Refreshing Lipton ice tea


It is the perfect time to enjoy ice tea and cool off during summer heat.  Lipton has lots of delicious flavours of ice tea varieties for us to choose from.  We tried the Lemon, Green tea citrus and pomegranate raspberry ice tea that were already prepared in bottles.  Lipton also has boxes with 10 sachets of flavoured ice tea that we can mix and drink.


The ice tea is made with fresh brewed tea and all natural ingredients without any preservatives, sugar or artificial flavour.  The lemon flavoured ice tea is an energy booster that has a slightly sweet tart taste.
The rejuvenating green tea citrus flavour is made with green tea leaves and a combination of orange and lime flavours.  

Lipton has lots of ice tea flavours that we can enjoy on its own or combined with other ingredients to make delicious entertaining drinks.  Check out the Lipton ice tea Facebook page for cocktail and mocktail recipes.


Here is a summer entertaining White Citrus Sangria recipe from their Facebook
1 bottle 100% Natural Lipton green tea with citrus
1 3/4 cups white grape juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1 orange sliced
1 lemon sliced
1 lime sliced

Combine everything in a pitcher and chill for 2 hours before serving in ice filled glasses.
Interesting fact :)  The annual tea drinking holiday was on June 10, 2012

Pomegranate orange juice

Pomegranate orange juice
1 pomegranate
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
sugar to taste
2 tsp orange flower water
fresh mint sprigs for garnish optional

Remove the seeds from the pomegranate without the white pith. In a blender puree the pomegranate with the water, then strain using a fine sieve. Press the puree to extract as much liquid as possible. Transfer to a container and add the orange juice, sugar and orange flower water. Serve with ice cubes and garnish with mint sprig.
