Why does Lipton Tea turn black?

22 Oct

So my office stocks reg and decaf Lipton Green Tea. I’ve always wondered  something about the tea. I like my tea very light so I will dunk it in the hot water maybe 3-5 times then toss out the tea bag. Initially, the liquid is  a light brown color but when I let it sit, it turns black! Why does it do this? This doesn’t happen to the other green teas I drink.  Am I the only one who’s curious about this??
