Say I make two cups of tea, with a moderate amount of honey. Same amount of each both times, same type of mug. Mug 1, I stir the honey in, thoroughly, immediately after pouring the hot water over the tea bag. Mug 2, I give the honey a cursory stir or three. I am assuming that after a couple of minutes the tea at the bottom of mug 2 is sweeter than the tea at the top. But THEN I stir mug 2 thoroughly.
Do both mugs reach sweetness equilibrium? Do they taste the same? If not, why not?
