While trying to live a healthier lifestyle, it can sometimes be hard finding a beverage that is good for you, yet tastes good too. If you remember, back in November I posted a review of Honest Tea beverages. I really like their green tea varieties, and they're much better for you than sugar-loaded sodas and such. As a matter of fact, Honest Tea has higher levels of antioxidants than brewed tea leaves! Add to that, they have 50 calories or less per serving...you've got yourself a nice beverage that you don't have to feel guilty about drinking!
"Independent laboratory analysis has consistently proven that Honest Tea has antioxidant levels that are as high, or higher than brewed tea leaves. That's because unlike many bottled tea companies, Honest Tea uses real tea leaves when we make our tea. We've had our beverages independently tested at a number of laboratories, including Rutgers and all of our green teas have between 150-250 mg of Epigallocatechin Gallate, also known as EGCG, a key antioxidant found in green and white tea. Our beverages are either unsweetened or use much smaller amounts of sugar, honey, or agave syrup than most other bottled products. In fact, Honest Tea was created because there was a need for a less sweet, real tea beverage.
At Honest Tea, we are alarmed by the obesity epidemic gripping our nation. Super-sweet beverages loaded with sugar are often blamed for America's growing waistlines.
We believe that great-tasting beverages don't need to be loaded with sugar. In fact, they may have no sugar at all. From our Unsweetened Just Green and Just Black teas (no calories, no sugar) to our line of "tad sweet" drinks (50 calories or fewer, sweetened with organic cane sugar), Honest Tea and Honest Ade can be a healthy and delicious part of a sensible diet.
All Honest Tea products are certified as meeting the USDA's organic standards. This means that our beverages and tea bags are produced without antibiotics, pesticides, irradiation or bioengineering. Organic farmers are required to adhere to certain soil and water conservation methods, and their practices are monitored by third-party certification agencies."
