People first.
Tea a close second.

Our Mission

We created Steaz with one goal in mind: to help people lead healthier lives. We do that by providing people with the best tasting beverages on the planet, made the right way.

Do right by everyone.

At Steaz, we measure success in a different way. Our “triple bottom-line” business model is steeped in our core values:


We strive to create the healthiest beverages we can for our fans.


We try to do our part to keep this planet healthy by supporting socially and environmentally responsible ingredient partners who grow in sustainable ways.

Profits (for our farmers)

We know that without our farmers, there is no Steaz. That’s why we buy Fair Trade, giving them a fair return on the tea and sugar we buy.

About Fair Trade


Steaz is proud to partner with organizations that share our brand values of social responsibility and giving back to the global community.

We’re a licensed partner of Fair Trade USA, helping to empower family farmers and workers around the world to earn a fair, livable wage.

And for every can of Steaz sold in Whole Foods, we make a contribution to the Whole Planet Foundation, which helps provide loans to microentrepreneurs all over the world.

Our Team

Steaz makes award-winning iced tea and energy drinks. But our team is what we’re most proud of. Since we were founded in 2002, our people have worked tirelessly to make ours a brand that really does make a difference. We couldn’t do it without them.
