While saying "I got tea!"80% of the contents of cups presented by mothers are in Lipton “tea bags”Isn't it? A tea bag that you can easily enjoy tea just by pouring hot water. Among them, Lipton's Sole is an item that is also useful for busy mothers because it can be easily purchased at supermarkets and convenience stores [maybe].
It features that yellow package, but it's a bit reassuring to see it in the kitchen at home. By the way, did you know that Lipton has a real store?と こ ろ When I actually went there, I was able to enjoy not only tea but also a wide range of menus.
・ 90 years since opening in Kyoto
Apparently, Lipton is deeply related to Kyoto. Lipton's official website introduces three stores in Kyoto, including the “Head Office” in Sanjo, the “Porta Store” in Kyoto Station, and the “Tea House Store” in Shijojimachi. By the way, it seems that a store in Sanjo, Kyoto opened in 1930, 90 years ago, as the "Café Department Far East Branch, which is directly under Lipton's head office."
Because of the trouble, the reporter visited Sanjo Honten. In fact, I had been in front of the store many times as a student, but I wasn't aware that it was a Lipton store. It has a slightly different taste from the impression of a tea bag.
・ There was also a lunch menu
The large shop is full of regulars, students, and international customers. There is a mysterious atmosphere in which new and old parts unique to Kyoto are mixed. I was surprised when I was passed through the table and opened the menu.Not just tea !!
In addition to drinks such as coffee, there is even a lunch menu. Ordered “Shrimp fry and hamburger lunch [1500 yen including tax]” as the sales clerk proceeded. It is said that tea or coffee will be attached, so tea is selected.
The lunch that came after a while is an exciting visual like a child's lunch. A moderately sized hamburger is full of meat flavor. The shrimp fries are also crispy and delicious. Above all, I'm happy with the salad served on it.
And above all, the tea is delicious ~ !!!! I want to drink not only the tea for lunch but also the other tea on the menu at the next opportunity. Although the image of tea bags was too strong, it is still a tea specialty store. But was only a little stay, was a shop that can feel the reason has been loved 90 nearly a year in Kyoto.
Lipton's real stores that are likely to be everywhere, but not so many. Ants who love tea bags and go with their mothers. By the wayThe menu is slightly different for each storeIt looks like.
