Dear Colleague:
     Yes, I did come across a reference where black tea was found to inhibit 
cholera bacteria (Toda et al., 1991, J. Appl. Bacteriol., 70:109-112). I think 
they made a note that they were planning to fractionate the tea to see if any 
components are more inhibitory than others or if a synergy was involved. I 
hope this helps...John
