Online PR News – 19-May-2015 – Louisville Kentucky – Down Home Tea is sharing its story with the world, enjoying corporate growth and, expanding its market. Much of this is due to its recent participation of the Kentucky Proud program and partnership with Kroger.

Down Home Tea currently retails at a price point of $1.99 for a 20 ounce bottle of RTD tea. The humble beginning of DHT is a story worth sharing and one that will inspire others who have artisan products to bless the world with.

Down Home Tea is much more than just a beverage, it is a legacy in a bottle. Grandma Alice Wicks created this artisan tea recipe in 1943, at the age of 18. Over the years her crafted tea became a requirement throughout churches and venues in the Metro Louisville area. The tea was so refreshing and had such a unique, distinct flavor that it gained a dedicated following. Grandma Alice then had the chance to see her tea served to dignitaries, politicians and well known community trailblazers.
As the demand for Grandma Alice’s tea quickly began to rise, it was then that she took her grandson, Ontra Caples, under her wing and began to teach him the secret recipe. In 1993, the recipe was handed down to Ontra with Grandma Alice’s blessing, and the birth of Down Home Tea was complete. Down Home Tea strives to connect those who drink it with the love, faith and spirit of perseverance Grandma Alice has engraved in her family, friends and community. Down home Tea is simply the best and we promise, “Once you taste it; you won’t waste it!”
