Abstract: Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze is a hyper fluoride (F) accumulation plant, whose F content in tea leaves is much higher than other plants, without any toxic symptoms. However, F is not an essential element for tea plant growth, and under high F stress, F affects the normal growth of plants by destroying the cell structure and inhibiting enzyme activities. In order to provide a theoretical basis for the future study of F accumulation in tea plants, the research progresses in the absorption, enrichment and accumulation/detoxification mechanisms of F in tea plants were reviewed.

Key words: Camellia sinensis, fluoride, accumulation mechanism
