Suitable for the refrigerator
Green tea and light-flavored oolong tea.
Among the six major types of tea, green tea is the most susceptible to spoilage and extra care is required when preserving. Must be sealed and packaged and then placed in the refrigerator.
There is also a clear aroma type of Tieguanyin and Fenghuang Dancong tea, which can be stored in the refrigerator.
Not suitable for the refrigerator.
Pu'er tea, traditional craft oolong tea, aged old tea and white tea.
Puer tea, white tea and black tea, their drinking value is reflected in time aging.Putting this kind of tea in the refrigerator, in addition to the above-mentioned moisture problem, under the low temperature environment of the refrigerator, the activity of biological enzymes in the tea will also decrease, which will affect the conversion efficiency.
Traditional Oolong tea, such as Wuyi Rock Tea, Phoenix Monocotyledon and Roasted Tieguanyin, is already very stable after roasting, and does not need to be stored in the refrigerator.
Jasmine tea, due to its own fragrance, will gradually become thinner if placed in the refrigerator. But there is a special case here,Bi Tan Piao Xue. Bitan Piaoxue added jasmine in the later stage of the production process, and properly placed it in the refrigerator, which is conducive to the preservation of the fragrance of flowers, but the fragrance will also be lost for a long time.
As the case may be.
Studies have shown that temperature has a great influence on the storage quality of red crushed tea. The tea leaves are stored at a lower temperature (0-5 ° C) for one year, the quality components change little, and the moisture only increases by 2.11%.For the tea leaves treated at room temperature, after one year of storage, the reduction of theaflavins content was as much as 18 times higher than that of the low temperature treatment, while the increase of theaflavins was 2.76 times.
This keeps the tea leaves stored at low temperature fresh and mellow, while the tea soup stored at room temperature turns brown and the flavor becomes dull. Since black tea is a fully fermented tea, it is allowed to be stored at room temperature in most cases, and has little effect on the quality of the tea.
If it's not a fridge dedicated to storing tea, it usually has some other food in it. And tea is extremely easy to absorb the taste, so when storing, be sure to seal the tea leaves well.
