Chemosystematics of tea trees based on tea leaf polyphenols as phenetic markers.

Abstract

This study examined the polyphenols of tea leaves as chemotaxonomic markers to investigate the phenetic relationship between 89 wild (the small-leaved C.sinensis var. sinensis and large-leaved C. sinensis var. assamica), hybrid, and cultivated tea trees from China and Japan.
