Lipton makes a splash in the global beverages market with tea-based drinks including leaf tea, infusions and ready-to-drink tea.

Making a big splash in the global beverages market

Lipton continues to lead as the global tea beverage market, making a big splash with a variety of tea-based drinks.

Keeping it green

As well as enabling consumers to drink better and live better, Lipton is also good for the environment. Sustainable farming practices, both within our own and third party tea estates, is vital for our future. One example of the many environmental and ethical measures being taken is the 'Trees 2000' programme in Kenya, which sees Lipton planting 40 000 indigenous trees every year to curb deforestation.


Lipton is growing fastest in ready-to-drink teas including the international Lipton Ice Tea range, the Lipton Brisk range in North America and a range of Lipton ready-to-drink teas in Asia which can be served hot or cold. Other recent flavour innovations cater to changing and adventurous tastes, for example green teas and the Lipton Fusion blends of iced tea and exotic fruit juice varieties.
