Abstract: With the increase of knowledge on the human taste feeling mechanism and the development of sensor and pattern recognition technologies, electronic tongue, an intelligent sensing instrument simulating the human taste system, has been rapid developed. It is now also widely applied in many fields. This paper introduced the basic principle and structure of the electronic tongue. The application of electronic tongue in the identification of tea varieties, detection of taste substances, quality evaluation of tea etc were also reviewed. Moreover, the problems present in the application of electronic tongue in tea and the development direction in future were also discussed, which could be a useful reference for further in-depth studies.

Key words: electronic tongue, tea, taste sensor array, pattern recognition
