dc.description.abstract Correlation between theaflavins content and tasters' valuations of Kenyan black teas generally give positive but statistically non-significant correlation coefficients. In 105 correlations using 12 samples each, only eight analyses gave statistically significant (P⩽ 0.05) correlations. Theaflavins contributed positively towards valuations but Kenyan black plain teas have high and possibly above optimum theaflavins content. Consequently other factors appear to play major roles in tea pricing, for example the generally higher prices realised by Kenyan black plain teas compared to Malawi black plain teas can only be partly attributed to the higher theaflavins content of the Kenyan teas. en_US
