New York, NY (September 13, 2011) – Honeydrop Beverages, leading producer of natural teas and juices made with a spoonful of honey, are proud to announce the most recent additions to the brand’s low calorie, gluten free beverage line: Green Tea, Lemon Tea, and Lemon Ginger Tea. Joining Honeydrop’s current line, which includes Blood Orange, Blueberry, and Chamomile Tea, each bottle is made with fresh brewed teas and all natural juices, containing 90 calories or less. In addition to offering functional health benefits which range from immune boosters and antioxidants to digestive aids, calming qualities and more, with each bottle purchased, new beehives are built in communities across the country through the company’s “Buy a Bottle – Save a Bee” campaign.
“We are really excited to add three new, fresh brewed teas to the Honeydrop line,” says CEO and Founder, David Luks. “We continue to work towards our goal of creating low calorie beverages that taste great without using any refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, or chemicals. Following the launch of our first three flavors, we listened closely to consumer feedback and developed a plan to introduce a series of simple, more traditional teas – which led to the introduction of our new Lemon, Lemon Ginger and Green Tea options.”
David Luks founded Honeydrop in 2009 after a battle with cancer lead him to learn about living a natural lifestyle and the extraordinary health benefits of honey. Built on the simple idea of offering consumers a flavorful and healthful drink that is derived from the land, not the lab, Honeydrop’s teas and juices offer consumers a healthy, low-calorie alternative to the many sugary sodas, teas and juice drinks available in stores.
Along with the launch of these new flavors, Honeydrop recently unveiled their “Buy a Bottle – Save a Bee” initiative, which helps to raise awareness about Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), an epidemic threatening the global bee population. Through this program, a percentage of the profits from every bottle of Honeydrop sold will be donated to carefully selected local beekeepers to build and maintain new beehives. Each new beehive increases the bee population by 40,000-60,000 bees, helping to combat Colony Collapse Disorder.
Each 14 oz. glass bottle of Honeydrop contains one tablespoon of pure wildflower honey, domestically sourced from regional beekeepers across the U.S. Honeydrop is available at leading natural and gourmet grocers nationwide, including Whole Foods and Nugget Markets, for an MSRP of $1.99.
