I was recently contacted about some new flavors coming from a company called Honest Tea, I was intriqued. I've walked past their drinks at the grocery, but never picked any up to try myself. Before saying yes, I browsed their website. What I found there was really interesting. The folks at Honest Tea focus on all natural organic ingredients and fair trade certified black tea. With so many companies having to go back to using real ingredients, this one doesn't have to make any changes to please people who are looking for an all natural beverage choice.
Next, I sampled the Orange Mango with Mangosteen. Yeah, I know... you are wondering the same thing I was... what is Mangosteen? Its a fruit from Thailand that is full of anti-oxidents. Mixed in with the orange and mango, this is a citrus drink that I would prefer over the usual orange juice. It has a refreshing rather than "gack-inducing" flavor. I find that plain orange juice can sometimes make my throat feel all gummed up. Probably just me, but if orange juice is mixed with other fruit juices I can manage it a whole lot better. And, this beverage has your full day's worth of vitamin C. A very enjoyable way to fight off a cold if you ask me... I'm always reaching for a citrus juice when I get the sniffles.
I really enjoyed these drinks most when they were super ice cold. I noticed on their website that they also make organic, all-natural juice pouches for kids! I'm going to be searching them out when I go to the grocery store.
