Lipton Brisk Iced Tea

by

This may come as a surprise to some, but not to those of us from the South. That is, good cold iced tea on a hot summer day is da bomb! (Sweet iced tea, of course. Not that unsweetened northern abomination.) Personally, I find any canned iced tea to be only a shadow of the real iced tea that real Southerners drink, but no one yet has been able to properly can a mother’s love and/or home cooking. Given that, Lipton Brisk Iced Tea isn’t bad when it comes to food or drink facsimiles.

Still, let us look closer. What Lipton Brisk lacks in syrupy sweet taste, it makes up for with its online promotion. There you will find another music mixer, and best of all, Hip Hop Milestones (…a journey through the most influential moments of Hip Hop history).

And now the bad. The site is terribly out of date. The contests ended some time ago, but the site has not been fully updated to reflect that. In fact, Lipton hasn’t even gotten around to posting the names of any winners.

If we follow a less obvious link at the site, we arrive at the primary Lipton site. There we find more nutritional information about tea than we might wish to know. We discover that Lipton sponsors a women’s bicycle racing team, TEAm LIPTON. (Yea, I’m an “old fart” bicycle racer of 25 years now, but am a bit out of shape this season. Blogging does not keep one as fit as biking.)

We also find a multi-media presentation of tea’s healthful benefits. And, we find The Lipton Live Well Challenge. Yes, Lipton’s umbrella site is very rich indeed.
