Abstract

Tea is aromatized with an aromatizing composition, in the form of a granulate or suspension, comprising one or more aroma- beta - cyclodextrin inclusion complexes, water, and a binding agent selected from dextran, soluble starch, gum acacia, methyl cellulose, linear dextrin, hydroxyethyl cellulose or mixtures of any of these. The tea is particularly adopted for use in tea bags.

Description

SPECIFICATION Tea aromatizing compositions and tea aromatized therewith The present invention relates to tea aromatizing compositions and tea aromatized therewith.

The majority of tea is commercially available without aromatization and the consumers aromatize the tea themselves by adding lemon slices, lemon juice or rum to the prepared tea. A minor proportion of teas is sold aromatized. Aromatization is generally performed by spraying the aromatic volatile oil on the tea leaves in an inert atmosphere, such as nitrogen under elevated pressure. The aromatized teas leaves are then sold in a sealed packing.

Such aromatized teas preserve their aroma until the tea-box is opened i.e. until the tea is contacted with air. Soon afterwards the teas lose their aroma due to evaporation and oxidation processes. These teas can thus be sold only in expensive sealed packing but cannot be sold in the popular tea-bag form.

In our Specification No. 2000517 A we have shown that aroma substances can be protected from unfavourable effects of the atmosphere by sealing them into cyclodextrin complexes. The inclusion complex has an effect of stopping the volatility of the aroma and protects the easily oxidizable aroma molecules from the oxidizing effect of the atmosphere.

To meet the need for aromatized tea-blends which may be supplied in tea-bag form, a solution seems to offer itself i.e. to admix the aroma substances in the form of their cyclodextrin inclusion complexes with the tea leaves prior to bagging.

Thus the aroma substances could be protected and teas of various aromas could be prepared. No difficulty would arise from the fact that the tea leaves contain the aroma as the cyclodextrin complex prior to boiling as the aroma is released from the complex by the action of hot water.

We found, however, that such tea aromatization with cyclodextrin inclusion complex encounters a problem due to the small particle size of the complex.

Though the fine particle size facilitated the blending of the aroma complex with the tea leaves, the blend separated in the bag-filling machine. The particle size of the aroma complex is 1 8-20 8 and its specific volume is about 1.5 cm3/g. The particle size of the tea leaves however is 750 y and the specific volume thereof is 3 cm3/g, which values are rather different. The separation was promoted by the vibration of the machine.

The aromatization of tea leaves with cyclodextrin complex is performed according to the invention by preparing an aromatizing composition (a) containing 1-30 % by weight of a granulate consisting of 100 parts by weight of one or more aroma-lS-cyclodextrin inclusion complexes 5 to 40 parts by weight of dextran and/or 5 to 40 parts by weight of soluble starch and/or 5 to 40 parts by weight of gum acacia and/or 5 to 40 parts by weight of methyl cellulose and/or 5 to 40 parts by weight of linear dextrin and/or 5 to 40 parts by weight of hydroxyethyl-cellulose O to 100 parts by weight of tea leaf dust O to 1 5 parts by weight of glycerol and 5 to 40 parts by weight of water (sufficient to get paste-consistency, dried to homogeneous airhumid paste of a particle size of 0.3-1 mm, preferably 0.5-1 mm, or (b) containing an amount of 2 to 10 % by weight of a suspension consisting of 10 to 35 parts by weight of one or more aroma-ss-cyclodextrin complexes 2 to 12 parts by weight of dextran and/or 2 to 12 parts by weight of soluble starch and/or 2 to 12 parts by weight of gum acacia and/or 2 to 1 2 parts by weight linear dextrin and/or 2 to 12 parts by weight hydroxyethyl cellulose and O to 3 parts by weight of glycerol and 50 to 88 parts by weight of water.

The granulates according to the invention dissolve rapidly and completely in hot water and do not change the colour, or light transmission of the tea and apart from the aroma they do not add any further taste or flavour to the taste or aroma of the tea.

The binding agents according to the invention, for example dextran, dextrin, soluble starch, gum acacia, methyl cellulose, or hydroxyethyl cellulose, do not influence the preparation of the tea. The above components dissolve in hot water without changing the colour or light transmission of tea and do not change its aroma. The complex dissociates in hot water and the aroma is released.

The total amount of dextran and/or soluble starch and/or gum acacia and/or methyl cellulose and/or linear dextrin and/or hydroxyethyl cellulose used as binding agent in the granulate is preferably 20 to 30 parts by weight related to 100 parts of the aroma component.

The binding agents may be used separately or in combination.

Dextran is particularly preferred.

From an aesthetic point of view it may be advantageous if the colour of the granulate is similar to that of the tea leaves. The granulate may be coloured with the tea leaf duct obtained by disintegration o tea leaves.

The granulate according to the invention may be prepared by preparing a solid blend from the aromatizing component, the solid binding agent and optionally from the tea leaf dust and glycerol and water are added in a kneading machine. After homogenization the paste-like mass is granulated, dried and ground and a fraction of particle size of 0.5-1 mm. is screened. The oversized particles are ground again whereas the undersized granules are kneaded repeatedly by adding a small amount of water, then regranulated, dried and ground.

Thus the whole amount of the blend may be converted to a granulate of the desired particle size.

The specific volume of the granulates according to the invention approximates to the specific volume of the tea leaves and thus when shaking the aromatized blend (e.g. in the machine for the preparation of the tea-bags) the aforementioned objectionable separation does not occur. Similarly stable is the tea aromatized with the suspension according to the invention. The binding agent of the suspension fixes the aromatizing inclusion complex on the tea leaves.

In the aromatizing compositions according to the invention as aroma-,-cyclodextrin inclusion complexes preferably bergamot oil, jasmin oil, peppermint oil, lemon oil and anise oil may be employed separately or in a combination necessary to achieve the specific aroma desired.

