In 2020, Atlanta beverage experts Seth Ninger, Jason Santamaria, Chris Doyle and Gregg Cohen teamed up with the goal of creating delicious, health-oriented, functional beverages. They felt that too many drinks on the market were overloaded with artificial sugars and other additives, and they wanted to do something about it. They formed a company, Portfolio Beverages, Inc., and its new product line, Real Good Tea (RGT), is now available in local stores and online. RGT is formulated using all natural premium teas, vitamins, botanicals and 50 milligrams of high-quality hemp extract per can.
“Real Good Tea is ideally suited as a health companion for those on a wellness journey,” says Tamika Carlton, the company’s director of marketing. “We are excited to bring four functional beverages to the market that are not only delicious but support the goals of health-minded individuals.”
The four current blends are: Rise-Up, Stay Well, Destress and Wind Down. Each beverage contains ingredients that support the target intention. The 12 ounce cans of tea are sold in packs of four, eight, and 12 and range in price from $23.99 to $65.99.
The co-founders bring industry expertise to the newly formed company. COO Seth Ninger was formerly Director of Operations for Farmers Market Wellness, Chief Information Officer Jason Santamaria has worked in the beverage industry for more than eight years, and Chief Product Officer, Chris Doyle, has worked in beverage manufacturing for more than eight years. Gregg Cohen serves as CEO.
