Have you seen the new Lipton Pure Leaf Teas?

New from Lipton, they are actually made with real brewed tea leaves, with a nice variety of flavors:

  1. Unsweetened Iced Tea: Hand selected black tea leaves (0 Calories)
  2. Sweetened Iced Tea: Hand selected Tea leaves brewed to fine flavor sweetened with all natural sugar (70 calories)
  3. Extra Sweet Iced Tea: Reminiscent of southern sweet tea, all natural sugar is the highlight of this drink.
  4. Iced Tea with Raspberry: bold tart berry flavor meets smooth black tea (80 calories)
  5. Iced Tea with Peach: tangy-sweet peach flavored with fresh brewed black tea leaves ( 80 calories) also available in Diet (0 calories)
  6. Iced Tea with Lemons: Natural Lemon flavor with traditional taste of fresh-brewed all natural black tea leaves (70 calories per serving) also available in Diet (0 calories)
  7. Green Tea with Honey: delicate flavors of green tea and honey (60 calories per serving)

I had the honor and privilege of giving some of the tea a taste test:

Don’t those look delicious?  They are.  They feature all natural ingredients, with a fresh brewed taste.  What I really like about them (besides their taste, of course) is that they have no preservatives and no high fructose corn syrup.  Which means that when Princess Nagger begged for a taste, I happily complied.  She loves it, too.

In addition to the fact that the tea itself is all natural, the bottles are made of PET plastic – labeled with the #1 code and are 100% recyclable.  Since the bottles are now plastic instead of glass, they are much lighter to transport, which means they use less fuel.  Love that Lipton is being environmentally conscientious.

To that end, Pure Leaf Iced Teas are also Rainforest Alliance Certified, which is available exclusively to farms that meet or exceed the rigorous standards for sustainability. All of Pure Leaf Iced Teas use leaves from these farms, and you’ll see the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal on each of the bottles.

Summer is right around the corner, and that’s when I usually tend to drink more iced teas.  Now that Lipton has these delicious Pure Leaf Teas available, I’m going to be one happy camper.  Definitely better than my usual increase of drinking soda during the summer months.  This will be much healthier.

And for those of us who like to turn tea into cocktails, here are some fun cocktail ideas for you to try:

  3. The beverage inside the Lipton Pure Leaf new -squared- plastic bottles doesn’t taste as good as when it used to be bottled in glass bottles.
    The new beverage doesn’t even taste like real tea anymore, it tastes like a heavily modified apple juice -tea wanna be-.

    Real Tea has never tasted good in plastic bottles. Why ruin an otherwise great Tea drink?

  4. Sorry Lipton, you lost me. The green tea and black tea in the glass bottles was perfect. You ruined it. Why change a perfect thing?! I guess I’ll have to make my own now.

  5. Sounds like yummy lipton pure leaf tea! I love lipton pure leaf teas are really delicious. Thanks for this variety of tasty flavors real brewed tea names input here!

  6. HELP!!!! We love Lipton Pure Leaf unsweetened real brewed tea and are sad that it no longer is available in glass bottles! We are also sad that the plastic replacement bottles (not nearly as good) are not available in our stores. There seems to be plenty of the flavored and sweetened stuff.

  7. I too am disappointed in the change to plastic bottles.

    Not only are they plastic, they are square and no longer fit in nor dispense from our company pop machine. Unfortunately, we will no longer be offering this item in our employee vending service. Too bad. It was delicious the way it was. Our employees are not pleased.

    Is it just me or does the tea actually taste better in a glass bottle?

    Hmm. 🙁

  8. I just tried this tea for the first time recently and it is awesome! I’ve tried Lemon and Sweetened. I can possibly see how some people find the Lemon reminiscent of sweetened juices, but the Sweetened tastes like delicious fresh made tea to me! I’ve never tried it in the glass bottles, so can’t say if there is a difference. Still, in the plastic bottle I think it is great! I also love the bottle style, although it is awkward for some cup holders.

  9. Sorry, every time you go to plastic you lose the taste of the tea. Keep it simple. Tea drinkers like tea flavor. The black tea and green leaf with honey were the best but only in glass.

    1. 18g of sugar is nowhere near what a serving of soda has. Usually a soda has between 27-33g of sugar per serving.

  10. There is always some corporate type who wants to make a name for himself in these companies. Changing to plastic bottles ruined it for me. I used to love grabbing an ice cold bottle of tea from the frig for dinner. Now the bean counters have destroyed that experience for me. Lipton, if you have any sense at all change back before you lose us all. Trust me, it will be the right decision.

  11. We are also really disappointed in Lipton’s new plastic ice tea bottles. Nothing was more perfect that an ice cold glass bottle of Lipton tea. (Unsweetened was our favorite.) I know it’s silly when there are a lot more important issues than tea out there but we started a Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/BringBackLiptonIceTeaGlassBottles. If you miss the glass bottles, please like the page on Facebook and see if we can get Lipton to listen.
