Did you know tea is one of the world’s most popular beverages, second only to water? It doesn’t come as a big surprise to me since I’ve been sipping Lipton Tea since I was five years old! My mom would hear me coughing in the middle of the night and make a cup of sweet black tea with lemon to calm my throat and help relax me so I could get some rest.
Now as an adult, I reach for a cupful of Lipton green tea when I’m stressed out and would like to soothe my nervousness. I drink just about 4 cups every day, simply because I enjoy the taste and additionally want to reap the many potential health benefits associated with it. Green tea is the least processed and therefore is exceedingly abundant in health-promoting flavonoids , including catechins and their derivatives. It is rich in epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is shown to play an essential factor in the green tea’s anticancer and antioxidant effects. Clinical studies suggest consuming green tea can reduce cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease, help safeguard against many forms of cancer, minimize inflammation connected with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, assist in managing blood sugar levels, and much more! Some researchers even believe that the substances in green tea may also boost metabolism and help melt away fat! For this reason alone I aim to sip as much as I can!
Being such a green tea enthusiast, I guess it’s only fitting I’m a Lipton brand ambassador and have been given the privilege to let you know about new products, exclusive news, money saving coupons, and the chance for you to win some amazing goodies to help you make the perfect cup of tea! If you love tea…you are not going to want to miss everything I have to share with you!
Recently, I received a wonderful welcome basket which included an electric tea kettle, on-the-go tea tumbler, tea box, and three boxes of delicious Lipton Green Tea with Superfruit. Lipton added the newest flavors of Purple Açai with Blueberry Green Tea Superfruit, Red Goji with Raspberry Green Tea Superfruit, and White Mangosteen with Peach Green Tea Superfruit to the extensive tea line and the teas are absolutely delightful and packed with flavonoids.

White Mangosteen with Peach Green Tea Superfruit
We blend the exotic flavors of mangosteen and peach with our green tea for a special combination that’s sure to please. Plus, LIPTON Teas naturally contain tea flavonoids.

My favorite out of the three flavors was the White Mangosteen with Peach Green Tea Superfruit. I adore peach tea and the fresh aroma it gives when steeping. The peach wasn’t weak or too overpowering, but just perfect. I usually drink my tea with a bit of stevia added, but the tea was good without it and had a slight natural sweetness. To get the full flavor, I leave the tea bag in while drinking it so it gets stronger. I think the White Mangosteen with Peach Green Tea Superfruit would also make a refreshing ice tea too.
What’s Your Favorite Way To Drink Tea?
No matter if you enjoy it green, black, white, decaf, hot, iced, with milk or with sugar, everyone has their favorite tea and favorite way to drink it! My preferred way is to sip tea in the early morning eating a scrumptious blueberry muffin while surfing the internet.
