What are the benefits and contraindications of Pu'er tea?
Pu'er tea is one of the teas we often drink in our daily lives. It is best known for its stomach-nourishing function. Today we will start from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine and take a look at the functions and drinking taboos of Pu'er tea.

From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, Pu'er tea is red in color and belongs to fire. It is warm in nature and slightly bitter in taste. It has a light taste and belongs to the spleen and earth. Generally speaking, it has the effect of warming and nourishing the spleen and stomach and diuresis. Its growing environment is in Yunnan, which has many high mountains and the thickest earth atmosphere. Therefore, Pu 'erh tea has a thicker earthy atmosphere than other teas. Therefore, Pu'er tea must have a stronger effect on warming the spleen and stomach and aiding digestion than other teas. Pu'er Newborn Tea has a bitter and astringent taste, strong purgative power, and stronger digestive power. Drinking it on an empty stomach is really difficult for ordinary people to bear. The superior ripe tea has a mellow and mild taste, a mild and long-lasting power, and is easier to bear. It will become warmer after a few brews. It has a distinct taste and is extremely useful for people with spleen deficiency and damp constitution.

The efficacy and function of Pu'er tea

The efficacy of Pu'er tea has been recorded as early as in the "Compendium of Materia Medica". Traditional Chinese medicine believes that Pu'er tea has the functions of clearing away heat, cooling off heat, detoxifying, digesting, removing fat, diuresis, laxative, expectorant, dispelling wind and relieving the exterior, relieving cough and promoting fluid production. It has the effects of increasing strength and prolonging life. And because Pu'er tea has gone through the transformation process from raw tea to cooked tea, the raw tea has the effects of dispelling wind, relieving the surface, clearing the head, etc., while the cooked tea has the effects of lowering qi, diuresis, laxative, etc. Therefore, Pu'er has always been praised as a good medicine with both attack and nourishment.

There have been nearly 20 studies on the effects of tea in modern medicine: stomach warming, weight loss, lipid lowering, prevention of arteriosclerosis, prevention of coronary heart disease, blood pressure lowering, anti-aging, anti-cancer, lowering blood sugar, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, reducing tobacco poisoning, Reduce heavy metal poisoning, resist radiation, prevent dental caries, improve eyesight, aid digestion, resist toxins, prevent constipation, relieve hangover, etc. Among them, Pu 'er tea is particularly outstanding in its functions of warming the stomach, losing weight, lowering fat, preventing arteriosclerosis, preventing coronary heart disease, lowering blood pressure, anti-aging, anti-cancer and lowering blood sugar.

How to drink to get the most out of Pu’er tea

On the one hand, when purchasing Pu'er tea, you must recognize the geographical indications. On the other hand, the health benefits of Pu'er tea must be brewed and consumed correctly.

In real life, although some people say that Pu'er tea tastes best when it is boiled and drunk, experts clearly point out that Pu'er tea is better brewed and is best not to be boiled and drank. This is because when Pu'er tea is boiled and drunk, the concentration can easily be too high, which can affect the spleen and stomach. At the same time, it is not easy to control the aroma and taste. Only some old tea with thick leaves can be boiled and drank, but the time should be controlled within 3 to 5 minutes, and the boiling time must not be too long.

It can be seen that Pu'er tea is suitable for brewing and drinking, but not for boiling and drinking. Long-term boiling and drinking will damage the spleen and stomach.

What are the taboos in drinking Pu'er tea?

1. It is not advisable to drink strong Pu'er tea on an empty stomach. It is advisable to drink it at the right time.

In addition, Pu'er tea brewed in a thermos cup should not be drunk regularly, and overnight Pu'er tea should not be drunk.

Hua Tuo, a famous doctor in ancient times, put forward the argument that "bitter tea, if eaten for a long time, will benefit the mind".

6. Pu'er tea should be drunk warm, not hot or cold. "Drinking weak tea warm will keep you young." The appropriate temperature for drinking Pu'er tea should be 25 to 50 degrees and no more than 60 degrees. Regular drinking of cold Pu'er tea will have side effects on the mouth, throat, and intestines of people, especially those with poor spleen and stomach. Therefore, warm and hot drinks are recommended for health preservation.

7. It is taboo to drink Pu'er tea lightly, not to drink strong. Long-term drinking of too strong Pu'er tea will cause metabolic dysfunction of the human body, weaken the gastrointestinal absorption of iron in food, and cause anemia or vitamin B deficiency.

8. Avoid drinking large amounts of Pu'er tea before and after meals. Drinking large amounts of Pu'er tea before meals will dilute saliva and affect food digestion. Drinking after meals should be done at the right time and not blindly. It is best to leave one hour apart before and after meals to truly achieve the best effects of health care.

9. Drink Pu'er tea in moderation before going to bed. It is best not to drink Pu'er tea (raw tea) 2 hours before going to bed. It will cause mental excitement, affect sleep, and even insomnia. But you can drink mild cooked tea in small amounts.

10. Avoid drinking inferior tea or spoiled tea. Pay attention to the environment when storing Pu'er tea to avoid absorbing odor, otherwise it will easily absorb moisture and become moldy. Deteriorated tea contains a large number of substances and germs that are harmful to the human body.

11. Avoid brewing Pu'er tea too many times. Brewing Pu'er tea too many times will soak some trace substances harmful to health in the tea into the tea soup, which is harmful to health.
