Droplets and bubbles forming patterns in water

There two phenomenons which I observed with water: One is the well known steam pattern on the surface of hot tea or coffee, which seems to be very dynamic. It builds up and suddenly millions of droplets disappears collectively. This is a kind of electrostatic force which lets the droplets levitate over the surface and interact with each other. Sometimes the patterns looks like the contours of a leaf.

The other phenomenon is that of the microbubbles in water if it passed through a water energizer. I thought “let me check if they form similar patterns as the hot tea”, but they did not … at least not initially, but then I added one drop of a Bach flower remedy and suddenly the bubbles formed a pattern. They did as long as I didn’t cleaned the glass with hot water.
