Introducing My Family to Honest Tea versus Soda Review

This summer I've been spending a lot time with my family. Which is a great. But what's not so great is noticing their choice of drink to cool down with when the summer weather has been in the 90's and up. Soda?!

So let me just come right out and say, I gave up soda years ago for health reasons. I no longer drink it nor did I introduce my son to drinking soda, so he doesn't either. But for some reason my family still does. As if that's not bad enough, my pregnant sister is also drinking soda *gasp and clutch the pearls*

Note: I received product sample for review purpose. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

I felt it was time for a healthy summer drink intervention! So after receiving samples for review, I introduced my family to a selection of beverage from Honest Teas. Early this year I learned about them and sampled the Honest Kids beverages during The Mama’s Expo 2013 and really liked them.

So instead of drinking the soda, I asked my family to choose one of the Honest Teas beverages (there's a wide selection) to enjoy. My sister and niece each choose a beverage and enjoyed.

I was surprised but pleased to learn that my brother-in-law already knew about Honest Teas beverages and drinks them. He quickly enjoyed his without any prompting. LOL.

So my taste substitution was a success. My family enjoyed the Honest Teas beverages and hopefully will add them to their summer beverage list. I can only hope!

Why did I choose Honest Teas to share with my family? Because it's an organic bottled tea company that strives to create and promote great-tasting, healthier beverages.

Honest Tea beverages

Honest Tea's product lines include: Honest Tea ready-to-drink bottled teas, Honest Ade and Honest Kids organic thirst quenchers, and new Honest Fizz naturally sweetened zero calorie sodas. All tea, juice drinks and kids varieties are USDA Organic, and all tea varieties are Fair Trade Certified.

In addition Honest Tea extends economic opportunities to communities in need. This is a behind the scene aspect of the company that I really like. They engage and give back to their communities!

This month, Honest Teas has been involved with Boomers Run to Breathe, Undy 5000 (Colon Cancer Alliance), and was the sponsor for Super Saturday, supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

  4. I like the Honest Tea drinks! That new FIZZ drink is pretty amazing!

  5. I drink soda when I feel for it not often when I am pregnant I cant drink soda or juice it makes me sick HOWEVER if I am enjoying a nice meal that deserves a soda I may drink pepsi or ginger ale not that orange stuff lol but I always dilute it with water after I drink it lol but yes the honest tea was good but I just wanted to clear the air.
