A new tea company launches what they call a social experiment in downtown Orlando, putting the honor system to the test.


How honest are you when no one is watching?

A tea company put that question to the test in downtown Orlando over the weekend by offering free ice cold drinks at an unmanned kiosk with one request, leave a dollar.

The beverage company, Honest Tea, wanted to test the honor system and had a small group keeping tabs on people to see if they paid or passed on the drink.

Local 6 was watching as well and found a lot of people were honest and gave money.

Honest Tea is conducting the study in all 50 states. The company will release the national results in about two weeks.

This is the 6th year Honest Tea put the honor system to the test. Past results revealed Orlando to be 93 percent honest.
