Meet Sarah Langford and Dr. Banks
What was the inspiration behind Doc’s Tea?
Dr. Ken Banks, is a dentist in the eastern panhandle of WV. He is the brains behind the business of Doc’s Tea. He got very interested in loose leaf rooibos tea a few years ago. The more research he did on the health benefits of this herbal bush, the more he liked what he was drinking. The market is saturated with Ready to Drink Teas, but there was a gap when it came to Ready to Drink Rooibos Tea. Rooibos comes from the “red bush” and is grown naturally caffeine-free. You can find a lot of decaf teas, but to find something grown naturally caffeine-free is not as easy. And thus came the idea for a micro-brewed tea to fill this void.
Dr. Banks decided he wanted to brew this rooibos with unique flavor profiles. He took it a step farther and decided to brew himself because the benefits of micro-brewed tea (small batch RTD tea) exceeded what he was finding when he looked into co-packers. Doc’s Tea launched in June 2015 and now has 8 SKU’s and are getting ready to launch their 1st kid’s tea, Little Doc’s.
By brewing in small batches we don’t filter out all the healthy, good for you ingredients we put into our beverage. We also brew with actual tea leaves, no concentrates, and instead of just using flavors in our products, we use actual ingredients, for example, apple chips and cinnamon sticks are brewed into our Apple Cinnamon tea. Sweetened with monk fruit, you aren’t going to find more than 1g of sugar in an entire bottle and 10 calories or less in a bottle. Elderberry Blueberry and Sangria are our most popular, they are 0 grams of sugar and 5 calories in the bottle! Doesn’t get much sweeter than that for your health 🙂
