People Say That They’re Finding Worms In Their Tea Bags…But Lipton Isn’t So Sure

Lipton Tea is involved in a huge scandal right now that was caused by a YouTube video. A woman claims that she spotted strange worms in several tea bags. After she filmed herself opening a bag of tea and picking through the worms, the video quickly went viral.

Representatives from Lipton have denied this claim that their tea bags are riddled with worms by saying that the “worms” are actually lemon flavoring. Check out the video below and decide for yourself.

Here’s the original video:

And this is Lipton’s response:

According to Snopes, Lipton is correct in their claim that the worms are just flavor additives. When submerged in hot water, the objects in question instantly dissolve. Real worms wouldn’t do that. As a tea enthusiast, I appreciate this woman’s vigilance either way.

Would You Still Drink Out Of The Tap If You Found THIS In Your Glass?

They say it was Montezuma who cursed the water in Mexico after his Aztec empire was overthrown by the Spanish, causing digestive turmoil to tourists stupid enough to drink it. But based on this video, one wonders if he cursed the waters of Argentina too…just for good measure.

Turns out this worm-like creature is called a rat-tailed maggot, which is a larva of the drone fly. So technically if Diego waits long enough, this thing will fly out of his glass of water on its own. Then again, he should probably get his water tanks cleaned before then.

This Giant, 5-Foot Earthworm From Ecuador Is Creepy As Hell

Earthworms are some of the many organisms on this planet that keep our society going. Without them refreshing the soil, you can bet that we’d have a pretty big agricultural problem on our hands.

Despite that, worms are pretty creepy to look at, which is why we’re here to give you some perspective. The next time you pick up a rock and see a bunch of worms underneath, take comfort in the fact that they’re not five feet long.

If you don’t feel like that’d be such a bad sight to behold, I give you the five-foot earthworm in all its glory.

Nope! So much nope. I mean, I guess earthworms are harmless, but I just can’t seem to shake the creepiness of this one. Are we totally sure this isn’t a snake?
