Since ancient times, Chinese people have the habit of drinking tea. Especially in the hot sun, when it’s hard to be in the heat, a cup of green tea can quench the heat and quench the thirst, just like jade brewing Qiongjiang, which is wonderful. In compendium of Materia Medica, tea is called “bitter taste, sweet taste, cold nature, non-toxic”, while traditional Chinese medicine theory holds that “sweet is the tonic, bitter is the purgative”;. Tea tastes bitter and sweet, so it has both tonic and purgative effects. It is a good medicine with bitter and cold nature and can clear away heat and detoxification at the same time.
Not only that, tea also has many effects. The vitamins and elements in tea can protect blood vessels, prevent arteriosclerosis and hypertension. The fluorine contained in tea can prevent caries and help desensitize teeth. Therefore, gargling with tea after meals can play a role in protecting teeth.
