Abstract

Aluminium content of tea leaves has been engaging the attention during recent years because of its uptake in the form of beverages such as tea. Hence, data were generated on the Al content in tea and its infusions, using an inductively coupled plasma spectrometer. The average values of Al in fresh tea leaves and commercial tea powders were 250 and 325 pg/g dry wt., respectively. Tea infusions contained 20-80 pg/l of Al. Al complexes with tea components like tannic acid and theoflavins were studied and stability characteristics as well as the nature of the complexes were computed.
