The chemistry and health benefits of tea—one of the most consumed beverages in the world—continue to receive a great deal of attention with, typically, over three thousand publications a year on the subject.
A major proportion of the publications are based in medical research, covering all of the major diseases, from a (bio)chemical, mechanistic and toxicological perspectives, through to improving the well-being of patients.
In vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrate the wide activities of tea and its components, including anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-hyperglycemic, anti-cariogenic, and wound healing. Teas have also been useful in a variety of combination therapies to reverse antimicrobial resistance and as cancer chemopreventive agents. Clinical trials have been reported for intact teas or tea components in a growing number of conditions.
