Tea bags - very easy to use on the road, at work.But if a person thinks that he is drinking, in what quantities, and about the dangers of tea bags.Of course, it is believed that the fine tea dust is able to give a strong drink than brewing large leaf tea.
But unscrupulous manufacturers use such a feature tea leaves, adding not only a tea bag, and oak leaves, poplars, or grasses, and delayed leaf tea.A good tea can not be cheap, so do not buy a cheap tea bags.
Adding flavorings to it often indicates that under that mask flavor try to hide the cheap, expired tea dust.Chemical fragrances much cheaper natural, and add pieces of dried fruit (also a waste, but other production) only to indicate their composition and attract attention.Furthermore, the addition of dyes, preservatives detrimental to whole body, excess fluorine content adversely affects the condition of the teeth and the skeletal system.
What is tea overdue trash?Yes, any dried plants, including tea, the shelf life of not more than 2-3 years old, it seems simple, look at the date of packaging of tea and everything.But the date on the label of packing the tea bag in the trash, not the time of collecting "harvest" from the plantation.This tea waste could be stored for years in a warehouse or in any basement.
Regular use of tea bags is very harmful, it is proved the staff of the American University of Derby.Studies have shown that the cheapest tea bags is harmful, it is up to dangerous concentrations increases the level of fluoride in the body, which is manifested by muscle weakness, osteoporosis, joint pain, formation of bone spurs, fused vertebrae, as well as an excess of fluoride increases the risk of kidney disease, reducesstrength of the teeth and even provoke cancer.
appearance of dark spots on the teeth - an important first sign of fluoride poisoning.According to official recommendations, the daily fluoride intake rate should be no more than 3-4 mg for an adult.But this
dose exceeds it in 75-120% of cheap tea bags, that is detected liter teabags 6 mg.fluorine.Especially high concentrations of fluorine is in the old tea leaves, which are most commonly used in the production of tea bags.
to harm from tea bags has led to a serious illness, such excessive fluoride intake should be for 10-20 years, that is, if every day to consume more liters of tea bags for 20 years or 2.2 mg.fluorine for 40 years.
Therefore you should not drink more than 5 cups a day of tea bags, and for pregnant women and the elderly are not more than 3 cups.Especially strengthen the harmful effects of tea bags can be if it is constantly brewing in a plastic cup - office option, or drink brewed tea, which stood for a few hours.
for bags Paper
bags made from filter paper (made of nylon is much less).Paper napkins, for example, is also made of cotton and pulp, as well as the bag, but if you try to wrap a tea towel, then the brewing paper napkin turns into mush and tear.What, then, made a bag, if it can withstand the heat and water, with no breaks and no soak?
sachet consists of abaca fibers - 10%, thermoplastic fibers - 23%, wood fiber materials 65 - 75%.This gives a strong resistance to moisture, mechanical and thermal stresses, paper fibers are firmly bonded at intersections, so sachet is not terrible either lemon juice or injury spoon or other aggressive influences.For fastening the bag can be used: Glue, clip, heat treatment or thread.Most often it is a metal clip, the most unfavorable - is the glue smell which discourage different flavors.

At best, this tea overdue baby, which remains after the production of leaf tea and after sorting process, and most often it is tea dust.In China, tea is considered waste that cheap and greedy for profit corporation European tea, buy tons for the production of tea in tea bags, naming it after the highest grade or premium.
in the tea market in China can be similar materials to see with their own eyes - it's a pile of garbage indistinct color, lying on the road in the open air, next to the pools, not covered with the rain and the sun.His in any number of regularly buying the largest tea company in Europe, is 10 kg of tea waste is only 10 dollars.That is, the packaging of the "elite tea" on the shelves of supermarkets in Russia is several times more expensive bag contents.But tea corporations are in no hurry to disclose the technology of production of "tea", so as not to lose the multi-million dollar profit.
Inexperience Russians and Europeans (90% of whom did not try to present, leaf, fresh Chinese tea) into the hands of producers, since in that case it is easy to convince as tea bags and tell a beautiful legend and the facts about the benefits of this tea, when a person is notcompare.
seems all need to think about the following: taking care of your health, we do not eat spoiled food, do not accept expired medicines, do not drink sour drinks, throw out moldy fruit and bread products, but for some reason every day, drink a beverage made from garbage.By the way, not only the tea bags may be overdue and harmful, in Russia it is possible to buy quality not krupnolistoy tea, expired and potentially dangerous to health.
Tea waste can be divided into 3 categories:
- fresh tea garbage - its raked after sorting tea plantation of useful properties it is extremely small, but it is less exposed to further treatment, sincebit retains the aroma, color and taste of the tea.This is the best tea of other debris, so it is then called " premium" !
- Middle tea garbage - formed after the conveyor packing, transportation, packaging of tea production, the beneficial properties = zero.He has virtually no taste, aroma and color - hence the manufacturer there is an urgent need to add all this artificially - dyes, flavors, fragrances, rose petals and other flowers, mint, and call it " highest category" !
- lowest category - that are sold in Russia, it's not just tea dust and debris that have expired, and fungi containing a lethal dose of chemicals added during processing.What does it mean and how it is dangerous to health?Since this is an overdue trash about the taste, aroma and color of the question, at best, a fragrance smell of hay or place of storage.
In 90% of the raw materials contained aflatoxin - a waste product of fungi, an extremely dangerous substance that causes irreversible liver damage.To give this debris presentation, the dye is added to what you want: you need a black tea - please, green - can and a floral - no problem!And some want to flavor and taste - all adjusted progressive chemical industry.In the process of flavoring residues of active antioxidants are destroyed and degraded L-theanine - an amino acid that has a calming effect on the human brain - all that for which the tea used.
Reference: Aflatoxins - deadly mycotoxins produced by fungi, most of them are infected with products stored in humid and hot climates.Most often, aflatoxins are formed through prolonged or improper storage in stale collection of herbs and tea.This is the strongest hepatocarcinogen (harmful for the liver), they are resistant to heat treatment and when the body is a large dose of poison - cause death within a few days, due to irreversible liver damage.With regular admission of low doses increases the risk of developing liver cancer.Besides tea, aflatoxin is most often found in pumpkin seeds, corn, peanuts.In developing countries, where there is no control for the presence of products of molds, for example, in Mozambique, the mortality from liver cancer is 50 times higher than that in France.
If you watch your health, and I think a successful person, do not save your time for 2-3 minutes on cooking quality leaf tea.Health is more expensive!No job is worth it, even if you are very loaded work in the office, think about yourself - you deserve a good refreshing drink made of ceramic cups instead of slops from a plastic cup.
