Theaflavins are a group of polyphenol pigments found in Black Tea, which give Black Tea its characteristic color and taste. Theaflavins are formed from polymerization of Catechins at the fermentation stage during the manufacturing of Black Tea. Theaflavins contribute to the characteristic bright orange-red color of Black Tea, accounting for 2g /100g of the dried black tea. The major Theaflavins in Black Tea are Theaflavin, Theaflavin-3-gallate, Theaflavin-3'-gallate and Theaflavin-3, 3'-digallate.
