Abstract:

Green tea and black tea are derived from the plant Camellia sinensis, while lemon grass belong to Andropogonschoenantusand herbal tea belong to different natural herbs plant. The present study was designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of different tea extract against most disease causing human pathogens which include Escherichia.coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Bacillus subtilus, Micrococcus luteus, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebseila pneumonia, andCitrobacterspps. Antimicrobial components present in these tea extracts have high rate of antimicrobial properties. The antimicrobial activity of these extracts were determined by agar well diffusion technique. In this study black tea and green tea give maximum zone of inhibition against majority of pathogens as compare to lemon grass while on other hand herbal tea give no zone of inhibition.


Keywords: Camellia sinensis, Andropogonschoenantus, Antimicrobial activity, Tea extract, Human pathogens.
