I acknowledge my wonderful brother and mother for helping me make this investigatory project and to the almighty God for him this research is able.
Tea is created using the leaves of Camellis Sinesis that can be found in China, South Asia, and Southeast Asia but now found in Japan and Korea. This research and experiments are only limited to making a simple ink as a colorant. This will benefit us by producing an alternative for other inks. Set-A seven teabags, one tablespoon of vinegar, a bag of cornstarch, a strainer, a fork and a bottle put you teabags in a boiling water ,wait for six minutes, remove the tea bags from the boiling water, then strain it ,while stirring add vinegar, continue stirring and add dissolved cornstarch then finish, and Set-B with seven tea bags and bottle. Put your tea bags into boiling water, and then wait for six minutes, then finish. Based on the results, an alternative ink can be made out of tea bags, and an ink made out of tea bags mixed with vinegar and cornstarch has more consistency and strength in color.
Tea is created using the leaves of the plant known as Camellis Sinensis. This plant is native in China, South Asia, and Southeast Asia but now found in Korea and Japan. Tea- drinking can be traced back to spread to Korea and Japan. Basically, this drink is made by brewing tea leaves to create an extract. Due to the chlorophylls and other pigments in the leaves, the extract commonly appears with Brown Color. It was mentioned that theaflavin is the reddish brown pigment found in tea. It is an example of flavonoid which acts to create color.
This research is being done to find out the potency of extract of the leaves from the plant Camellis Sinensis is ink. Nowadays, ink is a pigment in a liquid or paste form used as colorants and dyes. Also, they are becoming more and more expensive because of there increasing purposes. This research aims to produce this ink as a cheaper
