Big Time Tea has received Non-GMO Project verification for Little Me Tea, the company’s first-to-market, no-sugar-added, certified organic tea and juice boxes. Little Me Tea has never used GMO ingredients in its products, and this third-party verification allows consumers to shop with confidence and retailers to trust that they are carrying a quality product with full transparency in their stores, according to Big Time Tea.
“We are delighted to be an industry leader providing trustworthy and responsibly-produced ingredients in Little Me Tea,” said founder Melinda Hicks. “We have always believed in creating healthier drink options for children, and this latest Non-GMO Project verification is another way for consumers to know we want what is best for their kids.”
Little Me Tea is caffeine-free tea sweetened only with fruits and veggies and boasts the lowest sugar content of any kid’s drink on the market with 6g of sugar (from juice) and 25 calories per 6.75-oz. juice box, the company says. Available in two flavors, Julia’s Tropical Tea and Zane’s Grape Tea, each is made with a blend of white, Rooibos, hibiscus and chamomile teas that offer a host of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Little Me Tea also is gluten free, vegan and contains no synthetic ascorbic acid. Little Me Tea is available at select Whole Foods Markets and independents throughout the U.S.
