NEW LIPTON GREEN TEA – ALL THE GOODNESS WITHOUT THE BITTERNESS!

 

Full of natural goodness and packed with positivity, our new Lipton Green Tea Non-Bitter is made with 100% Sencha tea to give you a fresher, lighter, and more delicate taste without any bitterness. 

Sencha green tea and regular green tea actually come from the leaves of the same plant and differ based on processing methods. Regular green tea leaves get pan-fried, but Sencha… oh, Sencha tea leaves receive a gentler treatment. After being picked they’re carefully dried and hand rolled, which produces a leaf with more complex character. Though not too dissimilar to its green cousin, Sencha’s delicate umami rich fresh flavors are more reserved and refined.

BEST TIME TO DRINK GREEN TEA

Our Lipton Green Tea Non-Bitter blend is perfect for those after-meal moments where you need to balance out your meal with a zero calorie and healthy drink. It’s also great for those moments during the day when you need a little pause to re-energise and revive yourself or if you’re gearing yourself up to head out and hit the gym or if you need a dose of pure sunshine in your system before a stressful meeting.

BENEFITS OF GREEN TEA 

  • A fresh tasting way to meet your recommended daily fluid intake. Tea is one of the best hydrating beverages after water.1,2
  • Green Tea contains 'catechins'3. Studies in Asian populations have shown that regular consumption of green tea containing catechins may help reduce waist circumference by 1 cm 4,5.
  • Green Tea contains 'flavonoids6. Clever compounds naturally found in plant-based food such as fruits and vegetables that may help keep your cardiovascular system healthy7-8.
  • Not only that, there are more natural flavonoids in just one cup of green tea than in two cups of fresh orange juice (of course orange juice is packed full of vitamin C and other great nutrients).6 
  • A zero calories beverage when consumed without milk and sugar9. 
  • A cup of 200 ml brewed green tea contains 24 mg caffeine, which is one third the caffeine of a typical cup of (200 ml) brewed coffee10.

HOW TO BEST BREW GREEN TEA

If you’ve ever tried a green tea and found it slightly on the bitter side, it’s probably because it’s been steeping for a little too long. It doesn’t take much persuasion to get Sencha tea leaves to reveal their full flavor. We recommend soaking them for around 1 minute before enjoying. If you prefer your tea to have a bite to it, let it steep for 2 minutes.
