Lipton brews up a new creation for dairy-free drinkers

Dairy-Free Tea?

After getting over my initial two-second panic of WAIT HAS THERE BEEN MILK POWDER IN TEABAGS THIS WHOLE TIME, all chill resumed.

Lipton have released a brand new tea, created specifically for dairy-free milks. HUZZAH!

Betcha wondering why…

Well, dietitian, nutritionist and plant-based babe Rebecca Gawthorne explains it well:


“Whilst there has been a rise in the availability of plant-based foods, not all dairy free alternatives are compatible with other products as intended. This means that myself and other plant-based eaters miss out on the foods we love.

If you’re a tea lover like me, you’ll know that when you add dairy free milk to tea, the milk can split and leave a bitter, dull taste in your mouth. Since making the switch from dairy to plant-based milk, I’ve avoided milk entirely but now dairy avoiders, or tea-gans like me can finally enjoy their favourite cuppa without compromising on flavour.”


Milk splits are honestly the worse. Almost worse than attempting a real life one (insert groin injury here).

As I’m primarily a soy gal, I don’t experience it much, but HECK if it doesn’t almost always happen with almond or nut milks. A curdley, unsexy mess.


If you have cried over bitter not-quite-right cuppas since day 1 of your vegan journey, grab a tissue, wipe your tears and lets boil beech.

One: fill kettle with water.

Two: pour boiled water into mug with tea bag.

Three: add your dairy-free mulk of choice (for me that is Bonsoy or Aldi Organic Soy, but you can fly with oat, coconut, almond, rice, cashew, hemp – WHATEVER.)



Ok look, let’s be real – she’s still black tea. Initially I could honestly tell zero difference compared to my past dairy-free cuppas but I’m almost exclusively an Earl Grey drinker when it comes to tea, so maybe my opinion is jack.

Halfway through though, I did notice it vibed more. Is that a thing? These high-quality Kenyan & Rwandan tea leaves might truly be a tad richer…

Without question, I need to do a side by side of their regular and Dairy-Free to see. Also with god forbid, a dairy-free milk other than my beloved soy! Make sure you’re following me on Instagram @abetterkind to see a comparison vid in the coming days. Will be testing with different mulks and the regular Lipton brew.


If you make me a hot beverage of any kind – heck I was once an avid Lapsang Souchong drinker – I’ll happily cuddle and devour it.

Add a bikkie and we just became best mates.

Add a vegan donut or cake in the mix, and I may spill my deepest darkests.


And that’s the tea.

Lipton Dairy-Free is now available from Woolworths, Independants and IGAs nationally.
