What Actually Gives Tea It's Taste?

What Actually Gives Tea It's Taste?

By: Dan & Eileen DurandComments: 0


Why do we like tea?  It’s the taste - as well as the response of mind and body.  The flavor of a tea can be separated into two contributors: taste (non-volatile compounds, floating, detected by your tongue) and aroma (volatile compounds, detected by your nose and tongue).   
What makes a tea taste like that?  While it’s a little risky to generalize, there do appear to be some general truths as to why a tea tastes like that.  Tea chemical compounds collectively give some idea of the source of certain flavors and aromas.
