Make Someone’s Day: Share an #honestcompliment

Posted on Updated on


Here at Honest Tea’s headquarters in Bethesda, MD, we conducted a very unscientific study to find out what (other than our beverages) makes people smile. The results? A nice word of positive sentiment goes a long way.

Since we had such a great time sending honest compliments to each other, we decided to share our positive thoughts with some of our favorite people—you, our fans!  As a result, we are proud to introduce our newest innovation: the “Honest Compliment Booth!”

All over the country, Honest Compliment Booths are sprouting up to share positivity and one-of-a-kind compliments as given out by our specially trained professional complimentors.  Along with an ice cold HONEST beverage, we think we’ve unlocked the secret to making the world a happier place.

If you see one of our compliment booths, we encourage you to stop by to say hello. If you spread the love and compliment one of your friends on twitter using #honestcompliment, we’ll enter you to win a week’s worth of honest compliments and a month’s worth of Honest Tea.  Now that’s something worth smiling about!

If It’s Not Real, It’s Not Honest

What Are You Made Of?

Posted on Updated on


At Honest Tea, we are driven by brewing teas with organic tea leaves and real ingredients.  Fans have told us they appreciate reading the real ingredients we use each time they refresh the HONEST way.  We thought we’d turn the mic over and ask our fans, what are you made of?  We took a trip from Honest Tea HQ to Sweetlife Festival in Columbia, MD to find out!

At Sweetlife we set up an 8 ft live mural and witnessed hundreds of people take the opportunity to write down a word, place it anonymously in the honesty box, and watch their word come to life on canvas.  We had the pleasure of hosting Greg Gersch, Graphic Facilitator who does Graphic Recording, Ideation and Brand Identity to organize and design everyone’s words into the HONEST mural on the spot.  It was honestly inspiring to see such overwhelming participation; many shared profound words of inspiration, dedication and hard work, while others just had a lot of fun sharing something unique about themselves.  You have the exclusive first-look at the finished mural!  Resonate with any of these words?  It’s not too late to share with us what you’re made of—tell us below in the comment section!
