Tea reaction

Post by rama » Sun Jun 24, 2007 12:07 am

Please help me
What are the chemical reactions and the equations that happen in making a cup of tea (for black tea, green tea)?

I think some chemicals in the leaf leak out by aid of water and heat and dissolve with water.

:? Sorry I’ll edit

Ok
Tea leaves + (heat + water) = tea + ice + lemon = ice tea + cognac + little umbrella = pure pleasure + bar + nice girl = romance
Good things you can do with tea
:D

I think there is an error in that formula.

The cognac would have to be written as :

Cognac/nice girl = romance

There is probably no chemical reaction whatsoever, maybe a physical reaction of some components changing from solid to aqueous state. You are simply dissolving something in hot water, nothing too special. If you are asking if whatever thats in tea thats making you feel something in your body, then it's chemical.
