Summer heat in Japan can be quite tiresome and without a doubt, you will want to drink something refreshing all the time. Almost everyone knows about Lipton tea and this summer, you can enjoy a cup of cold fruit tea as you shop along Omotesando in Tokyo.
The concept for the time-limited store is Fruits In Tea To Go !!! #fruitsintea
If you’re not in a hurry, you can even sit back and enjoy this cool drink on the 2nd floor.
Since Omotesando is close to Harajuku and is a popular place to hang out even among Japanese, we recommend you go during the week. Weekends = long queues!
HOW TO ORDER
(1) Tumbler or Cup
You can choose either a cup or an Original Lipton Tumbler which is available in three different designs.
The cost for the cup is 600 yen and tumbler is 1000 yen (both tax inclusive). You can also bring your own tumbler!
(2)Special or Custom
With the custom menu you can mix and match while the special menu is fixed and you can choose from the three options below.
First choose the type of bottle (limited quantities) and then create your own unique mix.
1. Cold brew tea: cold brew earl grey tea; pineapple & hibiscus tea; green tea
2. Base Fruits: Pineapple, orange, strawberry, lime, grapefruit, lemon
3. Topping Fruits: Raspberry, peach, kiwi, mango, blueberry, lychee
4. Special Accent: Color tapioca to mint
5. Syrup: Hibiscus, sugarcane, plum, coconut, etc.
We tried pineapple and hibiscus tea with lychee and this is how it looked!
The best part is that you can get a refill after you finish your drink as long you still have ice left in the bottle.
We tried the green tea, the second time around!
You can also add cinnamon, vanilla, salt or even turmeric to your teas! Definitely a healthy twist…
For 1000 yen, you get your tea in a cool yellow bottle that you can use in the future.