The preparation of the inclusion complexes is disclosed in our aforementioned specification, wherein the volatile oil to be included in a complex or an ethanolic or ethyl ethereal solution thereof is admixed with a warm -cyclodextnn-aqueous alcoholic solution under stirring. Upon cooling, the corresponding volatile oil inclusion complex precipitates from the solution in crystalline form.

Further details of the invention can be found in the following Examples which serve merely for illustration and not for limitation.

EXAMPLE 1 A paste-like mass is prepared in a kneading machine by using 250 g. of bergamot oil-/3-cyclodextrin inclusion complex 50 g. of dextran (average mol. weight 43000) 25 ml. of glycerol and 25 ml. of water.

The mass obtained is granulated at room temperature and dried. The dry granulate is ground and fractionated on a sieve. The fraction of a particle size of 0.5-1.0 mm. is applicable for the preparation of a tea blend. The oversized fraction is ground again whereas the undersized fraction smaller than 0.5 mm is kneaded again by adding a small amount of water; the mass is granulated, dried, ground and fractionated. Thus substantially the whole blend is converted to a fraction of the desired particle size.

330 g of a granulate containing 76% by weight of bergamot oil complex is obtained.

EXAMPLE 2 One proceeds as disclosed in Example 1 but 250 g. of bergamot oii-p-cyclodextrin inclusion complex is replaced by 250 g jasmine oil-P-cyclodextrin inclusion complex.

EXAMPLE 3 One proceeds as disclosed in Example 1 but 250 g. of bergamot oil--cyclodextdn inclusion complex is replaced by 250 g peppermint oil-i3-cyclodextrin inclusion complex.

EXAMPLE4 One proceeds as disclosed in Example 1 but 250 g. of bergamot oil-B-cyclodextrin inclusion complex is replaced by 250 g. lemon oil-P-cyclodextrin inclusion complex.

EXAMPLE 5 One proceeds as disclosed in Example 1 but 250 g. of bergamot oil-p-cyclodextrin inclusion complex is replaced by 250 g. anise oil-/3-cyclodextrin inclusion complex.

EXAMPLE 6 A paste-like mass is prepared in a kneading machine from: 25 g. of bergamot oil-/3-cyclodextrin inclusion complex 2.5 g. of dextran 4 g. of dextrin 0.5 g. of glycerol and 6 ml. of water.

The mass obtained is processed into a granulate as in Example 1.

Similar results are obtained if dextran or dextrin is replaced by the same amount of soluble slarch, gum acacia, hydroxyethyl cellulose or a blend thereof.

EXAMPLE 7 A paste-like mass is prepared in kneading machine from: 1 5 g. of bergamot oil-/'-cyclodextnn inclusion complex 1 5 g. of tea leaf dust 6 g. of dextran 3 ml. of glycerol 1 5 ml. of water.

The mass obtained is processed into a granulate as disclosed in Example 1. 40 g. of a brownishgrey granulate containing 37.5 % by weight of bergamot oil4-cyclodextrin inclusion complex is obtained.

EXAMPLE 8 100 kg. of tea-leaves for filter-bags and 2 kg. of a granulate according to Example 2 are blended and the blend is filled by a machine into filter-bags. 1.5 g. of the blend was filled into each filter-bag.

Aromatized tea is prepared similarly from all the other granulates. The following amounts of granulate are preferably used related to 100 kg. of tea leaves: 8 kg. of bergamot oil granulate (according to Example 1,6 or 7), or 20 kg. of lemon oil granulate (according to Example 4) or 4 kg. of peppermint oil granulate (according to Example 3) 4 kg. of anise oil granulate (according to Example 5).

The aromatized teas prepared as disclosed above were stored in filter-bag form in boxes at room temperature for 1 year. Instrumental and tasting tests showed the same aroma content and the same aromatizing effect as in the case of the fresh composition.

EXAMPLE 9 A suspension is prepared by using 2.8 g. of jasmin-oil-p-cyclodextrin inclusion complex, 0.56 g. of dextran average mol weight 43000, 0.28 g. of glycerol and 6 ml. of water.

28 y. of tea leaves of filter-bag grade are stirred in a small laboratory granulating machine and by using a small atomizer the above suspension is sprayed on the leaves in a current of nitrogen. The sprayed tea leaves are dried under steady stirring in a current of air.

The obtained aromatized tea-leaves are suitable for filling into filter-bags in a suitable machine.

EXAMPLE 10 One proceeds as disclosed in Example 9, but 0.56 g. of dextran is replaced by 0.84 g. of linear dextrin. The suspension is sprayed on the tea leaves with compressed air.

EXAMPLE 11 One proceeds as disclosed in Example 9, but 0.56 g. of dextran is replaced by 0.56 g. of water soluble starch. The suspension is sprayed on the tea leaves with compressed air.

EXAMPLE 12 A suspension is prepared by using 23 g. of lemon oil--cyclodextrin inclusion complex, 3 9. of dextran, 3 g. of linear dextrin, 0.23 g. of glycerol and 44 ml. of water.

The suspension is sprayed on 250 g. tea leaves as given in Example 9.

EXAMPLE 13 One proceeds as in Example 9, but as aroma component 2.0 g. of bergamot oil-,-cyclodextrin inclusion complex, 2.2 g. of peppermint oil-p-cyclodextrin inclusion complex, or 3.2 g. of anise oil-/S- cyclodextrin inclusion complex are used for the preparation of the suspension.

The aromatized teas prepared according to the invention are filled into filter-bags by means of a suitable machine and after storing in cardboard boxes for 1 year instrumental and tasting tests showed that the aromatized teas had not lost their aroma content.
