TIP OF THE DAY: Lipton Iced Tea & Honey, Whenever, Wherever

As the weather warms up and we get thirstier and thirstier, we plan how to hydrate on-the-go.

That’s why we’re delighted that Lipton has launched its Tea & Honey To Go packets. This new line of iced tea mixes contains natural honey, real tea leaves and real fruit flavors.

Wherever you can find a glass of water—or fill your water bottle—you can have a refreshing glass of iced tea for just 5 calories per eight ounces. The packets themselves weigh nothing and can be carried in a pocket. So today’s tip is: Consider the convenience of to-go packets to make instant drinks from water.

These Lipton Tea & Honey iced green tea drink mixes include:

  • Black Currant Raspberry
  • Blackberry Pomegranate
  • Lemon
  • Mango Pineapple
  • Peach Apricot
  • Strawberry Açaí
    The mixes also come in pitcher-size packets.

    And the except for sucralose, the mixes are all natural.* The ingredients include honey granules,† citric acid, green tea powder, maltodextrin,‡ natural flavor and color.

    The products are hitting stores now nationwide. You can get a free samples when you like Lipton on Facebook, while supplies last.

    *Although sucralose is made from sugar, the sugar molecule is chemically modified, which classifies it as an artificial sweetener.

    †Honey granules are pure honey, dried and cut, with no additives, into pinhead-size pieces. You can buy them online.

    ‡Maltodextrin is a starch filler made from natural corn, rice or potato starch. It is a white powder used as a thickener or a filler without altering flavor. It’s in artificial sweetener packets, for example, because the very few grains of aspartame or sucralose required as a sweetener wouldn’t fill a packet.

    Why We’re Big Fans Of Tea & Honey To Go Packets

    1. 5 Calorie Fruit Flavor. The added honey neutralizes the sucralose flavor. The drinks are sweet and fruity, for just 5 calories per eight-ounce cup/10 calories per bottle.

    2. Instant Drink. Open the packet, add to water and stir or shake. How easy is that?

    3. Sustainability. Keep reusing the same water bottle, save the landfill from empties.

    4. Price . At $3.29 for 10 packets (prices will vary), you can enjoy fruity ice tea for 32¢ a bottle instead of buying a ready-made drink for $1.79.

    We see many products launched that aren’t really needed. We do need

    Honey, Tea & Lady Antebellum

    You can also enter the brand’s Drink Positive Sweepstakes with Lady Antebellum on Facebook, for the chance to win a visit with the band in Nashville and exclusive live music downloads. There’s also a series of Lady Antebellum’s behind-the-tour webisodes.


    We were Lipton’s guest at the Lady Antebellum concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Great group, great evening and lots of great Lipton Tea & Honey.
