Lipton is one of the world’s greatest refreshment brands. It’s the world’s best-selling tea brand, has been established for more than 100 years, and is available in more than 100 countries.
We’ve learned a lot about tea over the past century – and Lipton now offers an array of tea-based drinks, from leaf tea to tea bags, Lipton Ice Tea soft drinks, zero calorie infusions and healthy green tea that’s packed with antioxidants.
We’re proud of our heritage but we’re certainly not afraid to innovate. Our experts broke with teabag tradition to come up with the Lipton Pyramid tea bag which allows tea leaves more room to move and infuse for a better brew. And our Lipton Cold Brew tea bags, which make instant ice tea easy, are another example of how we’re reinventing one of the world’s favourite drinks.
Rainforest Alliance Certified tea farms
We’re committed to sustainability too. We’re working towards ensuring all the tea for our Lipton tea bags comes from Rainforest Alliance CertifiedLink opens in a new window farms by 2015. That means we can be sure our tea is sourced from farms which respect good conservation practices and pay fair wages to the people who harvest our tea leaves.
In the first half of 2010, we achieved our interim target of sourcing all the tea for our Lipton Yellow Label tea bags sold in Western Europe from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. And by 2018, Lipton aims to have all the tea sold in Turkey – the world’s fifth-largest tea producer – sourced from accredited farms too.
