(Bethesda, Md. – June 14, 2012) - Honest Tea®, the nation’s top-selling organic bottled tea company announces the availability of a fresh brewed iced tea system nationwide. All four varieties–Classic Green Tea, Just Iced Tea, Lemon Herbal Tea, and Raspberry Tea (naturally flavored)–are USDA organic, gluten free and contain no genetically modified organisms (meaning Honest Tea does not use ingredients produced using biotechnology). All of the teas used are Fair Trade Certified™.
“Our new Fresh Brewed tea is a wonderful new way for people to enjoy great-tasting tea just like we make it in our Bethesda kitchen,” says Honest Tea’s co-founder and TeaEO Seth Goldman. “Now restaurants and cafes will be able to offer high-quality, organic tea, either unsweetened, or just a tad sweet.”
Honest Fresh Brewed Iced Tea is available in four varieties:
- Classic Green Tea – organic Fair Trade Certified™ green tea sweetened with ‘just a tad’ organic cane sugar.
- Just Iced Tea – organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea sourced from tea gardens in the Assam region of India, unsweetened.
- Lemon Herbal Tea – a caffeine-free blend of organic Indian tulsi (also known as Holy Basil), lemongrass, lemon peel and lemon myrtle combines to create a mildly spicy, yet calming taste.
- Raspberry Tea (naturally flavored) – organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea sourced from the Korakundah tea gardens in southern India combined with pieces of organic orange peel that carry the natural raspberry flavors. Organic purple potatoes (rather than synthetic dyes) are used for a rich berry color.
The fresh brewed iced tea varieties were adapted from Honest Tea’s bottled beverages including Classic Green Tea, Just Green Tea, Heavenly Lemon Tulsi and Raspberry Fields
Fresh brewed Honest Tea is available to be brewed in specialty BUNN systems.
