At some point in the winter season, I began to wonder about tannins. What plants are they found in? What foods or drinks are they in? Is there a difference in the tannins/levels in green tea vs black tea? Is a tannin a tannin regardless of what it's found in?
The question that persisted in niggling at my creative mind - especially each morning when I enjoy a pot of jasmine green tea - is how would green tea rust? Only one way to find out...just do it.

Even dry, I still see hints of blue in the grey. An internet search on tannins in green tea vs black tea supplied one answer on the subject. Green tea has a higher tannin content than black tea due to not being left to oxidize. Of course, this just makes me wonder if white tea has a higher tannin content than green tea and how it would rust. Hmmm...
