Grandma Alice Wicks, at the age of 18, established a sweet tea in 1943 which became well known throughout churches and venues in the Metro Louisville Area. It was during various church events that this unique, distinct, flavorful tea became a buzz throughout the Louisville, KY community.
As the demand for Grandma Alice’s tea quickly began to rise, it was then that she took her grandson, Ontra L. 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.
