Important Process Of Green Tea- Fixation

1. The effect of temperature on enzymes

There are many enzymes in tea. For example, the presence of polyphenol oxidase can catalyze the oxidation of polyphenols and make the leaves red. If a certain method is used to destroy the activity of polyphenol oxidase, the polyphenols will lose the conditions for the oxidation reaction, so they will not quickly turn red. The "fixation" process in green tea processing is to use high temperature to "Passivation" the activity of enzymes, so that the polyphenols will not be enzymatically oxidized during the subsequent rolling and drying process, thereby maintaining the green leaves of the clear soup.

The purpose of "fixation" is to use high temperature to destroy the oxidase activity, but if it is not handled properly, not only will it not destroy the enzyme activity, but it will increase the enzyme activity, causing red tea leaves and green leaves. It can be seen that the temperature has a duality on the enzyme, that is, it increases the speed of the catalytic reaction. At the same time, the speed of the passivation reaction is also increased under high temperature conditions.

It is irreversible that the enzyme is destroyed by heat, but sometimes the fixation temperature is not high enough, and the enzyme activity is inhibited without being destroyed. After the high temperature is relieved, it will regain vitality, and red stems and green leaves will appear when they are twisted or dried.
