Studies show if drinking tea regularly reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s and diabetes, plus you will also have healthier gums and teeth as well as stronger bones. Tea is rich in flavonoids, which is a class of antioxidants. “True teas,” like green, white, black, oolong teas, come from the leaves of the tea plant d called Camellia sinensis. Rooibos and chamomile, which a lot of us call herbal teas, are actually tisanes or infusions. The differences in true teas result from how the tea plant’s leaves are processed. Black teas are exposed to oxygen or oxidized a few hours before they are rolled and dried, deepening their color, while green and white teas are simply steamed, rolled and dried. Think of oolongs as hybrids; their leaves are partially oxidized before drying. Regardless of the variety, if you want to maximise the power of its flavonoids, drink tea freshly brewed. If you want to keep a batch of cold tea in your refrigerator, try adding a little lemon juice. The citric acid and vitamin C of lemon, lime or orange, will help preserve the flavonoids.

Types of tea and steeping time

Brits' obsession with tea in statistics

Black tea

The complex flavors of tea varies widely with processing and region just like with wines. Darjeeling (India) is slightly spicy, with grape and almond overtones, while Chinese types, such as smoke-dried Lapsang Souchong, tend to be earthier. Drinking black tea regularly, 3 to 5 cups a day, will reduce heart attacks and strokes, as well as lower your rates of lung and colon cancer. It may also reduce risks of diabetes and osteoporosis and also inhibit bacteria that causes tooth decay.

  • Steeping time: Use boiling water that has cooled just enough to lose its boil and steep 3 to 5 minutes.

White tea

These are fairly rare and expensive because they are only produced from new buds and leaves. White teas have a golden colour light body plus a pure “tea” flavor without astringency as well as a hint of sweetness. The leaves of White Peony open up and look like a peony when steeped, while Ceylon White (Sri Lanka) has pine and honey notes. White teas contain more of a flavonoid called epigallocatechin gallate compared to other true teas, which may help fight cancer and prevent heart disease.

  • Steeping time: Use boiling water that has cooled for a couple of minutes (to about 185°F) and steep for 2 to 4 minutes.

Green tea

Green teas have a mildly glass, vegetal flavour, with a bit of astringent mouthfeel. Oversteeped brews can be bitter. Chinese types include Dragonwell, prized for its trace of chestnut flavors, and Jasmine (fragrant with added jasmine flowers). Try Japan’s smooth Sencha or toasty Genmaicha, blended with toasted rice grains. Drinking it is associated with lowering rates of pancreatic and colon cancers as well as reduce the risk or Alzheimer’s.

  • Steeping time: Use boiling water that has cooled for a couple of minutes (to about 185°F) and steep for 2 to 4 minutes.

Herbal tea

The aromas and flavours of these teas echo the leaves, flowers, roots or seeds from which they’re derived. Chamomile has flowery, applelike notes while hibiscus has sour, berrylike fruit flavors. Chamomile tea has been long known to aid sleep and may also help in soothing upset stomach as well as calm colicky babies. Hibiscus tea is rich in vitamin C and may help reduce blood pressure.

  • Steeping time: Use boiling water and steep 3 to 5 minutes.

Oolong tea

The flavour and colour of oolong tea can widely vary, depending on source and length of oxidation. Lighter ones like Pouchong, are just like green tea, while darker oolongs like Formosa have characteristics more like black tea. Studies suggest that this tea provides health benefits similar to black and green teas. A type of flavonoid in oolongs called chafuroside may help fight inflammation and help inhibit the development of intestinal cancers.

  • Steeping time: Darker oolongs: same as black tea. Lighter oolongs: same as green tea.

Brewing your tea

If you’ve got your tea and your mug and ready to relax, then brew your tea, use fresh water free of any odds tastes or odours. Use a teaspoon of tea on each serving, plus another for the pot. Pour water over your tea and steep accordingly. In a typical infusion, caffeine is extracted from the leaves first, normally within the first 30 seconds, while other more complex antioxidants will take a little longer.

Remember that tea bags infuse quicker compared to loose leaf teas due to greater surface are. Always remember that loose leaf tea will keep for a few months or even longer if you will keep it in an airtight container in a dry, dark and cool place. Avoid plastic or glass containers as much as possible and also do not refrigerate or freeze your tea. Tea that’s mishandled or old will lose its aroma, colour and briskness.
