Remember a few weeks back when Camp McCain accused presumptive democratic nominee Barack Obama that his drinking organic Honest Tea made him ‘elitist’? Yea, we thought it was pretty hilarious — and in the spirit of elections, we’ve teamed up with Honest Tea to bring that same controversial yummy brew into your home.

The sampling consists of Honest Tea’s most popular USDA-certified Organic iced teas, Honest Ade thirst quenchers and Honest Kids drink pouches. Among those included will be the two newest teas to be brewed with Fair Trade Certified tea leaves – Lemon Black Tea and Peach White Tea – and the “Green Energy Teas” – Jasmine Green Energy Tea and Citrus Green Energy Tea. These teas earned their names not only because of their invigorating blends; but also because Honest Tea buy’s renewable energy credits through to offset all of the carbon emissions generated along the production chain, from tea garden to store shelf. To learn more, visit their official site here.

Thirsty? Leave a comment below to enter. Either talk about your love of Honest Tea or name your favorite 80s movie. Complete rules and giveaway details are available here.

Don’t forget! We’re still accepting entries for the Terralina Skin Care Gift Pack and the Rume Reusable Bag giveaways! Good luck!

    wahoo! I just discovered how awesome Honest Tea is blended with fruit and soft tofu. Yummy!

  • Corrie Grace

    Pretty in Pink-Molly Ringwald is the best

  • Nakiya

    First of all, I love tea and have never tried Honest Tea, so this seems like a very favorable option for me.

    Secondly, I am going to pick The Secret of My Success because it helped me to learn how to spell the word success with it’s very repetitive title song. “S-U-C-C-E-S-S, that’s the way you spell success.” Plus it was wonderfully cheesy like every good 80s movie should be.

  • jamie lynn

    ohhhh yummmm…

  • Alexis

    Can’t Buy Me Love – I watch it EVERY time it is on TBS!!

  • Tiffany

    I have to say Pretty in PInk also. I just watched it again a few days ago and it was so good! I also like the pomegranate white tea.

  • Rebecca

    I haven’t yet found a flavour of Honest Tea that I haven’t liked!

    As for 80s movies, It has to be Sixteen Candles. I love that movie.

  • Rachelle

    Honest Tea honestly is yummy!

    Going for late 80’s here…1989’s ‘Say Anything’ with John Cusack was a pretty cool flick.

  • Jennifer Parrucci

    A bottle of blueberry pomegranate honest tea gets me over my 4pm work lull.

    I haven’t tried Honeest Tea (yet), but my favorite 80s movie was “Top Gun” :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  • thordora

    HEATHERS! Barely in the 80’s, but still, it’s there. :)

  • Joleen

    The Goonies!

  • caela

    Weird Science is still my go to 80’s movie

  • Melynda

    How about E.T.? It’s a little outside the genre thought of when the term “80s movies” comes up, but it was a great flick.
    Haven’t tried the tea, but sure would love to.

  • Denise at Uniquely Tea

    I’m a tea lover, and my favorite 80s movie is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!

  • Carrie

    I love Honest Tea and would be thrilled to receive the Gift Pack. I read about how the company got started and the story is very inspiring.

  • Kai

    I’d love to try more Honest Tea… I have liked the flavors I have tried.

  • Summer

    Ohhh new Honest Tea flavors! I have loved many of the teas of their I’ve tried so far. Peach is always delicious when blended with tea, so I’d love to try that.

    80’s Movie – The Princess Bride!! Of course! LOVE that movie. I have it on DVD and still watch it when it comes on TV. And Back to the Future. Also awesome.

  • Natasha

    The Breakfast Club!

  • Nicole (ikkinlala)

    I can’t get the rules page to open so I’m not sure if I’m eligible, but I’d love to enter if Canadians may. I’ve only had the opportunity to try one kind of Honest Tea so far (Moroccan Mint Green Tea, which I found, oddly enough, at a small town cafe), but I liked it and I wish it was more widely available here.

  • Phoebe

    80’s movies: Who can forget “Back to the Future,” or “Indiana Jones”? I love that HonestTea offsets their carbon!

  • Khan R.

    E.T. is my favorite because it was the first movie I saw after I moved to the US that touched my heart.

  • Lauren

    Can’t Buy Me Love! Patrick Dempsey at his best! ;)

    I LOVE TEA!!! I would love to be able to try all the flavors! :)

  • Marie

    I love tea and I’ve been wanting to try this!

  • Beth

    I have never tried this tea but I would love to. So my favorite 80’s movie is Pretty in Pink.

  • jaxin

    I’ve loved Honesst Tea for years, but I do have to say I am totally bummed that they decided to start using plastic bottles! What is up with that?!

    Pom has gone the same route. I just don’t get it.

  • Kristen

    the breakfast club!

  • Mook Han Kim

    Would these tea packs taste good, as look good? Ask ET.

  • Janet Fricano

    My favorite eighties movie is Back To The Future.

    I would like to try Honest Tea.

    Thank you!

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun with a young Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt.

  • Key

    I’ve never tried Honest Teas before, but my favorite 80s movie is The Goonies!

  • Andrew

    honestly its pretty good

  • Lisa

    I love Honest Tea! Sublime Mate is my favorite.

    jax in- The plastic bottles aren’t replacing the glass bottles. They’re for different flavors that are sold in other markets.

    as for the 80s movie: Michael Keaton’s Batman!

  • kisah jackson

    bill & ted’s excellent adventure!

  • Tiffany

    I’d have to say The Bride with Sting and Jennifer Beals>

    My favorite 80’s movie is a tie between Labyrinth and The Princess Bride. :)

  • Sara

    After reading your article on John McCain my husband and I thought, “Wow we have not yet tried honest tea. Next time we see it lets get it”. I love tea and have to say it was wonderful. I would love to try some more different brews.

  • Erin Finn

    i am honest and love tea. i so want to try those teas. so so badly.

  • reeva

    i’d love to try this! I like the selection of flavors

  • VeggieTart

    jaxin, they say they use the plastic bottles because 1) it’s lighter to transport, and 2) there are places glass can’t go that plastic can.

    Now, I am a huge, huge fan of Honest Tea (just ordered a 24 pack of the Citrus Energy Green Tea online), and not just because they’re based in Bethesda, Maryland (I live in DC). In addition to the Citrus Energy, I love the Lori’s Lemon Tea and the Pomagranate Blue Honest Ade. No, I drink it because unlike too many tea drinks, it’s sweetened with cane sugar and doesn’t have the artificial crap I don’t want. If enjoying a natural organic beverage makes one elitist, then I guess I’m elitist.

    But Senator McCain, I’d say not being able to say how many damn homes you own is what really makes you look not only elitist but more than a little confused.

    Favorite 80s movie? “The Breakfast Club.”

  • Jen

    That stuff looks so good!

  • Doreen

    Pretty in Pink!! I have it on DVD! :)

  • Kathleen W.

    Honest Teas are truly the best. Not only are their ingredients really tasty and uniquely combined, but they don’t have much sugar. I prefer my teas unsweetened and these are the closest thing to that.

    Oh, and my favorite 80s movie is probably Pretty in Pink. I love the part where she makes her own prom dress out of another dress.

  • tree

    Mmmmmm….fruity tea.

  • Maria

    Mmmmm I looooove this tea!
