Summer is quickly approaching and I am certainly looking forward to fun in the sun! I can't wait for those care-free lazy days, enjoying a refreshing drink on the patio while I'm watching the kids play in the backyard. For many this summer that refreshing drink will no doubt be an ice cold, 100% Natural Lipton Iced Tea.
I have to admit, I have never been a fan of iced tea. I actually hate the flavor. My husband and his family absolutely adore iced tea and they guzzle it all summer long. In the interest of being a joiner this summer in the family fun I opted in for a review of the new 100% Natural Lipton Iced Teas. I really wanted to try them because it would be so great to finally enjoy iced tea like the rest of the family. Plus my hubby loves to try new drinks and I knew that he would more than excited to try a variety of iced teas.

I tried each flavor offered and I was amazed to find that I really liked them all, except one. The only one I didn't care for was the Iced Tea with Lemon flavor. It just tasted the most like regular iced tea and I couldn't get over the flavor. My husband on the other hand loved it and gave it a big thumbs up. He also really enjoyed all the flavors. Even the diet flavors, which for him is huge. I liked the diet flavors too. I thought that they tasted like a lighter version of the non-diet flavors. All of them were refreshing but my absolute favorite flavor is the Green Tea with Passionfruit Mango, I was so surprised at how much I really loved it. I can definitely envision my self kicking back enjoying the summer with this drink in my hand.
