Lipton Orange Herbal Tea, just like all of Lipton’s Herbals, is produced from flowers, herbs, fruits, and also spices in order to come up with a flavorful, aromatic cup you can take pleasure in anytime day or night. This particular blend of tangy oranges, spices, as well as herbs produces a most “appealing” all-natural drink which quenches your thirst any time.

Serve Orange Herbal Tea hot or iced, with or without any sweetener. We take tangy oranges and then squeeze them together with the spices and the herbs to come up with this particular product.

The Lipton Orange Herbal Tea is comprised of six boxes that contain twenty teabags each, garnering a total of a hundred and twenty. It makes use of only natural ingredients, such as licorice root, cinnamon, organic orange flowers, orange peeling, cloves, roasted chicory root and hibiscus flowers. There is no single amount of caffeine included, along with other added preservatives or artificial colorings.

Many say that this is the best tea that has ever made by Lipton. Its mild orange taste is very addictive. In fact, many say that once they tried this certain tea product, they just could not go back to others. more info

Lipton Tea Origins

 

Lipton Tea is probably the most available tea product in North America (and maybe South America) today. In fact, it is has already gained the distinction of being a household name when talking about tea. Its popularity has extended to other countries around the world. What most people don’t know is that lipton tea is not an American-made product. It is in fact, a product that is developed by the British. Oddly enough, lipton tea is not very popular in its own country of origin.

Becoming Lipton Tea

Lipton Tea is a British company, founded by the Scotsman, Thomas Lipton. Sir Lipton lived in America from 1865 – 1870 and during his stay, he learned a lot about the distinctively American way of advertising characterized by bold confidence. A story about him goes that the character of the miracle-working Scottish engineer of the Star Trek series named ‘Scotty’ was actually based on him.

The first Lipton tea shop opened in Glasgow, Scotland on the same year Lipton left the United States. The tea shop started as a grocery store, but eventually specialized in tea. This decision came about when Lipton managed to acquire five bankrupt tea plantations in Ceylon.

Developing Lipton Tea

Sir Lipton himself came up with the names “brisk tea” and “orange pekoe”. There weren’t actually any specific blend of tea called orange pekoe or brisk, but more and more customers would ask for these items when buying lipton tea. Other brands of tea in America have tea listed as “orange pekoe” just to let the public know what flavor their tea is similar to.

Lipton Tea became popular all over the world and particularly in the United States. Sir Lipton himself is known for his outrageous publicity stunts and his travels back and forth to America by crossing the Atlantic are very well documented. Lipton lived to become a rich man. Furthermore, his legacy lived on even after many years after his passing. In 1952, the Lipton company acquired patents for a four-sided tea bag. While tea bags had been available since 1903 they were still very rare. With the advent of Lipton Tea’s four-sided tea bag, bagged tea became popular very quickly and is the more commonly used preferred packaging today.

Lipton Tea is now part of the mega-conglomerate Unilever (which also owns Dove hair and skin care products, Close Up toothpaste and Vaseline, among others). It still remains as one of the largest tea sellers in the world. The tea line includes herbal teas, decaffeinated and green teas, as well as the classic (and invented) “Orange Pekoe”.

The Benefits of Organic White Tea

 

Not all ingredients used in medicinal or herbal teas necessarily meet organic standards, but only because they are not grown organically yet. There’s a lot of support of organic farming and manufacturing in organic white teas that are commercially available, whether bagged or loose. However, there are about 63 herbs and spices that are organically grown.

Growing Methods

When the label in any organic white tea product says it’s organic, it means that most if not all of the ingredients have been organically farmed. This simply means no chemical pesticides or fertilizers have been used in the farming process. Furthermore, this also means that the growers have been paid a fair wage for their work. This is not the usual case. In such areas such as Indian, African or Asian tea plantations, the workers sometimes get paid pennies with the plantation owners keeping most of the most profit for themselves.

With the rising demand for organically-grown products such as organic white tea, countries are working together to universalize the standards for organic farming. In Europe for example, farms must now pass an inspection in organic standardization tests from the European Union in order for the products to be labeled “organic”. The country which grows the most tea in the world, India, has now implemented organic standards. In the United States, they have the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) as the inspecting and standardization body.

Another difference in organic tea from other kinds of tea is the making of the tea bags. In organic teas, tea bags are not bleached. This rule, however, is enforced more strictly in Europe than in America. Other elements such as tags, staples and strings cause a lot of waste so organic tea products rarely have these.

How Organic White Tea Tastes

Organic white tea has the same rich flavors of non-organic tea. However, some people do claim that they can detect a difference in taste between tea made in a bleached bag from that with a non-bleached one. There are simply a lot of varieties to choose from organic teas. You can find black teas, white teas, green teas, herbal teas, medicinal teas, and blends of tea and herbs.

Today, organic white tea costs more than any other regularly made tea products. But more and more companies are now going organic – even big names like Tetley already have organic choices – causing the prices for organic tea to drop over the years. It is hoped that very soon organic tea products will become more popular for consumers.
