The tea plant (Camellia sinensis L.) is famous for its flavanol-based constituents being valuable for human health. These flavanols associate with the nuclei of tea flowers, which is demonstrated histochemically by blue colouration using the selective staining reagent p-dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde (DMACA). Sepals, petals, stamens, pollen tubes, ovaries and ovules were studied. All these organs were shown to contain flavanols in vacuolar compartments, in nuclei and, exceptionally, also in the… CONTINUE READING
