Lipton 100% Natural Iced Tea Review

Lipton Iced Tea Logo

Do you love iced tea on a summer day?  I know many people that do but if you could take it or leave it you might want to give Lipton’s NEW 100% natural iced teas a try!  Lipton was nice enough to give our family a sampling of their newest 100% natural flavors and we loved them.  Beginning last month you should have began to see these new flavors popping up on shelves and now they should be widely available.  The new flavors include Green Tea with Passionfruit Mango and Iced Tea with Blueberry Pomegranate.  The line also features preservative-free varieties including Diet Green Tea with Citrus and the newest Lipton flavor, Diet Green Tea with Watermelon.  These diet products are free of artificial colors and flavors.

Lipton Iced Tea

My favorite is the Diet Green Tea with Citrus because it doesn’t have a strong taste and it’s refreshing.  My husband drinks iced tea every time it’s available and from his taste test he thought the Blueberry Pomegranate won by a landslide.  He doesn’t normally care for store bought iced tea but these new flavors from Lipton have changed his mind!  He loves the new flavors and there is no way I can make passion-fruit mango tea at home.  Okay, so there may be a way but since Lipton has already perfected the taste, I’ll leave it to them!   He also wanted me to include that he thought the shape of the new bottles were cool.  He kept each one and refilled it with water for a few days before recycling it.

For our family iced tea is a great alternative to soda in the summer and when you add in an all-natural ingredients list made with real sugar, iced tea looks that much more appealing!

Lipton also sent us a handful of different drink recipes to try using Lipton’s new tea flavors.  While I’ll be sure to leave out the optional alcohol recommendations I do plan on giving a few of these a try.  Watermelon-lime mint punch sounds like a winner to me!  It takes 2 sprigs of fresh mint, 2 bottles of Lipton’s 100% Natural Diet Green Tea with Watermelon, and 1/4 cup of lime juice.  Crush mint with wooden spoon on side of pitcher and add in remaining ingredients.  Let stand 30 minutes and then remove the mint.  Chill until ready to serve.  Garnish with additional mint and lime if desired.  Serves 5.

Lipton has recently partnered with Pandora.com to encourage listeners to experience the natural side of music.  To celebrate the new line, Lipton will be treating tea drinkers to summer programming that will allow them to experience music in an unplugged natural way.  “The Natural Side of Music” will include a surprise summer kick-off concert with a major unannounced artist, online videos featuring cuts and conversations with music artists, and more.  For more information check out Lipton’s Facebook page for all the details.  I love Pandora and Lipton so I’m excited to see what they have in store for us this summer!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Gen-Yknot on behalf of Lipton and received Lipton product samples and a subscription to Pandora One to facilitate my candid review. Gen-Yknot also sent me a promotional item to thank me for my time.
