Pu’er tea, like other teas, has something to pay attention to. The drinking taboos of Pu’er tea are as follows:
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. As the saying goes, “The empty stomach is panicky and the evening tea is difficult to fall asleep”. Drinking tea on an empty stomach can dilute gastric acid, inhibit gastric juice secretion, hinder digestion, and even cause “drunken tea” phenomena such as palpitation, headache, stomach discomfort, dizziness and upset, and affect protein absorption.
2. Pu’er Tea can be brewed with drinking. Avoid drinking overnight Pu’er Tea. After a long time of brewing, heavy metals and other harmful substances will precipitate in the tea. Tea polyphenols are oxidized in large quantities, which makes the color of tea muddy and reduces the health effect.
3. Pu’er tea just made should not be drunk. From the nutritional point of view, the new Pu’er tea just made has not been placed for a period of time, and the nutrients have not been oxidized. Some elderly patients with gastric acid deficiency and chronic gastric ulcer may have adverse reactions if they drink it for a long time.
4. Pu’er tea should be drinked warmly, but not hot or cold. Frequent drinking of cold Pu’er tea can have side effects on the mouth, throat and intestine of people, especially those with poor spleen and stomach. Therefore, warm and hot drinking is advocated for health preservation.
5. Avoid drinking plenty of Pu’er tea before and after meals, which will dilute saliva and affect food digestion. Drink at the right time after meals, not blindly. Before and after meals, it’s better to be one hour apart before and after meals to really achieve the best effect of health care.
6. Drinking Pu’er tea before going to bed should be moderately two hours before going to bed. It is better not to drink Pu’er tea (raw tea), which can cause mental excitement, affect sleep and even insomnia. But you can drink a small amount of mild ripe tea.
