Introducing Radiant Raspberry (and our New Look)!

glass-blog-spread

After 16 years of continuous growth for our glass bottled teas, we had lots of internal debates about whether we should try to update the line. Even though our beverages are the top-selling bottled tea line in the natural foods channel, we took a deep breath, and decided to challenge ourselves on the ingredients, the label art, and even the impact of the mission. So consider this your invite to joining us in celebrating a major milestone by transitioning organic sugar in the sweetened teas over to Fair Trade Certified™ organic sugar. It’s a big step in terms of furthering the Honest Tea mission, and the Fair Trade Certified logo now reflects the use of both tea & sugar ingredients in your favorite glass bottled tea. We’ve also joined 1% for the Planet, committing to donate the equivalent of at least one percent of sales from our tea line in 16 oz. glass bottles to organizations within the 1% For the Planet network. You’ll also notice our “refreshed” look. The answer came in the form of art—specifically, the realism that springs to life in oil paintings.  Our design team collaborated with a creative oil painter who understood both our excitement and hesitations in making this project a reality.  She was tasked with the challenge of artfully communicating our principles—honesty, transparency, whimsy, and ingredients you can feel good about—from concept to reality Using images of artwork we have around our office from past trips to the tea gardens, the oil painter brought to life the personality of each tea according to its origin and unique story. Each painting was then translated from paint, to canvas, to bottle by our talented in-house graphics team, making sure the final result stayed true to our roots. The new images are centered in the middle of our iconic “T” shape, so you’ll still be able to recognize Honest beverages on store shelves.

  1. I'm just wondering why I am seeing your tea made in plastic containers now at the store –I can't find glass bottles anymore and I won't drink out of plastic I don't care how healthy or "safe" they supposedly are.

    1. We still make the glass bottles! You can find them in the natural food section of most major grocery stores. If you're having trouble, you can also e-mail us and we'll tell you where you can find it near you: sethandbarry@honesttea.com. Hope this helps!

    1. That's a good one. E-mail us and we'll be able to tell you where you can find it: sethandbarry@honesttea.com. Thanks!

    1. Go ahead and e-mail our team your zip code and they will let you know: sethandbarry@honesttea.com. Hope this helps!

  2. Is it possible to still get half lemonade and half iced tea in a glass bottle anymore? I think I saw it in the big bottle but not in the regular size. if you stopped bottling it in glass, please consider making it again. It is delicious and it is very competitive with other non-organic versions that have theirs in glass. Plastic has its own issues that glass does not.

    1. Thanks for reaching out! At this time we aren't making the larger 32 fl. oz. glass-bottled Half Lemonade & Half Tea. We'll let our team know you'd like to see it back in the lineup! For a less-sweet option, try the Lori's Lemon (in a glass bottle) which can be found at most natural food stores and in the natural food aisle of your favorite grocery store!
