High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has been used to quantify levels of free amino acids, catechins and caffeine in Chinese green tea. Levels of free amino acids and catechins in green-tea leaves show obvious variation from spring to summer, which is useful information to identify the production seasons of commercial green tea. Supervised pattern-recognition methods such as the K-nearest neighbor (KNN) method and Bayesian discriminant method (a type of linear discriminant analysis (LDA)) were used to discriminate between the production seasons of Chinese green tea. The optimal accuracy of the KNN method was ≤97.61% and ≤94.80% as validated by re-substitution and cross-validation tests, respectively, and that of LDA was ≤95.22% and ≤93.54%, respectively. Compared with LDA, the KNN method did not require a Gaussian distribution and was more accurate than LDA. The KNN method in combination with chemical analysis is recommended for discrimination of the production seasons of Chinese green tea.
