Abstract

Fast emerging nanotechnology seems destined to play a significant role in the production, consumption and other
activities involving 'tea'. An attempt has been made here to focus upon the areas that offer scope for application of this modem
technology in 'tea'.
Biochemical constituents of tea leaf and processed tea used for eco-fi-iendly preparations of nanoparticles of gold, silver,
iron, zinc oxide, copper and their application in health and agricultural activities have been outlined, briefly. Application of nano
products in tea culture and post-harvest operations has also been discussed.
