Six benefits of drinking Tieguanyin tea


Tieguanyin can refresh the mind, and its function is mainly in the caffeine in tea. Caffeine has the function of exciting the central nervous system, improving thinking and improving efficiency.Therefore, after drinking tea, you can be sleepless, refresh, trouble, relieve tiredness, clear mind, and improve thinking, which can significantly improve the oral defense ability and the response of mathematical thinking. At the same time, because Anxi Tieguanyin contains polyphenols and other compounds, it offsets the adverse effects of pure caffeine on the human body.

2.Cool down the heat

Tea is a good drink for heatstroke prevention.Li Shizhen's "Compendium of Materia Medica" contains: "The tea is bitter and cold, the fire can be reduced most, the fire is a disease, and the fire is cleared. The warm drink is reduced by the cold, and the hot drink is lifted by the fire."In the midsummer days, when the sun is hot and the summer is hot, you can feel a cool body and mind when you drink a cup of cool Tieguanyin or a cup of hot iron Guanyin.

This is because tea soup contains tea polyphenols, sugars, amino acids, pectins, vitamins, etc., which react with saliva in the mouth to moisturize the mouth, so it can play a role in thirst.

At the same time, due to the action of caffeine in Tieguanyin, a large amount of energy is emitted from the skin pores of the human body.


In the Anxi folk, Tieguanyin has long been used to treat dysentery and stomach pain. There are also many records in ancient Chinese medical books that use tea to treat bacterial dysentery, red peony, white diarrhea, acute enteritis, and acute gastritis.Why does Tieguanyin play a role in sterilization and stagnation? Mainly tea polyphenol compounds. Since the tea polyphenol enters the gastrointestinal tract, it can relax the nervous function of the intestine and alleviate the movement of the intestine;At the same time, the intestinal protein can be coagulated, because the bacteria itself is composed of proteins. After the tea polyphenols meet the bacterial proteins, the bacteria die, which plays a role in protecting the intestinal mucosa, so it has the effect of treating enteritis.

4.Sober up and quit smoking

It is also well known that tea can sober up and fight tobacco. Wang Yangming, a neo-confucianism scholar in the Ming dynasty, used the famous saying, "just as drunk after hangovers, it is necessary to drink tea", which showed that Chinese people have long recognized the effect of drinking tea and relieving wine. The ancients often "drown sorrow with wine", "sober up with tea". The ancients often used "wine to worry" and "tea to sober up". The poet Liu Yuxi of the Tang Dynasty, one day drunk, remembered that Bai Juyi had “six classes of tea” to hangover, and then sent people to change clothes for tea, and was passed down as a tea story by later generations.The main ingredient of the wine is alcohol, which contains 10% to 70% alcohol. Tieguanyin tea polyphenols and ethanol (the main ingredients in the wine) offset each other, so tea can hangover.

5.Weight loss and beauty

The main cause of obesity is that the body's cholesterol and fat are too high, and it accumulates in the human body, making people fat, butTieguanyin contains a large amount of tea polyphenols and other substances, which can accelerate the discharge of cholesterol in the body, and at the same time inhibit the activity of enzymes responsible for the decomposition of lipids in the human body. It makes the lipid substances difficult to decompose, so that there is no way to be absorbed by the intestines, thereby achieving the effect of slimming beauty.


Chinese and foreign scientific research shows that the main cause of human aging is the free radicals, which can over-oxidize unsaturated fatty acids in the human body.Therefore, in order to delay the aging rate, the best way is to clear the free radicals, reduce the rate of peroxidation, and let the cells get normal growth and health and longevity. Some components in Tieguanyin tea can achieve the effect of scavenging free radicals, so that it can achieve the effect of resisting aging.
