Solid Phase Micro Extraction of Tea Flavor Components

Glass of tea with tea bag.

Tea flavors can vary from spicy to flowery to fruity and any combination thereof. Moreover, the flavor profile of tea can depend on where the tea leaves are grown, the brewing time and temperature, the processing of the tea leaves, and the type of leaf used. Using Head Space Solid Phase Micro Extraction (HS-SPME) sampling in conjunction with Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) for separation and analysis, assorted teas will be examined for their varied flavor components.
