Can I rely on the quality of Lipton green tea?  At home I drink Itaru's loose green tea from NAP.  When I'm on the road, tea bags are easier. Lipton's does not taste as good as Itaru's but if the benefits are there, I can deal with it.  I look forward to your thoughts on the quality of Lipton green tea.

As long as it's just green tea, no "flavorings" or other ingredients, it's fine.

Rex, why did you specifically choose the Lipton brand?

The Stash brand comes in bags & taste pretty good.  I have never tried Lipton brand.

Before we assume this is true, you might want to check it for accuracy.

more information but still can't verify how these bags are processed without contacting Lipton

Lipton is okay for a store brand although nothing beats loose tea.

I found out that Bigelow brand does not use epichlohydrin.


The snippet below is from their website:

Alan,

Thanks for your comment and question.

Our papers are not coated with epichlorohydrin and do not contain any free epichlorohydrin in the product supplied.

If the Lipton tea bag is coated with or contains epichlorohydrin, I don't think you'd want to be using it.

If I was forced to buy teabags from a 'regular' supermarket, I'd probably buy Stash before I would buy Lipton -- if I had the choice.

I try my best to avoid the huge corporations' ideas of what food is.

I think I am going to go for Bigelow from now since they explicitly stated not using the chemicals.

I used to use unbleached coffee filters because I figured bleaching paper involved a chemical process but who would have thought that even tea bags were being bleached!

Ideally, you can buy unbleached empty tea bags, fill it with any loose tea and make your own
tea bags for travel.

Victoria...I bought Lipton because it was on sale.  I called Lipton & was told that their bags are not bleached.  Thanks to all of you for your input.  Love you all.

I’ve never heard of Stash.  On the road I carry Yogi & Health King tea bags with me.  Some of the hotels serve Bigalow & I like that.  At home I use sip right for B.  When Lipton is the only choice at hotels, restaurants, airports or friends’ homes, then I’ll drink it.

At home I drink Mr. Itaru's tea.  If I was on the road, I'd probably buy some organic teabags from my local natural food stores and carry them with me.  I do like better quality teas because they just taste so much better, and organic is important to me.
