Abstract


Natural and  artificial    radioactivity   concentrations  of  the  Turkish  tea samples    were  determined using 20% n-type HPGe gamma-ray  spectrometer. 238U, 226Ra, 232Th, 228Ra, 228Th, 40K, 210Pb, 7Be and 137Csradioactivity concentrations were measured. 238U, 226Ra, 232Th, 228Ra, 228Th   radioactivity concentrations were  MDA. 7Be, 210Pb, 40K and 137Cs radioactivity concentrations   mean values were  found 30.8 ± 2.3, 49.4 ± 4.4, 485.4±38.6 and 38.8±2.4 Bq kg-1, respectively.
