Luzianne’s “Southern Tea Party” Celebrates new Southern Blends Teas

The scent of sweet olive blooming on a summer evening in the Garden District of New Orleans set the stage for Luzianne® Tea’s “Southern Tea Party” in June. The livestreamed gathering offered guests a tribute to the Southern art of tea sipping and a first taste of Luzianne’s newly launched Southern Blends line of herbal and green teas. There are three teas in the product line, all featuring iconic fruits and botanicals of the South: Honeyed Peach Herbal Tea, Watermelon & Honey Green Tea, and Mint & Rose Blossom Green Tea.
