Product Feature: Honest Tea

Photo by V. Lok

I had so much fun today at The Mama’s Expo.  With three floors of action and a multitude of vendors to visit, it was exhausting!  Good thing Honest Tea was there!  They were the perfect booth to visit for a quick break and sample of their “refreshingly honest” drinks!

Though I am familiar with the brand and have had a few different flavors before from their Honest Tea, Honest Ade and Honest Kids line (Half and Half, Cranberry Lemonade, Lemon Tea are my faves.), what I didn’t know was that Honest Tea actually has a 59 oz version of their product.  I’ve only previously seen their 16 oz bottles (Honest Tea, Honest Ade) and Honest Kids juices in the stores near me.  The Honest Family Size (59 oz) is much more convenient and economical if you are a fan of their drinks and need more at home than the single serving bottles/pouches!  The Family Size line is available in nine great flavors – Honey Green Tea, Peach White Tea, Half & Half, Just Green Tea, Lori’s Lemon Tea, Mango White Tea, Honest Kids Berry Berry Good Lemonade, Goodness Grapeness. and Super Fruit Punch.

A couple other products that I didn’t know about but am looking forward to try are:

  • Honest Splash:  An evolution of Honest Kids pouches, Honest Splash is a great fit for older kids, or kids on the go, who need the convenience of a larger, re-closable container while still meeting the needs of parents who want to provide lower-sugar beverages.  This line is named “Splash” because the drinks are flavored with a splash of real juice.  Honest Splash is available individually or as 6-bottle multipacks in 3 varieties – Berry Good Lemonade, Goodness Grapeness, and Super Fruit Punch.
  • Honest Fizz:  A naturally sweetened soda with zero calories and zero sugars, it is available in 4 flavors – Lemon Limey, Orange Pop, Root Beer, and Spiced Cherry.

Here’s what else I learned about the company that makes them honest:

  • Independent laboratory analysis has consistently proven that Honest Tea has antioxidant levels that are as high, or higher than brewed tea leaves.  Honest Tea uses real tea leaves when they make their tea.
  • Honest Tea beverages are either unsweetened or use much smaller amounts of sugar, honey, or agave syrup than most other bottled products.
  • In 2003, Honest Tea became the first to make a Fair Trade Certified™ bottled tea.
  • All Honest Tea products are certified as meeting the USDA’s organic standards.  This means that their beverages and tea bags are produced without antibiotics, pesticides, irradiation or bioengineering.

More information regarding Honest Tea’s mission and philosophy, as well as where you can purchase their drinks, can be found on their website:
