How Does Loose Rolled Tea Compare to Tea in Teabags?
Grade Level: 6th to 9th; Type: Physical Science
Gunpowder green tea is made available for sale in a tightly rolled shape and is said to be quite concentrated because of this shape. Most green teas come suspended loose in teabags. The research aspect of this science fair project is to measure two teas using a device called a refractometer to see if there is a difference in infusion concentration based on the way the teas are packaged.
