It’s Hot. Win Iced Tea.

Congratulations to Stephanie and thank you everyone who entertained us with your stories of how hot it is where you are. Stay cool everyone! Yep, it’s late July and hot as heck just about everywhere. Doesn’t it sound perfect to cool down with some ice-cold tea? We know! That’s why we’ve just introduced our new line of 365 Everyday Value Organic ready-to-drink teas. Now these aren’t just your run-of-the-mill ordinary bottled teas. These new teas are organic and Whole Trade®, which ensures the ingredients are grown with a commitment to ethical trade, the environment and quality products. And 1% of the sale of Whole Trade products benefits the Whole Planet Foundation™. That’s doing good twice (three times if you count the good it does you to drink great tea!). A majority of our tea leaves are grown in China and India — both known for their superior quality in tea leaf production — and our teas are bottled in the USA using 45% post consumer recycled plastic. We’ve created four flavored and lightly sweetened 16-ounce bottled teas and two unsweetened 64-ounce value options. Here’s the rundown: In 16-ounce bottles:
  • Organic Mint Green Tea
  • Organic Lemon Black Tea
  • Organic Peach Oolong Tea
  • Organic Mango Acai White Tea
In 64-ounce containers:
  • Organic Green Tea
  • Organic Black Tea
We encourage everyone to give these great teas a try, and we’re going to jump start some supercharged cooling by choosing one reader to win a case of these delightful teas. Tell us why it’s sooooo hot where you are and why you think you should win the case of tea. We’re going to choose one winner at random but hey, make your story good ‘cause we want to sit back with a fun read and an ice-cold glass of tea. Enter your comment by August 4th.
