A Tea Company First
I started Townshend’s Tea Company in 2006 with the idea of serving great teas in a casual teahouse setting. Over the years, the effort of presenting the wide world of tea to our guests has expanded the Townshend’s collection to over 120 tea offerings, including classic teas, rare varieties, chai latte recipes made from scratch, authentic Taiwanese bubble tea, and an herbal apothecary line.
In 2008 we began making kombucha in the kitchens of our then two teahouses, giving it the name Brew Dr. Kombucha. It was only natural for us to choose some of the same great tea blends we had developed for service at our teahouses and ferment those into kombucha. It turns out that approach is unique, as the majority of commercially available kombucha is flavored with juice at the time of bottling. Our flavor profiles come from our attention to the quality and formulation of the organic tea and botanicals we use, creating a difference you can taste.
Today we operate eight teahouses and our organic 100% raw kombucha is distributed across the US and Canada. We have stayed true to our roots as a tea company, using high-quality organic tea in every batch. We hope you’ll agree our no shortcuts approach is worth the effort.
