about us

ASHEVILLE TEA COMPANY BLENDS LOCALLY-SOURCED, SEASONAL BOTANICALS & HIGHEST-QUALITY TEAS SO YOU CAN ENJOY A LOVELY CUPPA MORNING, NOON & NIGHT. 

Steeped by our desire to bring local craft tea and “everyday tea culture” to Western North Carolina, founder Jessie Dean began her vision for Asheville Tea Company in 2015.

As a West Asheville mom, keen traveler and outdoor enthusiast, Jessie is on a mission to combine her love of a good cuppa with her passion for the area's unique ingredients.

We care most about clean and healthful ingredients, new flavors and supporting Carolina farms and businesses, In partnering with regional farmers and proprietors, Asheville Tea Company blends organically-grown herbs, botanicals and small batch artisanal offerings to bring the flavors of Asheville into each of our handcrafted teas. 

We highlight an array of flavors, from ginger to lime basil. We are also the first tea company to utilize our Beer City, USA locale to partner with craft breweries to brew tea with spent grains.  We pepper high-quality green and black teas, sourced from Carolina tea purveyors, with Asheville-made chocolate, caramel, flowers, herbs and spices, and seek to source local and regional ingredients entirely for our herbal tisanes and Yaupon teas.

Asheville’s farm-to-table culture and craft beverage industry inspires us as small business owners and we are excited to bring our love of craft teas to your home.

WHERE TO FIND US:

We sell our range of teas at local tailgate markets and cafes in and around Asheville.

Steep your daily adventure with The Other Craft Brew!

YAUPON

Yaupon (a type of holly) is North America’s only native “tea” plant and the only edible caffeinated plant indigenous to the Southeast.

Used by Native Americans, it is high in antioxidants and theobromine, which is the same euphoric substance in dark chocolate. And it's slightly lower in caffeine than black or green tea.

GREEN TEA 

Tea drinking in China dates back to more than 4,000 years ago. Camellia sinensis (tea) leaves are minimally processed to remain delicately aromatic and naturally stimulating.

BLACK TEA 

Oxidizing tea gives a darker color, concentrates the caffeine and makes for a more robust flavor. Black tea with a splash of milk keeps Commonwealth nations running.
