Brew Dr. Tea Company was founded originally as Townshend’s Tea Company, in 2006. Founder Matt Thomas started the company inspired by the idea that the various ways in which people enjoy great tea should be brought together under one roof, in a comfortable and inviting, community-oriented space. During those first few years, he constantly experimented and rolled out new tea concoctions one after the other. In 2008, he started making kombucha in the teahouse basement, giving it the name Brew Dr.
Over the decade that followed, Matt opened more teahouses and continued crafting kombucha. Both the tea and kombucha efforts were run as one, but no one really knew it. In 2019, Matt made the decision to leave the Townshend’s name behind and unite all our efforts under one company name, Brew Dr. Tea & Kombucha.
Our teahouses remain the place where we celebrate everything tea can be. We offer a thorough list of teas from all categories (black, green, white, chai, herbal) as well as beverages with tea as the main ingredient. And our kombucha is made with the same great tea blends we developed at our teahouses.
