In this study, 90Sr (540 keVβ −), 129I (150 keVβ −) and the gross beta radioactivity concentrations were determined for the samples of tea as the most leading consumed hot
drink in the markets (processed and packaged for sale) in our country. Furthermore, the obtained data were statistically analyzed.
For determination of 129I (150 keVβ−), 90Sr (540 keVβ−) and gross radioactivity concentrations in tea samples, a sensor system consisting of scintillation detector with BP4 probe
sensitive to beta radiation and a radiation meter (ST7) configurable for windows at desired power was used.
