Do you know how tea leaves are dried? Today we will learn about tea dryer and tea drying methods.
Tea dryer machine
First, let’s introduce you to the tea dryer machine.
Equipment principle of tea dryer machine: the dryer machine belongs to the high-temperature heat pump unit, and its working principle is to use refrigerant to compress into high-temperature and high-pressure gas through the compressor. Then it enters the condenser, where condensation, liquefaction, and heat release are used to heat the air in the drying room. This will increase the temperature of the drying room. Then, the water in the material is vaporized and evaporated by hot air, and the evaporated water vapor is discharged by the moisture removal system to dry the material.
Tea drying process
Drying process: collect fresh tea → spread → clear → knead → dry.
- First, put the picked tea leaves for about 4 hours. Then, the fresh tea leaves will become soft. Then twist the tea into strips.
- Then put the tea leaves into the baking room for drying. When we knead the tea with our hands, it will be broken into pieces.
- After drying, we need to store them in a dry, low-temperature, and sanitary room by grade.
With our tea leaf dryer, the temperature and time can be controlled independently. Moreover, our tea dryer is also suitable for low-temperature aroma extraction process. It can more effectively promote the production of aromatic substances and maintain the green color of tea.
