Snapple and Grammy award-winning pop-rock band Maroon 5 have partnered to launch ‘Tea Will Be Loved’—a blend of green tea and black tea with notes of pomegranate and berries. Tea Will Be Loved will benefit Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, by helping to provide 1,750,000 meals to those in need.
This limited release Snapple tea will be available at participating retailers nationwide beginning on September 1, 2011.
Tea Will Be Loved is a five-fruit mash-up of the best stuff on Earth, with each band mate choosing their own flavor to add to the tea: pomegranate, orange, blackberry, raspberry and hibiscus. Tea Will Be Loved features 13 specially marked gold Snapple caps with Real Facts about Maroon 5 and Feeding America, such as Real Fact No. 682: Maroon 5’s former name was “Kara’s Flowers.” The band also contributed to the graphic design of the packaging for the new tea.
As part of the partnership, Snapple and Maroon 5 will donate $250,000 to Feeding America. Feeding America is a network of more than 200 food banks that serve every community in the United States by distributing food and grocery products through more than 61,000 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other emergency feeding centers. Feeding America serves more than 37 million Americans, including 14 million children and three million seniors.
