When Asha Tea House opened in July 2012, we had a very simple mission: Get everyone excited about tea. We didn't know exactly how we would make that happen, but we knew that serving darn good tea was a good start.
What people love about Asha and what makes us different isn't what we offer--Teavana has sold fruity teas since 1997, Starbucks has been serving a Green Tea Latte for years, Hong Kong has enjoyed its namesake Milk Tea and Coffee Milk Tea for ages, and loose leaf tea has been consumed and traded across the world since the beginning of modern civilization.
For Asha, it's all about how we source our ingredients, how we make our drinks and how we show what quality and honesty means to us. We travel extensively to source teas directly from growers and make almost everything from scratch so that we know exactly what we're serving, we purposely limit our drink and tea selections to showcase a small but comprehensive representation of what the tea world has to offer, and we make a big effort to share everything we're learning as we help build America's tea culture. Where you enjoy our drinks also means a lot to us, which is why a lot of thought went into and continues to go into the interior design of our tea house*.
If that isn't enough to convince you that Asha's different from every other tea company out there, read more below:
But don't just take our word for it. Come by, try our teas, and let us know what you think!
