strong taste, after brewing looked darker.
Basically see whether in tea mixed with tea, tea, tea dust, tea seed, and in the production process in bamboo, wood, lime, sand inclusion, such as how many. Studs are good tea, do not contain any inclusions.
In addition, you can through the tea to identify dry ointment. No matter what kind of tea can have peculiar smell. Every tea has a particular aroma, wet and dry sweet also have different, need to be decided according to the specific situation, green smoke gas, coke and cooked frowsty is not desirable.
Most easily distinguish the quality of the tea is brewing after taste flavor, aroma, and leaf tea liquor color. So if you allow, as far as possible when purchasing tea after brewing to give it a try. If some special preference of tea, it is better to find some of the tea materials, shape, the characteristics of accurate understanding of its color, smell and taste the tea every time buy all compare to each other, so more, would be easy to quickly master the key.
