“This is a pinch-me moment. When my co-founder Barry and I started Honest Tea out of my Bethesda, Maryland kitchen in 1998 we dreamed someday our idea for a less sweet, organic and mission-driven brand would spread around the world.

During the first ten years of the business, we were more worried about staying afloat than worrying about whether “Honest” would translate into different languages.  

But today we are thrilled that the Honest brand will be making its own British debut – we can’t wait to share our drinks with you – and are confident that the “Honest” name and brand values will resonate on this side of the Atlantic. 

We know that the UK is beginning its journey towards enjoying bottled herbal tea drinks and we hope this is the start of a special relationship.  We also hope that you will help us keep our brand Honest, just as our fans do in the USA – if you ever see us fail to live up to our mission, please let us know at sethandbarry@drinkhonest.co.uk

Just take a sip and taste the Honest difference.

*As required by European organic regulations

Honest is certified by the Soil Association – the UK’s largest organic certification body and environmental charity. Whenever you see the organic symbol you can be sure the food and drink you buy was produced to the very highest standards.
