Coca-Cola’s Honest Tea to be sold in Keurig ‘K-cups’

Honest Tea, an organic tea beverage from Atlanta-based Coca-Cola Co., now will be available in “K-cups” from Keurig Green Mountain Inc., the two companies announced Wednesday.

The product will be among a line of Keurig offerings that brew hot over ice. Honest Tea will be available starting Thursday on in two selections: unsweetened Just Green and Just Black iced teas.

Coca-Cola and Keurig signed a 10-year agreement in February to develop Coke products for Keurig’s at-home beverage system, called Keurig Cold.

Coke acquired a 10 percent stake in Keurig Green Mountain for about $1.25 billion. The agreement allows Coke to raise its stake up to 16 percent over 36 months.

Coca-Cola acquired Honest Tea in 2011.
