Abstract

BACKGROUND: The geographical origin of tea (Camellia sinensis) can be traced using mineral elements in its leaves as fingerprints. However, the role that could be played by soil mineral elements in the geographical authentication of tea leaves has been unclear. In this study, 22 mineral elements in ...

Abstract

Tea plantations have used many synthetic chemicals to ensure performance and control of pests. This has led to increased contamination of soils and reduced tea growth. We assessed the levels of heavy metals, including Cd, Cr, Pb, Cu, Ni, Zn, Hg, As, and pesticide residues, such as HCHs, biphenyl...

Abstract

It is very important to highlight the biogeochemical cycle of trace elements and their accumulation in crops and potential health risks in high geological background areas. The accumulation of selenium (Se), arsenic (As), mercury (Hg)and cadmium (Cd)in tea leaves was investigated and the impacts of ...
