In a similar vein to Alconja's answerAlconja's answer, how about this?

A FLAG.

I'm surprisingly standard,

A flag can also be called a standard (as in battle standard)

But can ban if required.

... or a banner, which can also mean "one who bans". A ban on an SE user's account may result from a flag being raised by another user.

Found in tea, less often than more,

This is probably a golf reference: "tea" is a homophone of "tee" and flags are found on golf courses (on the tee perhaps? I don't know enough about golf to say).

I might also clear your sock drawer.

As Alconja says, SE moderators sometimes have to delete sockpuppet accounts - the fact of sockpuppeting may be drawn to their attention by a flag raised by another user.

Another possibility (even more similar to Alconja's answer) is

a MODERATORMODERATOR: they can ban other users, delete sockpuppet accounts, and probably drink tea.

I can't make that fit the first line though.
