Lipton Peach Tea- Europe Style




Not sure what they are doing to MESS UP Lipton Peach Iced Tea in the USA- but they are messing it up!!!  I have posted about this on previous blog posts.  And again I was in Munich Germany and I had the WONDERFUL Lipton Peach Iced Tea and it was so pure and peach tasting....but then if you try it in the states it soooo artificially and icky! 
BRING EUROPEAN LIPTON PEACH ICED TEA TO THE USA!!!



I have submitted the question to Lipton...we will see what they say about the difference in the teas!


HERE IS THE RESPONSE I RECEIVED:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us at Lipton.

As a global company, our products tend to differ from market to market for a variety of reasons -- consumer preference, ingredient availability, and so on. We're sorry that you don't care for the version of Lipton Peach Iced Tea that is available stateside, and I'll be sure to pass along your comments to the appropriate people on our brand team.

Thanks again for writing. Wishing you all the best as you continue to work on your blog.

TEEKANE. Sweet kisses

While in Munich Germany, I raided my cousins cupboard to try some new tea.  I found Sweet Kisses by Teekane and decided to make a cup or two.

I got my water to the over 200 degrees for herbal tea



I wanted to try this tea since it was made in Germany!  It was good.  I would not say I needed to run out an buy a box, but the flavors were okay.   I wonder what loose leaf tea would taste like from this company- maybe have more flavor or be stronger.  Also- I have no idea how long this tea packet had been in my cousins cupboard- that may be contributed to the lack of strong flavor.

girlfriends and tea


This summer I had a bat problem.  I got TWO bats in one week.  Well, my girlfriends came over to help me catch the bats!  And they were successful!!!

After every good bat "hunt" you need some great tea!!!!


You'll be happy to see these girls wore their protective eye ware and had their heads covered from the bat!!
