The infinte trip of a teabag!

"A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water."
Eleanor Roosevelt

Every true Brit (my mother is one of them) has his/her favorite tea, appreciated for its unique taste and aroma. The secret of good quality tea lies in its blending. Blending tea gives it subtle tones and flavors. Blending tea is an art-form. No two teas are ever the same, even if they're from the same estate. Like wine, the quality of tea varies enormously according to country of origin, weather conditions, altitudes and the structure and quality of the soil.

When Sir Thomas Lipton created his company in the late 19th century, he bought his first tea estate in Ceylon. More than 100 years of firsts and innovations has enabled Lipton to bring more tea enjoyment to more people in the world than any other tea company.  Building on the experience of over a century in growing and blending tea, Lipton has kept alive Sir's Thomas's love of innovation and expertise.

Let yourself be transported by Lipton's French site onto an infinte trip of the virtual world of tea.
