  • Abstract

    Theaflavin (TF) is a group of very important polyphenol of black tea with functions such as antioxidant, suppressor, and inhibitor of pathogenic microorganisms. Furthermore, TF is used to prevent coronary heart disease and treat diabetes mellitus. TF-1, TF-3-monogallate and TF-3’-monogallate mixture (TF-2), and TF-3, 3’-digallate (TF-3) are the major black tea polyphenols. The difference in antioxidant property of four major TFs is due to the difference in their chemical structure. TF are types of thearubigins and are therefore reddish in color. These major polyphenols are biochemical oxidation products derived from green tea polyphenols which are responsible for the characteristic color, fragrance, and taste of black tea. In recent studies, it has also been found that TF reduces total body cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein.
