1. Drinking Tea Can Give Your Body the Vitamins It Needs
Tea contains important vitamins. Vitamins are divided into water-soluble vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins. Tie Guan Yin tea contains water-soluble vitamins like vitamin C and B vitamins, which can be directly absorbed by the body. Therefore, drinking Tie Guan Yin tea is a great way to add water-soluble vitamins to your diet. Drink this tea regularly to give your body the vitamins it needs.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, can improve the body's resistance and immunity. Tie Guan Yin tea has high levels of vitamin C. Every 100 grams of regular green tea contains about 100mg to 250 mg of vitamin C. Tie Guan Yin tea contains up to 360 mg or more. That's more than lemons, citrus, and other fruit. High quality Tie Guan Yin is very green. Red Tie Guan Yin is a low quality tea and does not contain nearly as much vitamin C, less than 100 mg per 100 grams of tea. Therefore, the higher the quality, or the greener the tea, the nutritional value is relatively higher. As long as you are drinking a high quality Tie Guan Yin, you can meet the daily requirement of vitamin C just by drinking tea!
Tie Guan Yin also contains an array of B vitamins such as B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Pantothenic Acid), B5 (Nicotinic Acid), and B11 (Folic Acid). B vitamins are necessary for your body's energy, metabolism, immune system, and nervous system.
Just like fat-soluble vitamins are insoluble in water, it's also hard for the Tie Guan Yin tea to absorb in the boiling water. Therefore, experts are now proposing that we eat the tea to make up for its insolubility. They are about to make Tie Guan Yin into an ultra-fine powder, that can be added to a variety of foods, such as Tie Guan Yin tofu, noodles, cakes, candy, and ice cream. By eating these foods, your body will be better able to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins contained in Tie Guan Yin tea.
