Abstract

The content of epigallocatechin-3-O-(3-O-mehtyl) gallate (EGCG3″Me), which has been observed an anti-allergic action in vitro and in vivo (mouse) and present in tea leaves, was determined in different tea varieties, at different cropping seasons and upon various processing methods. Benihomare and two of its offsprings, Benifuuki and Benifuji contained as much as 1% of EGCG3″Me in their green teas and slightly less in their semi-fermented teas. Surprisingly, EGCG3″Me was absent in Izumi, a third offspring of Benihomare. A higher concentration of EGCG3″Me was found on or after the second crop in Benihomare and Benifugi. Furthermore, EGCG3″Me was not detected in black tea (fermented tea) manufactured from Benihomare and Benifugi. Thus, to benefit the anti-allergic effect of EGCG3″ Me, green or semi-fermented teas, made from Benihomare, Benifuuki and Benifugi at second crop onwards, should be consumed.
