I bought a Sno-berry Peace Tea today that had a slimy stringy substance in it. I pulled it out of my mouth after unknowingly drinking it, and I put it into a napkin. Once the moisture was out of it, it was a strong, fibrous string...Any idea what this is??

    Sounds like fungus. Where did you buy it, and do you have a date from the package? – user34961 Jun 6 '19 at 12:30

The ingredients list:

TEA (WATER, TEA POWDER), CANE SUGAR, NATURAL FLAVORS, CITRIC ACID, PECTIN, SUCRALOSE

None of those should be slimy or stringy, and also wouldn't form a fibrous string even if it was sitting for a long time. It's almost impossible to know what did contaminate your drink. However, you can get in touch with the manufacturer about it!

    Tough and fibrous would point to a piece of sugar cane. – GdD Jun 6 '19 at 9:14

    A lump of pectin not properly dissolved could also be the cause – Bee Jun 6 '19 at 11:07
