yeah thatís the one

I think they have to on some level determine that a majority of the honey comes from the flowers of the manuka tree

Earl Grey steeped for too long is hella bitter and also a real gut-starter, it's like the morning's first coffee but anytime of day.

i mean, it is all about the health benefits right? it's rated on its methylglyoxal contents after all, a wondrous chemical previously more enjoyed by diabetics, with benefits like damaging dna and causing atherosclerosis

e: to be clear studies suggest that *eating* it may not cause those problems, but otoh of course nothing really establishes any of the imagined benefits either. and i find it really funny that there's a health product carefully measured and rated to contain as much as possible of what is in the body a toxic metabolic byproduct that there's a lot of focus on lowering

e2: plus also of course eating "anti-bacterial" stuff by and large means that you should hope it doesn't actually work.

it's mouth twisting bitter and then i add some sugar to make it good, literally leaves plaque in my mouth. best way to drink tea

if you comically oversteep the tea even more than this and then add evaporated milk, your most of the way toward hong kong style milk tea
