Honest Tea’s launch in Singapore October 2018


honest tea launch event

As Singaporeans, we are used to an eternal summer and are always looking for ways to beat the heat with a refreshing beverage.

Lucky for us, one of America’s best-selling organic bottled teas, Honest Tea, is coming to Singapore and it checks all the boxes by being not only refreshing but also lightly sweet without any artificial sweeteners. 

So if you’d like a taste of true “Honest Tea” (pun intended), you can pop by The Cathay from 5-6 October to try it out at an experiential sampling booth for free. It’s part of Honest Tea’s launch in Singapore, so there’ll be other fun activities too – for instance, a polygraph machine that will get your friend to spill the tea, for real.  


About Honest Tea 


Honest Tea is America’s top-selling organic bottled tea, specialising in beverages that are organic and Fair Trade certified. And if you take a sip of it, you’ll find it just a little sweet, thanks to natural ingredients like honey, cane sugar and fruit juice. No overly cloying tastes, here.

PSA for health-conscious individuals: Honest Tea is also recognised by the Health Promotion Board as the Healthier Choice!

And you can pick from a slew of fun flavours – can’t choose between lemonade or tea? Get the Half-Tea & Half-Lemonade flavour. Love yourself some fruit? Try the peach, mango or pomegranate flavours.

Plus it’s all organic, certified so by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). In other words, it’s free of pesticides and other harmful additives, so you can drink up without worry.

Besides knowing you’ll get a refreshing drink when you pluck it from the aisle, you can rest easy knowing that Honest Tea adopts ethical tea production practices. The tea’s ingredients are ethically-sourced – their tea leaves are hand-plucked by farmers in India and China who are fairly compensated. 

Besides wages, Honest Tea continues its emphasis on Fair Trade by giving back to their tea and sugar sourcing communities, ploughing in more than US$500,000 in 2016 to improve farming, healthcare and education.


Honest Tea launch in Singapore from 5-6 October


After hearing about this new beverage, you might be wondering – where can I get my hands on it? Have no more FOMO, just be at The Cathay from 5-6 October for the launch where these activities await:


Sample the tea for free 


Get right to it and taste this organic beverage for yourself. But it’ll be more than just an experience for the palate as the sampling booth is downright immersive – it’s made to look like a tea-leaf plantation that you can walk through!

Staff will also be giving out tea samples and sharing about the Honest Tea story, so you’ll be forgiven if you think you’re in the cool hills and valleys of their source tea regions like India or China for a moment.


Try a polygraph test and win prizes at the Honest Tea Detector Challenge


Ever heard of polygraph machines? Yes, those are the stuff of spy movies which can tell whether you’re telling the honest truth. And you can try them out for yourselves, at the Honest Tea Detector Challenge booth.

Here, you’ll find polygraph machines complete with data graphs and heart-rate measuring tools to determine whether your friend is fibbing. Useful, for instance, when they swore you’re their top pick for best man or maid of honour OR to find out if they really like your fashion sense.

Heads up – questions like these might be asked 😉

There’s also the challenge bit: answer 4 tricky questions honestly – as deemed by the machine – and you’ll win Honest Tea merchandise**!

Bonus: Look out for the photo booth area where you can snap a shot for your IG with the lush plant-adorned background. Make sure to tag @HonestTeaSG and use #HonestTeasg

**While stocks last.
