What is the fuss about Lipton green tea worms lately, anyway? Well, based on the Lipton green tea worms video that has gone viral within the last days and weeks, it is suspected that there are worms found inside the green tea packages from Lipton. As you can guess, the viral video has been watched by millions of viewers and they have been afraid that they experience the same thing. After all, you wouldn’t want to happen to consume something with wormy contents, would you? So, how is it all about?
About the Videos and the Fuss
Again, you definitely don’t want to consume anything suspicious or dangerous to your health, right? Worms are associated with dirt and soil and when there are worms inside your packaged foods, you probably think that the foods aren’t hygienic or they are even prepared in a poor sanitary condition. Let alone if the worms are green and yellow – and they don’t seem to be clean. Well, the same thing happens to the fuss about the Lipton green tea worms rumors. After all, when you consume something that is suspiciously has been contaminated with something unclean, you are worried about your own health, right? And when you have consumed it for quite a while, you are probably wondering whether your consumption has something to do with any underlying health conditions or your current health state.
Well, the same thing happens concerning the Lipton green tea worms. There is a Youtube video showing a woman that is opening the Lipton teabag and find some small yellowish worms. From the Lipton green tea worms Youtube, she opens not only one, but two, teabags and all of them contain the ‘worms’. In fact, the woman also shows that those ‘worms’ are found in all the teabags from Lipton – at least from what they had checked. However, such a thing doesn’t show from the non-flavored variants. On her video, she shows that all of those worms are found inside the teabags – and you can hear her saying that the worm isn’t only one but many of them.
The Real Problem
The problem with something you post on the social media is that it will go viral in such a short time with such uncontrollable effect. Most people won’t bother checking the facts first – especially those who don’t use their logics or minds when it comes to addressing a social issue. Most of the social media users may be using their smartphones to access the internet. Unfortunately, their wits aren’t as smart as their phones. So, don’t be too surprised when the issue about Lipton green tea worms becomes so viral with many people having negative reactions over the matter – they mostly believe the video and blame the tea producer. Instead of really finding out whether it is true or not, they immediately share the videos and make negative comments without even bother to check whether it is true or not.
Using the Logical Wits
After seeing the video, you may be wondering why would Lipton put such worms within their products? Do the worms somehow increase the tasty flavor? Are they important for the extraction of the teabags? Is it a production faulty? Unfortunately, your questions won’t be found in the video. In fact, it just arises other questions. Moreover, if you want to take a closer look, those wormy creatures do look like worms but they don’t seem to move, wriggle, or crawl. Even when the woman’s finger touches them, they don’t show any movements at all. Some people reason that these Lipton green tea worms are already dead, so it is logical if they don’t move. But then again, you can’t really tell whether they are real or not, or even dead or not, simply because you aren’t experiencing it yourself. Most people who comment or say something are ONLY watching the video without trying to prove it on themselves.
Moreover, if you want to think of it carefully, how would the woman knows about the ‘worms’ existence from the first place, anyway? Did she taste it? Did she have a different taste to the tea, leading to the Lipton green tea worms rumor? Was the teabag broke and the worms were leaking out? If it were you, would you be so absent-minded and toy with the teabags out of curiosity? Why would you want to know more about the teabags, anyway?
The True Claim
In accordance with the Lipton green tea worms rumor, Lipton acts fast by debunking the rumor. They state that the suspected ‘worms’ actually the particles for lemon flavors that will dissolve in water. The flavors are added into the green tea variant to create the lemon taste. This explains why such a wormy items aren’t found in the non flavored variants. Lipton even includes a video where the teabags are opened and where the yellowish ‘wormy’ particles are taken. And then the particles are put into a hot water and viewers can see that the particles dissolve and disappear. Other social media users try to prove the claims shown by Lipton and most of their reports are confirming Lipton’s statement. It is a good thing that it has reached the same conclusion, putting the case to an end.
Of course, now the case has made people wonder, why would the video about the Lipton green tea worms are created from the first place? Most people would probably try to get the answer from Ismat Raza, the woman in the video stating that there are worms in the Lipton package. But she doesn’t respond to any inquiries or request from anyone. It seems that her social media account has been inactivated – whether it is related to the case or not, it is still unknown. And why she would make the video and post it on the internet remains unknown. It is still a mystery that hasn’t been solved by anyone.
