Lipton, one of America’s leading portfolio of teas, is partnering with tastemakers and lifestyle experts on a campaign set to inspire consumers to ‘Feel the Taste’ of summer all season long.
As the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day marks the perfect time for consumers to toss aside their sweaters and enjoy all that the sun-filled summer has to offer. To celebrate, Lipton is releasing its first-ever Lipton “Summer TASTES Report,” featuring content and tips on what to see, make and do this summer. Curated by experts including New York City mixologist Scott Fitzgerald and entertainment host, actor and tastemaker, Mario Lopez, Lipton’s “Summer TASTES Report” can be found exclusively on Lipton’s Facebook pages beginning today.
Lopez says, “Summer is my favorite season because you can feel the taste of warmer weather in everything you do – including, of course, food and drinks. That’s why I’m excited to team with Lipton Iced Tea to release the ‘Summer TASTES Report’ and inspire people to feel the taste of summer all season long.”
Lipton Iced Tea is also hosting an array of activities for consumers throughout the season, each poised to enhance the sun-filled months ahead, including:
