About Lipton Tea

Lipton Tea, owned by Unilever, is one of the most widely-known and widely-consumed brands of tea. The brand was founded by Sir Thomas Lipton in 1871 as a grocery store in Glasgow. Lipton was already successful as a brand before it even started selling tea; the company rose to prominence through outlandish marketing stunts bought its first tea plantations in 1890. In 1893, the company opened a tea processing plant in Hoboken, NJ, with the intention of making tea available to a wider audience of less affluent people. Over time the tea brand became very widely known and distributed.

Lipton produces primarily black tea in teabags, and bottled iced tea, although it does sell flavored teas as well as green tea, herbal teas, and other blends.

In 2009, Lipton's only facility in the U.S. became a zero-waste facility.[1] Unilever has also engaged in other sustainability-promoting practices, including making a commitment to buy all its tea from sources certified by the Rainforest Alliance.

This is the second tea I’ve tried that mixes a green tea with matcha powder in a teabag. It wasn’t bad! I enjoyed my second test more than my first. Like the Celestial Seasonings offering that mixes green tea with matcha powder, this tea is better than the average bagged cheap green tea I’ve tried, as it increase...

When I do drink regular Lipton tea, it's usually from a catering tray where it may have sat for a day or a month. On a whim, I got a small, sealed package (fifteen teas bags for a dollar) so I could try it fresh.

When dry, it smells oaky and leafy, but muted. After steeping, it develops a bit more character and ther...

Purple Acai Blueberry Green Tea

Style: Fruit Green Tea – Region: Blend

Super fruity and can be overly sweet - even without sweetener so go easy on any honey or sugar you might normally add. Very, very fruity. A slight tart finish. Pleasant enough hot but for me better over ice. Inexpensive bagged tea.

Lipton Darjeeling Tea used to be known as "Lipton Green Label" and is packaged for sale in India. I buy this tea as a gray market item at a local Indian convenience store.

This tea is better quality than one might expect from Lipton and is overall a medium-quality Darjeeling. The tea appears to be mostly whole, smal...

I had this at my hotel years back, and I still remember spitting out the disgrace of a "tea".
