Tea Saponin – “Beautiful Foam”

As early as ancient China, people paid attention to the foam that appeared when making tea, and regarded this “white foam” as the essence. There is a poem in the “Xie Fu” written by Du Yu, a poet of the Jin Dynasty in my country: “It is just the beginning, and the foam sinks into the Huafu. It is like snow, and it is like a spring compress.” It describes the light soup after brewing tea for the first time. The flowers floated up, bright and bright like dazzling snow, gorgeous and splendid like the thriving spring flowers. In the Song Dynasty, fighting tea was a social fashion. Song people fighting tea was mainly “fighting the color and fighting the float”, that is, the color of the tea soup and the tea foam that came out were decided. Gray and white are second, and yellow and white are second.” The tea foam is better to “bite the cup”, the so-called “bite cup”, that is, the soup noodles “the milk mist is turbulent, overflowing from the cup, and the circle is condensed and does not move, which is called the bite cup.”

The industry recognized that there are three main reasons for the foaming of tea leaves: one is that the tea saponin in the tea is at work; the other is that the tea leaves are made of multiple varieties; the third is that there are more broken powder and tea shavings in the tea. If the fermented tea is not properly crafted, there will be too much foam; while some high-end ancient tree tea soups in Pu\’er tea have foam, the reason is that the ancient tree tea has a lot of hairs and substances in the tea leaves. Tea saponin, protein, solid powder, charcoal powder, etc. with bubble properties in tea ingredients; among them, tea saponin, also known as tea saponin, is a substance that can make tea foam, and the foam caused by tea saponin is harmful to human body. harmless. Tea saponin will accumulate and increase with the growth of fresh leaves. Now there are processing plants that specially extract it and use it to produce emulsifiers, detergents, foaming agents, etc.
