Last night on the Lower East Side Honest Tea created a pop-up museum at LFoley Art Gallery to launch their new glass bottle line and celebrate 20 glorious years in the business. Co-founder Seth Goldman greeted guests at the healthy and bountiful celebration to honor the brand.
Honest® Tea, the nation’s top-selling organic bottled tea. The milestone anniversary is being recognized with a redesign of its iconic glass bottle along with the introduction of three new premium flavors and expanded national distribution. The new 16. fl. oz glass bottle features a taller, modern silhouette. The glass-bottled tea line is part of the partnership with 1% for the Planet, where 1% of the annual sales are donated to environmental-focused organizations.
Honest Tea’s glass bottle line that now includes 15 refreshing varieties—all made with organic and Fair Trade Certified tea leaves and sugar. Samples at the soiree were divine and great indication at the upcoming success to reach the public. The line’s four unsweetened varieties include “Just” Green Tea, Cinnamon Sunrise Herbal Tea, Ginger Oasis Herbal Tea, and “Just” Black Tea, which are each zero calories. Other varieties are “Just a Tad Sweet®” and are 70 calories or fewer per bottle.
Exclusive to the glass bottle line are three new flavors that feature on-trend ingredients:
Golden Turmeric Pineapple Herbal Tea – Brewed ginger root, turmeric, and lemongrass with pineapple juice and cane sugar.
Lemon Grove Maple Black Tea – Black tea from India with organic maple syrup, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a touch of lemon peel and ginger root.
Mango Maté Black Tea – Brewed black tea brewed with yerba maté extract, mango puree, and sweetened with cane sugar.
