Tea Production

...REPORT ON GREEN TEA IIFT 2012-14 VIKUL TYAGI (46) MBA (IB) IIFT KOLKATA ABOUT TEA Tea is an evergreen plant that grows mainly in tropical and subtropical climates. Tea plants are propagated from seed and by cutting; it takes about 4 to 12 years for a tea plant to bear seed, and about three years before a new plant is ready for harvesting Fig. 1 Leaves of a tea plant In addition to a zone 8 climate or warmer, tea plants require at least 127 cm (50 inches) of rainfall a year and prefer acidic soil. Many high-quality tea plants are cultivated at elevations of up to 1,500 m (4,900 ft) above sea level: at these heights, the plants grow more slowly and acquire a better flavor. Only the top 1-2 inches of the mature plant are picked. These buds and leaves are called "flushes". A plant will grow a new flush every seven to 15 days during the growing season, and leaves that are slow in development always produce better-flavored teas. A tea plant will grow into a tree of up to 16 m (52 ft) if left undisturbed, but cultivated plants are pruned to waist height for ease of plucking. Two principal varieties are used: the China plant, used for most Chinese, Formosan and Japanese teas and the clonal Assam tea plant, used in most Indian and other teas (but not Darjeeling). Within these botanical varieties, there are many strains and modern Indian clonal varieties. Leaf size is the chief criterion for the......

The accepted methods of grading tea relate to the grading of Black tea only. The two main factors which affect the grading of tea are: 1. The size of the tea leaves: Whole, large tea leaves gain a higher grading 2. The method of production of the tea: There are 2 methods of manufacturing tea.Manufacturing of tea and these are the traditional method of production of tea by hand and the more modern mechanized method which is aptly called the CTC process (Crush, Tear and Curl). It is considered that the mechanized method damages the tea leaves and as a result the tea leaves bear a lower grading. In respect of Green tea and Oolong tea, as opposed to black tea, no single accepted method of grading has been developed. For these teas there exists a whole range of grading systems and these differ from tea grower to tea grower, from tea growing region to tea growing region and so on.

Chinese Tea

...Tieguanyin Tea simplified Chinese: 铁观音 (tiěguānyīn) traditional Chinese: 鐵觀音 Jyutping: tit3 gwun1 yam1 Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Thih-koan-im; literally "Iron Guanyin or Iron Avalokiteśvara" or 'Tikuanyin' / 'Tit Koon Yum' Tieguanyin, Guanyin, Guanshiyin, are the names of the Chinese Goddess for over 20 centuries. Since then, Japan name Guanyin as Kannon, in Korea as Guam-eum. For about 200 years to 300 years, Chinese Buddhism Guanyin also influenced the south Asia nations and the south Asia people re-named Guanyin to bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara, Mahāyāna Buddhism. The name of the Chinese tea is translated in English as "Iron Guanyin", and sometimes as "Iron Goddess of Mercy." These two names are accurate. The deity has long been given a female identity in Chinese folk culture, although the original Chinese name carries no suggestion of the male-or-female-nature. A more accurate translation of the reference to the deity should be (the One) Observing the Voice of the People.Other spellings and names include "Ti Kuan Yin," "Tit Kwun Yum," "Ti Kwan Yin," "Iron Buddha," "Iron Goddess Oolong," and "Tea of the Iron Bodhisattva."

Tea as Tea Bags

...INTRODUCTION Tea is created by using the leaves of a plant known as CAMELLIS SINENSIS. This plant is a native to China, South Asia and Southeast Asia but is now found all over the world. Tea-drinking can be traced back to the 10th century BC in China before it was spread to Korea and Japan. But in 1903, the creation of the first tea bags were recorded. It was then in 1904 that these were shipped around the world and they are infact still used until now. They are not only cheaper, but also they easier to find and to use in making tea. The reason for their more affordable price compared to loose tea leaves is because most companies use fannings or left-overs of larger tea leaves after they are gathered to be sold. Basically, this drink is made by brewing tea leaves to create an extract. Due to the chlorophylls and other pigments in the leaves, the extract commonly appears with a brown color. In www.webexhibits.org/causesofcolor/7H.html, it was mentioned that the aflavin is the reddish-brown pigment found in tea. It is an example of a flavonoid which acts to create color. This reaserch is being done to find out the potency of the extract of the leaves from the plant CAMELLIS SINENSIS as an ink. Nowadays, ink is a pigment in a liquid or paste form used as colorants and dyes. Also, they are becoming more and more expensive because of their increasing purposes. Our research aims to produce this ink as a cheaper alternative to those commercial ones. Compared to the ink we......

Tea Culture

...Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub native to Asia.[3] After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world.[4] There are many different types of tea; some teas, like Darjeeling and Chinese greens, have a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavour,[5] while others have vastly different profiles that include sweet, nutty, floral, or grassy notes. Tea originated in the southwest of China, possibly as a medicinal drink.[6] It became a popular drink throughout China during the Tang dynasty, and tea drinking spread to other East Asian countries. Portuguese priests and merchants introduced it to the West during the 16th century.[7] During the 17th century, drinking tea became fashionable among Britons, who started large-scale production and commercialization of the plant in India to bypass a Chinese monopoly at that time.[8] The phrase herbal tea usually refers to infusions of fruit or herbs made without the tea plant, such as steeps of rosehip, chamomile, or rooibos. These are also known as tisanes or herbal infusions to distinguish them from "tea" as it is commonly construed. The Chinese character for tea is 茶, originally written with an extra stroke as 荼 (pronounced tu, used as a word for a bitter herb), and acquired its current form during the Tang Dynasty as used in the eighth-century treatise on tea, The Classic of Tea.[9][10][11] The word is pronounced......

Green Tea

...Mary Verdure B. Tolentino Writer/Doctor Green Tea, Green Life Possibly one of the most celebrated successes in the field of modern day integrative medicine is the discovery that green tea has cardioprotective, immune-boosting, cancer fighting and slimming properties. So many extraordinary benefits from an herbal remedy that has been a staple of traditional Chinese, Japanese, Ayurvedic, and Korean medicine for hundreds of years! Colors of Life All teas regardless of color basically came the same plant, Camellia sinensis. It derives its color from the fermentation process: hence there are green, white, red, oolong and black teas with green and white unfermented and having the most antioxidant power. Steeping Technique The benefits of green tea are dependent not just on fermentation but on brewing time as well. Steeping 1-2.5 grams of dried in one cup of water for 3-5 minutes will draw out the alkaloids or xanthins similar to the caffeine in coffee. This is responsible for the “stimulant” effect of tea. However, steeping green tea for 15-20 minutes maximizes the extraction of the catechins which are very potent anti-oxidants. Green tea will have a slightly bitter taste if steeped this long and will also be an effective diuretic and anti-diarrheal. The Benefits of Green Tea If you prefer to drink or eat your medicine then green tea is for you especially when you are older, stressed and had a history of smoking or alcohol consumption.
