Characteristics of Spring Teas
Spring teas possess unique characteristics including taste, flavor, texture, and aftertaste differentiating them from summer and autumn teas. For instance, spring teas yield milder flavor and taste. While it may sound strange, the flavor and fragrance of spring teas are reminiscent of spring itself.
Despite summer or autumn teas, spring-harvested teas are usually milder in taste without any harsh or vegetal flavors. Flavors are delicate resulting in aftertaste and texture making for a distinct experience that can be difficult to describe. In some countries, the early harvest teas are valued for their subtler and quieter qualities that allow for appreciation of more understated aspects of tea.
In the tea world, the most important aspect of spring tea is its fragrance. In spite of commenting on the taste of teas, one compliments it by describing its scent which is similar to the spring season. The presence of exotic fruits and flower is prominent, particularly in case of peach oolong tea. The fragrance of spring tea evokes the essence of youth and vitality. Each tea cultivator expresses a desire to capture the scent of their farm and tea forest during the full bloom of spring. Their aim is to maintain the aroma that tea absorbs from the spring air so that they expand when dry leaves are brewed.
Spring tea usually offers a delicate and refined taste compared to summer and autumn teas. These teas possess velvety, silky, or creamy textures without any harshness on the palate. Spring teas exhibit sparkling sensations depending on the tea. The texture gradually intensifies with each sip and is highly coveted for its smoothness.
The caffeine content in the tea varies depending on the type of tea. Generally, black tea tends to have more caffeine than white and green tea. Oolong tea is considered somewhere in the middle. Moreover, harvesting time, tea variety, steeping time, and water temperature also influence the caffeine content of tea. Teas harvested in the spring tend to have more caffeine content than tea of other seasons.
Benefits of Spring Teas
They Keep You Hydrated
Teas are refreshing beverages that provide hydration to the body. All types of teas, whether they are spring, summer, or autumn teas keep you well hydrated. Teas are prepared from water and only a small percentage of tea leaves, making them an excellent way to achieve your daily water intake goals. Moreover, teas are packed with antioxidants which make them a refreshing alternative to drinking plain water.
There has been a longstanding belief that teas do not hydrate your body owing to their diuretic effects due to the presence of caffeine. In fact, the caffeine content in tea is relatively low when steeped appropriately and diuretic effects are negligible. Hence, drinking tea can effectively contribute to keeping you hydrated.
Possess Anti-aging Effects
Tea polyphenols contain antioxidant properties that provide protection against free radicals and reduce the risk of oxidative stress. Free radicals are substances that cause cell damage and aim to steal your youth. Thanks to the antioxidant properties of teas which neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals, prevent cellular damage, and slow the process of aging.
Reduce the Risk of Heart Diseases
Several factors such as inactivity, fat deposition, and high blood pressure lead to the clogging of blood vessels and increase the risk of stroke and heart disease. It appears that you will require assistance with clearing these deposited fats. Tea polyphenols have the potential to effectively reduce lipids, widen blood vessels, and help repair damaged vessels. Studies revealed that tea consumption resulted in a reduced risk of fatal heart attacks.
May Boost Your Immunity
Teas are rich in antioxidants and other phytochemicals with potent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. They help prevent infections, reduce inflammation, and fight against various illnesses. These antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties of teas are credited for boosting immune health.
Spring teas shine in high levels of polyphenols and can increase gastrointestinal stimulation resulting in stomachache, dry mouth, diarrhea, or constipation. It is therefore suggested not to drink spring tea immediately and need to give it some time to undergo auto-oxidation.
