The high temperature gradually faded, and it was autumn in the twinkling of an eye.

September is the season of sweet osmanthus fragrance, and snack generation has noticed that many brands have taken sweet osmanthus into taste to retain the taste of short autumn.

Among them, Lipton, a century old tea brand, also joined the “heat” of Osmanthus fragrans and launched new high-quality original leaf tea. Let’s take a look.


For a long time, qilitun, a tea brand founded in 1890 with a history of more than 100 years, has almost become a synonym for tea bags, and the office drinking scene created by this brand has also been deeply popular.

Following the new cold brew fruit tea launched at the end of July, Lipton chose China, the hometown of tea, to select high-quality original leaf tea from all over China, and launched three flavors of Lipton LOHAS pure tea bags: Sunrise golden Osmanthus (osmanthus oolong)

According to Lipton, the new product has four main features: including adding the whole flower bud picked in a limited season, choosing the original leaf tea from the tea garden that is limited in origin and meets the standard of the Rainforest Alliance, not adding any essence and sugar, making the product label “clean” and creative packaging, and paying attention to the “ritual feeling” of opening the box.

Sunrise golden Osmanthus (osmanthus oolong) is the main product of this series, targeting Guilin, one of the four major producing areas of Osmanthus in China, from August to September of the lunar calendar. In Guilin, every autumn, if the streets where osmanthus is planted are connected, a 127 kilometer golden “osmanthus corridor” can be formed.

Lipton picked this golden osmanthus with rich flower fragrance and matched it with Jinxuan Oolong produced in the high altitude area of Taiwan, China Province, China. After improvement, oolong tea made from Jinxuan variety has a unique milk fragrance. Sweet osmanthus fragrance superimposed with milk fragrance makes sunrise golden osmanthus have obvious and long sweet return.

This series also includes large leaf Pu’er mature tea from Lincang and Yiwu in Yunnan, or green tea from Huangshan and Sichuan, which all collide with different tea soup flavors.

The three new LOHAS pure tea bags are full of fresh and natural feeling. With dark colors and elegant hand-painted paintings, they bring out a poetic mood and give people a refreshing feeling. The positioning of the golden logo also highlights its high-end positioning. It is in line with the brand proposition that this new product hopes to bring consumers back to nature, pause busy moments and enjoy a slow life for a while.
