As soon as the weather gets warmer my choice of beverages change. Instead of craving hot coffee and hot cocoa I find myself wanting beverages like iced coffee and iced tea.
I grew up drinking iced tea. My mom used to have to purchase the huge tubs of Lipton Ice Tea mix because I would make several glasses a day. It was great with meals or to quench my thirst after a long day of playing outside.
I still enjoy iced tea and I drink it often, most especially in the warmer months. I like to make pitchers of iced tea so I have it handy whenever I want some, or my family. However there are times when I don’t have any made and I really want something that I can just “grab and go”. That is why I love the Lipton Tea & Honey single serve packets. I keep a couple in my purse. My kids have even put a couple of them in their backpacks for school. All you need is a reusable water bottle or purchased water bottle. When you are ready to enjoy simply tear open the package, pour the contents in the water bottle, shake to mix it up and enjoy.
Now that it’s summer time I know my family will be heading off to the beach for the day. We’re planning a trip to the New Jersey Shore and possibly a lake in Pennsylvania. Adding a few packets of Lipton Tea & Honey are going to be a part of my beach “must haves” including sunscreen (A LOT of sunscreen!), baby powder (great for getting sand off your feet), non-perishable snacks, brush/comb, lip balm, plastic bags (for wet bathing suits), change of clothes and a good book. We always bring plenty of water with us when we go to the beach. Now we can sweeten it up with the addition of the Lipton Tea & Honey packets that I’ll also toss into my beach bag.
What kinds of things do YOU bring to the beach with you?
I don’t have any photos of my family out and about enjoying the Lipton Tea & Honey on the go, only because the weather has been really “iffy” the past two weeks and we haven’t had a chance to do much. We’re hopeful to get a chance to go out and do something fun next weekend.
I am in love with Lipton Tea & Honey Iced Black Tea with Lemon. It reminds me of something you could find in a restaurant. It’s hard to believe that it’s a mix that comes in a small packet. I also really like the Lipton Tea & Honey Iced Green Tea with Mango and Pineapple. It’s such a unique combination of flavors. Green Tea is great on it’s own but adding flavors like Mango and Pineapple really give it a unique taste. The Lipton Tea & Honey Iced Green Tea with Blackberry and Pomegranate is also a very unique taste that I have never experienced until now.
Other flavors available which I haven’t had a chance to try out yet include Peach Apricot Black Iced Tea, Black Currant Raspberry Black Tea and Strawberry Acai Decaffeinated Iced Green Tea.
Each box of Lipton Tea & Honey comes with 10 on the go packets. Each packet has only 5 calories (8 ounce serving) and retail for around $2.99. There are also pitcher packs, sample packs and club size packs available.
Unlike other on the go drink products, Lipton Tea & Honey is sweetened with honey, not sugar. You can actually taste the honey too. I notice the honey flavor a bit more in the Green Tea varieties than the Iced Black Tea. It really does taste like someone put a few drops of honey into the tea.
In my opinion the flavors all taste real and not artificial. That is because they are made with real tea leaves and real fruit flavors.
If you are planning on any barbecues or parties in the near future why not considering offering your guests some of the new Lipton Tea & Honey flavors? You could fill a pitched of water, add in the appropriate number of packets (one packet for every 8 ounces), stir, add ice and serve. Your guests will love the new flavors. Or you can use one of the special pitcher packs are also available for around $2.99.
This is a fun way to add “flavor” to any ordinary day all summer long and beyond. At only 5 calories you can enjoy Lipton Tea & Honey several times per day too.
