Honest Tea: Nectar from Heaven?

January 10, 2010

I’m still amazed at how great Honest Tea and Honest Ade drinks are. Honest Ade Cranberry Lemonade is the best – it goes down so smoothly and has just the right mix of cranberry juice and lemonade – followed by Peach White Tea and Orange Mango with Mangosteen. The Honest Kids drinks are really good too – they’re light.  The pomegranate drinks are a little heavy but maybe that’s just me. Honest Tea/Ade is organic – the most important part of that is that it’s free of pesticides – and it also has less sugar than other drinks. Some of their teas have no sugar at all.

A couple of Izze drinks are giving Honest Ade a run for its money, though. The Sparkling Blackberry is great, and the Sparkling Clementine and Sparkling Grapefruit are very good too.  Izze drinks have real juice and “no refined sugars, no caffeine, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors.” There are also a lot of Izze drinks I haven’t tried yet.

Ok, now Honest Tea has added Honest KOMBUCHA with probiotics. Sounds great.  This is just a little too much to keep up with, though. So anyway, here are my rankings:

1.  Honest Ade Cranberry Lemonade

2.  Honest Peach White Tea

3.  Izze Sparkling Blackberry

4.  Honest Ade Orange Mango with Mangosteen

5.  (Tie) Honest Kids, Izze Sparkling Clementine

(Yes, I know – I’m doing a blog about Honest Tea and Izze drinks while I have tons of unbelievably important stuff to do).
