茶葉的鬆緊度如何影響沖泡?Influence of Tea Tightness On Brewing

Posted by CRM PPC on

茶,因製作工藝不同,其種類多樣,風味繁多,形狀也有異,有片狀、捲曲狀、顆粒狀、條索狀、餅狀、磚狀和沱狀等。其中顆粒、餅、磚和沱狀的茶都屬於緊實狀態,考慮到收存的方式,除了顆粒狀,可將餅、磚或沱拆成散狀或小塊或保留完整形。

鬆緊程度的不同會影響沖泡,因為在緊實的狀態下,茶葉浸泡在熱水中也不會很快散開,不利於滋味的釋放。鬆緊度高的,一般而言,沖泡的水溫略高,水溫高可以充分醒茶,讓緊結的茶容易散開,滋味釋放速度就會很快。不過,同時也要注意控制沖泡的節奏,注水進泡茶器慢,出湯要快。而鬆緊度低的茶葉,比較鬆散,在水溫適宜的情況下,浸泡時間就不宜過長。

茶葉的嫩度也會對沖泡有影響。嫩度高,沖泡要避免悶泡,水溫不宜高,使茶香自然而緩慢揮發。因為幼嫩的茶葉容易被高溫悶熟,如果悶泡時間過長,會使香氣不易顯露,水味則重。茶葉嫩度低,較粗壯的茶葉厚實硬脆,沖泡以“悶”為主,用高溫和悶透結合的浸泡方法,“高溫”悶泡,通過保持相對溫度,發揮茶品香氣,使茶葉滋味甘甜醇和。

泡茶需要多練習,熟能生巧,想要第一次就把茶泡好是不容易的,反复練習,你也許能找到最佳的沖泡方法,泡出最好的味道。

With the  numerous production processes in the tea industry, this results in a wide range of tea shapes and flavors. This includes: Flakes, Curls, Round, Strips, Cakes, Bricks and Dome (Tuo). Among them, pellets, cakes bricks and tu0-shaped teas are in a compact state. In consideration of the storage method, in addition to the granular form, the cakes, bricks or tuo-shaped teas can be disassembled into loose or small pieces or kept intact. 

The difference in the degree of tightness of the tea leaves will affect the brewing, because in a tight state, the tea will not unfurl quickly when soaked in hot water, which is not conducive to the release of flavor. For tea which are tightly rolled or curled, generally speaking, the water temperature for brewing has to be slightly higher. With higher water temperature, the tea leaves can fully unfurl, making the tightly packed tea to loosen up and increase the speed for the flavor to be released. However, at the same time, we must also pay attention to controlling the brewing rhythm and the speed of the water added. For tea which is not tightly shaped, the steeping time should not be too long with the suitable water temperature. 

The tenderness of the tea will also affect the brewing. Tea which has high tenderness, should avoid being overly steeped in the brewing vessel during brewing, and the water temperature should not be high, so that the tea fragrance will evaporate naturally and slowly. Because young tea leaves are easy to be over-brewed by high temperature, if the brewing time is too long, the aroma will not be easily revealed, resulting in a heavy brew. 

The thicker tea leaves are thick, hard and brittle. The tea leaves are low in tenderness. The steeping method combines high temperature and longer steeping duration resulting in a sweet and mellow brew. 

It takes practice to brew a good cup of tea. Practice makes perfect. It is not easy to brew tea well for the first time. With repeated practice, you may be able to find the best brewing method and brew the best cup of tea.
