Lipton Pure Leaf Iced Tea Hits the Spot

Pure Leaf Iced Tea hits the spot any day. Made by Lipton and available in multiple flavors, I drink it straight out of the bottle or included in fun drink recipes. It tastes even better than home brewed and there’s much less hassle. Pure Leaf uses a Tea Master, John Cheetham, to ensure that their tea leaves create the perfect tasting tea.

Before I moved to the south, I’d never heard of iced tea. Now it’s something I drink quite often, especially when I’m dining out. Sweet tea with lemon is my favorite flavor and I like it sweet. Pure Leaf Iced Tea has Sweet Tea, Extra Sweet Tea and Lemon Tea among other flavors. I’ve tried the Sweet and Lemon and they are simply delicious!

The new plastic bottles used by Pure Leaf make it easier to bring the iced tea along to an outing on the beach or a picnic. Of course, they are 100% recyclable. Pure Leaf has made a commitment to help the environment by switching from glass bottles to PET plastic.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Lipton Pure Leaf. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

      I never thought about it before too, but the smoothies were delicious. If you use the sweet tea, there’s no need for sugar.

  3. There’s nothing as refreshing — not soda, not lemonade, not even water — as iced tea. The tannin seems to beat your thirst like nothing else.
