The original experimental scheme was further optimized and improved by quantitatively measuring the effects of total ionic strength adjusting buffer, different tea leaves and tea-making water temperature and time. The objective is to enable students to understand the importance of controlling the experimental conditions for determination, so as to further stimulate students' interest in the science and pleasure of chemistry experiments.

Key words: Ion selective electrode, Fluoride content, Experimental improvement
