1. The Meaning and Research Field of Tea Deep Processing
The deep processing of tea refers to the production of tea-containing products by using fresh leaves and finished tea as raw materials, or using waste and inferior products and waste materials of tea factories as raw materials, using corresponding processing techniques and means. Tea-containing products may be tea-based or other substances-based.
    2. The Significance of Tea Deep Processing
Make full use of tea resources. There is no direct market outlet for many low-grade tea, tea waste and tea waste, and there are a lot of resources that can be utilized. Deep processing of them can make full use of these resources for the benefit of mankind, and enterprises can also benefit from them.
Enrich market products. Tea is of course a good thing, but people are not satisfied that tea is only a product form of "dried leaves", people need to enrich tea products.
Open up new functions. Many functions or functions of tea can not be utilized in traditional brewing methods. Deep processing of tea can make directional and purposeful use of these functions. At the same time, it also cooperates with other materials in deep processing to play a greater role.
    3. Tea Deep Processing Technology
According to Tea Deep Processing Technology, tea deep processing technology can be generally divided into four or four categories: mechanical processing, physical processing, chemical and biochemical processing, and comprehensive technology processing.
Tea processing: This means the processing method that does not change the basic essence of tea. Its characteristic is that it only changes the external form of tea, such as appearance shape and size, so as to facilitate storage, brewing, meeting hygienic standards, beauty and so on. Tea bag is a typical product of tea machinery processing.
Physical processing of tea: its typical products include instant tea, canned tea water (tea drinking) and foamed tea (modulation of tea). This is to change the shape of tea, the finished product is no longer "leaf" loaded.
Chemical and biochemical processing: refers to the use of chemical or biochemical methods of processing to form a functional product. It is characterized by the separation and purification of some specific ingredients from tea raw materials to benefit, or by changing the nature of tea to make credible products. Such as tea pigments, vitamins, antiseptics and so on.
Comprehensive technical processing of tea: refers to the comprehensive utilization of the above-mentioned technologies to produce tea-containing products. At present, the main technical means are: tea medicine processing, tea food processing, tea fermentation engineering and so on.
