My Afternoon Tea Ritual

Lipton green tea

One of the things I really look forward to is my 3 PM afternoon tea ritual.

For some reason 3 PM is when I totally hit the wall at work and I need a mental break and a snack to get me recharged for the rest of the day. I usually start by brewing myself a warm pot of tea and choose a flavour depending on my mood.

When I’m in need of a major pick-me-up, I usually reach for Lipton’s Pure Green Tea and add a few orange slices as a snack. Lipton has updated their green tea blend with a light, fresh taste, bright clearer color and a delightful aroma. This tea also tastes delicious on ice! If you haven’t tried Lipton’s Pure Green Tea in a long time, I definitely recommend picking up a box.

If I’m having a tense day and need to wind down, I go for Lipton’s Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea with a couple slices of lemon and a squeeze of honey to go with. It’s also great if you’re feeling under the weather. I also like to sip on it in the evening after dinner since the tea is caffeine-free. It’s a nice way to cozy up on the couch.

When I’m in the mood for something traditional, Lipton’s Daring English Breakfast paired with a few macarons makes for the perfect afternoon tea at home. I like to take 20 minutes to myself, sip on some tea, have a light snack, and flip through my favorite magazines before going back to work.

It’s just a nice little way to break up the afternoon.
