We’ve been working a long time to find the right balance between tea and juice, and based on the strong response to our new Half & Half, I think we’ve honestly found it.
Bethesda, MD (Vocus) March 6, 2010
Offering a healthier approach to the iconic Half & Half, Honest Tea uses USDA certified organic black tea from India and blends it with lightly sweetened lemonade for a perfect balance between sweet and tart. The new variety brings the antioxidant benefits of black tea, combined with organic lemonade and just a touch of organic cane sugar, creating a refreshingly smooth finish, reminiscent of summer and available year round. The drink has 12g of sugar and 48 calories per 8-oz serving.
“We’ve been working a long time to find the right balance between tea and juice, and based on the strong response to our new Half & Half, I think we’ve honestly found it,” said Seth Goldman, president and TeaEO of Honest Tea.
Half & Half is the latest edition of Fair Trade Certified™ beverages to join Honest Tea’s PET line of innovative teas and thirst quenchers. The Half & Half variety will be available across the country, including all CVS stores March 2010 for a suggested retail price of $1.49 to $1.79.
