Fashion week. Running around the whole day from one show to another can be a
little taxing especially when it’s scorching hot outside, but to my delight
there was a Lipton booth available at Lakme Fashion Week this season. Lipton
has specially created a unique Mocktail menu for fashion week. The Mocktails
were all made of Lipton green tea and various other ingredients like pomegranate,
cinnamon, orange juice etc. Personally I love tea, especially when it is iced
and you have options like Tea Mojito, Green Tea and Orange Collard, Pomegranate Mar’TEA’ni, Hot Tea Cider, and the
lovely Harvest Sangria to choose from. From models to photographers, everyone
(Including myself) was hovering near the Lipton stall to recharge and refresh
themselves in-between shows. We all know how beneficial green tea is for us! It was good to see how one can reinvent the
conventional green tea in so many new ways.
