Organic Honey Green Tea - Why We Love It (Honest Tea)

Honest Tea’s Organic Honey Green Tea is a great way to help boost immunity naturally. How many “healthy” beverages have just four pronounceable ingredients? Not many. Here is our ingredients list:
· 2 grams of organic tea leaves
· 1 cup purified water
· 1 teaspoon organic cane sugar
· 1 teaspoon organic honey

Why organic? Tea leaves, unlike fruits and veggies, are never washed before brewing. That means that pesticides - if they were used in the growing process - are likely to end up in your beverage, and ultimately in your body.

Why green tea? Studies suggest that the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), found in green tea, has many health benefits and may protect against a range of cancers including lung, prostate and breast cancer. We test our organic teas to determine the antioxidant levels and strive to develop teas that are healthy and still taste good.

Why honey? Our organic honey offers just the right amount of sweetness to make it interesting.
