Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To obtain basic knowledge about the relationship between the application of organic fertilizers and the δ(15)N values of leaves of organically grown tea plants, annual variations in the δ(15)N values of the tea leaves were investigated. Although variations did not immediately arise after the application of organic fertilizers, differences in the δ(15)N values between organic and conventional cultivations appeared basically after three years from the beginning of the organic cultivation except when an organic fertilizer with a low δ(15)N value was applied, and the variation depended on the δ(15)N values of the fertilizers. In addition, the effectiveness of the δ(15)N values as a practical indicator of organic teas was examined. The tea leaves collected from organic farms did not always have higher δ(15)N values than the commercially available nonorganic teas. This result demonstrates that it is not easy to discriminate organic teas from nonorganic teas simply by their δ(15)N values.
