It has been found that caffeine from tea is assimilated very slowly as compared to caffeine from coffee or its aqueous solutions. Soluble polyphenols, mainly catechol tannins constitutes 10-20% w/w of black tea. Much of these are derived by oxidation of flavonols, flavandiols and theogallin during its preparation. Thearubigins constitutes a major part in black tea. Theaflavins are fiercely astringent. Caffeine enhances biosynthesis of catecholamine and polyphenols inhibit their degradation. Among the flavor substances present in combined from such alcohols as hex-3-en-1-ol, benzyl alcohol, and 2-phenyl-ethanol, as well as linallol in black tea and geraniol in green tea.
