Lipton Classic Tea Flavors
As recent as a couple of decades ago, drinking tea was reserved for old people. The hot and normally bitter beverage was seen as a British tradition or an Oriental after-meal drink. No, it was not cool for youngsters to drink tea, until Lipton shook things up and made it a hot commodity.
Apart from being bland and bitter, tea was also almost always served hot. Lipton, one of the world’s most trusted and oldest tea distributors, thought of serving it iced and giving it a tropical spin. This move was very much welcomed by tropical countries like the Philippines, where a cold and refreshing drink is needed every 30 minutes.
