I would like to start this out by saying I drink mainly water or tea with maybe a soda drink every now and then. And I usually drink them either
room temperature or warm or hot, as I do am an avid hater of just about anything cold.
Well, the other day I after coming home from a particularly long walk in the sun, I decided to stick a few bottles of lipton green tea with citrus in
the freezer to get them cold faster. Now keep in mind that I rarely do this. I waited for about 30 to 45 minutes, because I just wanted them cold,
not slushy or frozen.
I checked and there was no ice in them, so I took one out and put the others in the fridge. So, as I opened the bottle, imagine my surprise when
after the air hit the tea, it started from the top to form very cloud looking slush. And from there the entire tea became a slush in about a minute
in a half while I was holding it in my hand.
I then checked the other bottles to see if they did it too. They did. This really made me intrigued and a little worried about what they were maybe
putting in my favorite drinks, so I tried this with other drinks as well. None of the others did this. I even recreated it to show to some of my
friends, they were equally freaked out.
So can anyone tell me if they have ever seen this, and if so what would cause it, or if it is just a natural thing for green tea to do.
Just in case you want to try this yourself, the size of bottle for the green tea I used is 500 ml.
Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.
