In February, The Coca-Cola Co.’s wholly-owned subsidiary Honest Tea will launch a new tea variety called Not Too Sweet Tea, which contains 40 percent less sugar and fewer calories than other sweet teas, the company says. A bottle has 100 calories and is sweetened with a blend of organic cane sugar and stevia. Like Honest Tea’s other products, Not Too Sweet Tea is both Fair Trade certified and U.S. Department of Agriculture-certified organic. A 16.9-ounce bottle will retail for about $1.49.
