Kept in Tea Too Long?

I have some bhut jolokia seeds I was soaking overnight in some weak tea and had completely forgotten about them for three days.

They've been on a heat mat at about 90 F and when I went to investigate what this bag on the mat was (I had other things on the mat as well) I discovered it was my seeds soaking in tea!

The napkin they were in had a bunch of dark brown residue around the seeds and it smells pretty gross which concerns me.

Is it too late to put them in a napkin with fresh water or am I safe?

I would just try it.

What do you have to lose?


RE: Kept in Tea Too Long?

My guess is that the odds are against you but like Keriann said - nothing to lose but the time by giving them a try.
