On one occasion, an army entered Fujian from Jiangxi to cross the border Tongmu, occupying a tea factory, and the tea farmers fled to the mountains to escape the war. During the evasion period, the tea to be prepared could not be dried in a charcoal fire in time, and the excessive fermentation produced a red change. Subsequently, in order to recover the loss, the tea farmers adopted the flammable pine wood to heat and dry, forming a variety of tea with both concentrated pine and dried scent. This is the earliest black tea in history, also known as “LAPSANG SOUCHONG black tea”.
lapsang souchong tea health benefits
Under the combined action of caffeine and aromatic substances in black tea, the blood flow of the kidney is increased, the glomerular filtration rate is increased, the renal microvasculature is expanded, and the reabsorption of water by the renal tubule is inhibited, thereby contributing to an increase in urine output. This is beneficial to eliminate lactic acid, uric acid (related to gout), excessive salt (related to high blood pressure), harmful substances, etc., and to alleviate edema caused by heart disease or nephritis.
Anti-inflammatory and bactericidal benefits
The polyphenolic compounds in black tea have an anti-inflammatory benefits, and it has been found through experiments that catechins can be combined with single-cell bacteria to coagulate and precipitate proteins, thereby inhibiting and eliminating pathogenic bacteria. Therefore, it is beneficial to drink black tea for patients with bacterial dysentery and food poisoning. Folks also use strong tea to apply wounds, hemorrhoids and Hong Kong feet.

Through medical experiments, it was found that caffeine in black tea stimulates the nerve center by stimulating the cerebral cortex, which promotes refreshing and concentration of thinking, which makes the thinking reaction more sensitive and memory enhanced. It also has excitatory benefitss on the vascular system and heart, strengthening the heart. Beat, thereby speeding up blood circulation to promote metabolism, while promoting sweating and diuresis, thereby accelerating the excretion of lactic acid (a substance that makes muscles feel tired) and other old waste materials in the body to achieve the benefits of eliminating fatigue.
Shengjin heat-clearing benefits
Drinking black tea in summer can quench thirst and cool down because the polyphenols, sugars, amino acids and pectins in tea react chemically with the mouth, and stimulate the secretion of saliva, causing the mouth to feel moist and produce a refreshing sensation; Control the body temperature center of the hypothalamus, regulate body temperature, it also stimulates the kidney to promote the excretion of heat and dirt, maintaining the physiological balance in the body.
Antioxidant, anti-aging benefits
The results show that antioxidants in green tea and black tea can completely destroy the path of chemical substances in cancer cells. Dr. Murray Mitterman, director of cardiovascular epidemiology at the Boston Beth Israel Deaconess Medical School, said: “The efficacy of black tea and green tea is roughly the same, but the antioxidants in the mountain are much more complicated than green tea, especially for the heart.

(1) Picking of young tea trees: Under the condition of normal fertilizer and water management, after two stereotypes and pruning, the tree height can reach more than 45 cm in the late spring tea period. After the third shaping, the tea tree is as high as 60 cm. , can use the method of “topping and leaving leaves” to pick. The standard of retention is spring tea leaves two, three leaves, one bud one and two leaves; summer tea leaves two leaves, one bud one and two leaves; autumn tea leaves one leaf, mining one bud one and two leaves. In the process of picking young tea trees, we should pay attention to the principle of “topping and raising the edge, collecting high and raising low, collecting and cultivating thin”. After three times of pruning and topping leaves, young tea trees can be managed with adult tree picking measures when the tree is as high as 60-80 cm and the tree width is about 130 cm.
(2) Picking of adult tea trees: Adult tea trees should adhere to the principle of “taking mining as the mainstay, combining mining and mining, and timely mining”, so that it is possible to obtain higher economic benefits in a long period of time. Spring tea is a famous tea raw material, mostly single bud, one bud and one leaf initial exhibition or one bud and one leaf exhibition. If 5% reaches the mining standard, tea can be collected. The famous tea requires fine and even raw materials. Generally, one bud and one leaf are first picked, one bud and one leaf exhibition or single bud. Bulk red tea, green tea, and red broken tea require medium tenderness. Generally, the first and second leaves are harvested and the paired leaves are picked. Oil tea and Liubao tea require the use of basic mature shoots and pairs of two to three leaves. It is generally possible to use the method of “retaining fish leaves throughout the year” or “spring and summer tea leaves, leaf leaves for autumn tea, timely and batchwise, and retention according to standards”.
(3) Mechanical tea picking: In recent years, tea picking machines promoted in large-scale tea farms in China have two types: double stretcher type, mobile type, spiral hob cutting type, tea machine and horizontal rotary knife cutting type tea picking machine. The picking quality of these two tea picking machines is good, the operation is convenient, and it can adapt to the tea garden operation of various terrains, and the work efficiency is about 10 times higher than that of manual tea picking. In the trial use of tea gardens that promote tea picking, the fertilizer cultivation measures need to be strengthened.
(4) Fresh leaf management: The fresh leaves collected should be transported to the tea processing factory in time. After being checked by the special person, they should be placed in the clean and shady room as soon as possible, and the indoor ventilation should be kept as much as possible. The container for conveying fresh leaves is made of a bamboo basket with good air permeability and cleanness. The capacity of the basket is preferably 50-100 kg, avoiding extrusion during transportation and reducing damage. It is generally required that fresh leaves will enter the factory within 4 hours after picking. If it cannot be sent to the tea factory in time, be sure to avoid sun and rain, and keep it fresh and clean.
