Frequently Asked Questions

What is Motto?  

Motto began with a simple proposition – let’s make a beverage we’ll drink everyday that tastes good and makes our body feel good. Made with 6 simple ingredients; all from plants. Take one to the beach. Grab one for the road. Share a few with friends. It will make you feel great. Have a sip and see for yourself.

What are your ingredients?

Our drinks are made with 6 simple ingredients:

Apple Cider Vinegar
Fresh Lemon Juice
Organic Agave
Sea Salt
+ Matcha or Rooibos

All real. Nothing artificial. Fresh and functional. Our tea leaves, the lemons, the honey — we trace every ingredient to its source and we make no compromise on quality.

What are the health benefits of Motto?

Our drinks are made to make you feel great. You can check out our full list of benefits for Matcha + Rooibos here.

Is there caffeine in Motto?

Our Sparkling Matcha has ~25mg of caffeine per 12oz. can, compared to a cup of coffee which is generally in the ~100mg range. Our Sparkling Rooibos is naturally caffeine free.

How sweet is Motto?

We like to think just enough, which is to say: not very. We add a little honey and organic agave to our recipe because 1) it tastes great and 2) they’re a healthier alternative to the white sugar and corn syrup commonly found in soda.

What flavors do you offer?

We currently offer Sparkling Matcha, and Sparkling Rooibos.
Matcha is one of nature’s most powerful sources of vitality and wellness. Consumed as a whole food, matcha is a brilliant green powder made by stone-grinding the finest green tea leaves. It is the purest form of healthy tea.
Rooibos has been used for many centuries as an herbal remedy in South Africa. Rooibos has a smooth flavor and contains a wealth of antioxidants, enzymes, and minerals that provide powerful health benefits.

Where can I buy Motto?

Motto is available for purchase online, and at these stores. When you sign up for our emails, we’ll let you know as soon as we land in a store near you.

How do you pronounce Motto?  

It rhymes with lotto, grotto, and auto. And if you’re wondering why we picked it, well…a motto is something to live by, a short phrase or idea that offers inspiration and guidance; Motto’s motto is “Drink for Life.”

How should I store Motto?

In the fridge — Motto contains fresh ingredients that are best stored and enjoyed cold. Stored in the fridge, it will taste its best for up to 8 months; check the bottom of your can for a Best By date. And of course, if necessary, it’s fine for Motto to be kept unrefrigerated for brief periods.

How do I drink Motto?

We like it cold, right out of the can; bonus points for sipping it out in the sunshine. Just remember to give the can a little shake to mix in any ingredients that may have settled to the bottom.

Can you mix Motto with alcohol?

TBH, we like Motto best on its own…but if you have a combo you love, share it with us!

If I don’t finish my Motto, can I store it for later?

You certainly can — but Motto loses its fizz and flavor if it’s left open.

Where is your matcha from?

We’re proud to use matcha from Aiya, a family owned business founded in 1888. Based in Nishio, Japan, Aiya’s premium matcha is grown in a fertile environment perfect for creating rich, nutrient-dense tea.

Is Motto gluten-free?


Should I be concerned with BPA?

Nope! We use a BPA-Non Intent (BPA-NI) liner made by Ball Corporation, which is the highest possible standard in terms of avoiding BPA in plastic. BPA-Ni is compliant with California Proposition 65 requirements.

How are you making an impact on the planet?

As a member of 1% for the Planet, we contribute a portion of our profits to fund a wide array of environmental non-profits and initiatives across the globe. We also offset 100% of our emissions through the Mamoni Valley Preserve, an independent non-profit organization.
