A decade after the British tea company became the first to commit to sourcing all of its tea in a sustainable manner, Unilever-owned Lipton has announced its first organic line of black tea. The Rainforest Alliance Certified black tea leaves, sourced from the Kenyan Highlands, adhere to USDA Organic standards.
“We’re thrilled to bring an organic option to the market at an affordable price,” said George Hamilton, Tea Director at Unilever. “We are also hugely proud of the blend that will deliver a naturally smooth taste that’s rich and delicious.”
Lipton Organic Black Tea was launched to U.S. retailers in early October, at a suggested retail price of $4 per 72-count box of individually wrapped tea bags.
