about us

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

Steeped by our desire to bring locally sourced brews 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 delicious, clean and healthful products, unique flavors and supporting our area's farms and businesses. In partnering with regional farmers and proprietors, Asheville Tea Company blends cleanly grown, sustainably harvested botanicals and small batch artisanal offerings to bring the flavors of Asheville into each of our handcrafted teas.

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

our blends

BLENDED BY HAND IN SMALL BATCHES, USING THE FINEST INGREDIENTS FROM LOCAL FARMS AND BUSINESSES

We love what we do. Our teas and tisanes are blended by hand in our certified kitchen in the foothills of Mount Mitchell State Park. All care is taken to maintain the flavors, aromas and fine qualities of our tea.


YAUPON

Yaupon is a type of holly and 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.

To brew, use boiling water and steep for about 5 minutes.

LEMON YAUPON

Yaupon with lemon peel, lemon balm and lemongrass

ELDERBERRY YAUPON

Yaupon with blackberry leaf, elderberry, hibiscus, roselle and rose hips & petals

 

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.

To brew, boil water and let the kettle rest a bit (160-180ºF is ideal) and steep for about 2-3 minutes.

G & TEA

Green tea with lime basil, rosemary, lime peel and juniper

 
 

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.

To brew, use boiling water and steep for about 2-3 minutes.

WILD EARL

Black tea with wild lavender bergamot flowers and bergamot essential oil

 
 

HERBAL TISANES

Blended with enormous care and showcasing Western North Carolina's finest array of unique flavors and beneficial herbs. Our tisanes are caffeine free, promote healthful wellbeing and are the perfect comfort when you really need a lasting relaxation session.

To brew, use boiling water (let the kettle rest a bit) and steep for 5-10 minutes.

CHAMOMILE & LAVENDER

Herbal tisane with chamomile, lavender, anise hyssop and tulsi

ECHINACEA & ELDERFLOWER

Herbal tisane with oatstraw, echinacea flower and leaf, elderflower and spearmint

MOUNTAIN MINT
