The kids also noticed it became tea faster as they moved the tea bags. They also discovered they didn’t like it when they broke open the tea bags and dropped the tea leaves all over their tea.
Scientific mumbo jumbo: Because the molecules in warm water move faster the tea forms faster in the hot water. I also learned that tea is not made through diffusion, but through osmosis because the water is moving through the tea bag, not the tea moving out into the water. Interesting, no?
Now, it’s your turn, what have you done this week?
