Why does tea get sweeter when it sits in the icebox overnight?!

Question: Why does tea get sweeter when it sits in the icebox overnight!?
The tea that was sweetened when it was hot has a different kind of sugar in it!. The sugar that we normally use is called sucrose!. Sucrose is a sugar that plants make and use to store energy!. When you add the sucrose to the hot tea, a process called inversion takes place!. The sucrose breaks down into two other sugars, glucose and fructose!. This combination, called invert sugar, is about 10% sweeter than the sucrose it was made from!. When all the sugar is dissolved and you cool it, the tea is now sweeter cold than when it is hot!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
