Pure Leaf™: An Exceptional Tea Experience Starts with the Leaf
Made with the finest ingredients and authentic processes, Pure Leaf™ lives up to carefully crafted menus. It’s made from high-quality, single-origin tea leaves that are gently rolled and blended with real fruit and flower pieces to deliver guests a premium taste and experience.
Long Leaf and Single Origin
Long leaf means carefully selecting the top two leaves and the bud of the tea plant, which are the highest in flavour quality. Single origin means leaves are chosen from the finest tea estates in the world. Like terroirs for wine, every estate offers specific flavour characteristics for each tea.
Left Alone or Expertly Blended
To craft exceptional flavours, tea master blenders complement tea leaves from the right origin with carefully selected fruits and herbs. Sometimes tea is left alone to let its natural essence shine through.
The Story of Sustainability
Pure Leaf™ believes the most delicious tea is real tea, done right and sustainably sourced. They work with the Rainforest Alliance, an international nonprofit, to source teas from estates that promote sustainable practices. The Rainforest Alliance partners with forward-thinking farmers to conserve natural resources and ensure the long-term economic health of crops and communities.
Lipton®: There’s a Tea for Every Time and Place
With the wide variety of flavours available, it’s easy to find something for every type of mood. Unique packaging guides guests to order the tea they want, and the highly recognizable Lipton® brand shows patrons a commitment to quality.
Lipton®: A History of Amazing Tea
Lipton® has always led the way for tea. From Sir Thomas Lipton’s innovative Lipton® tea estate, to his exciting marketing promotions, Lipton® stays one step ahead of the curve. Every drop of Lipton® tea comes from the best leaves on sustainable plantations. No matter what guests are after, their perfect Lipton® moment is waiting.
Today, Lipton® touches many parts of the world. Their tea is grown in estates in Kenya, Argentina and Sri Lanka, and they own tea estates in Kenya and Tanzania.
A Future Committed to Sustainability
Lipton® is working to ensure a better future for the environment, for workers and for their communities. They’ve been partnered with the Rainforest Alliance for over a decade.
- They try to keep pesticides to a minimum on their tea farms to ensure natural crop management.
