Asheville Tea Company celebrates first year with release of new holiday blends

Sunday, December 17th 2017 @ 10:57 AM

Buying local and supporting local is a special part of Asheville’s thriving economy, community and culture.
A culture that over the last year has helped Asheville Tea Company grow from an idea to a business fully steeped in the community. 
“I believe that the support of a locally-sourced and locally-made product adds so much value to our community, to the environment, to our health and to the story behind the gift,” said Jessie Dean, Asheville Tea Company owner. “This month marks the end of our first full year in business and we couldn't have done it without the strong support of our community and our collective values for supporting local business.”
To celebrate their first full year, Asheville Tea Company has released two special holiday tea blends -  Winter Wonderland and Nutcracker Blend – both feature wildcrafted and locally harvested ingredients from Asheville area farms. 
“Our special holiday tea blends have allowed us to experiment with even more that our area has to offer,” Dean said. “This is the most fun part of being a tea blender in Asheville - the ability to collaborate with our strong farm-to-table community to find the most unique and fresh ingredients. We can create tea blends that you can't find anywhere else. You really take home a little piece of Asheville.”  
The holiday teas use sustainably wildcrafted botanicals like Fraser fir, wintergreen, and birchbark, as well as locally grown shagbark hickory nuts.  
Winter Wonderland features a fragrant blend of organic white tea with locally grown wintergreen, Frasier Fir, peppermint, birch bark and yarrow flower.  Nutcracker Blend features a bold organic black tea with cinnamon, locally-sourced shagbark hickory nuts and vanilla bean. 
Asheville Tea Company’s holiday teas are available online at, at select retailers throughout Asheville and local markets. Visit the website for up-to-date events, markets and shops.

About Asheville Tea Company 

Asheville Tea Company blends teas and locally-sourced, seasonal botanicals so you can enjoy a lovely cup of tea morning, noon and night. Steeped by our desire to bring “everyday tea culture” to Western North Carolina, founder Jessie Dean began her vision for Asheville Tea Company in late 2015. As a West Asheville mom and outdoor enthusiast, Jessie was on a mission to combine her love of a good cuppa with her passion for the local, unique ingredients of her home community of Asheville, NC. By 2016, her first line of “craft teas” were ready to serve. In partnering with local farmers and proprietors, Asheville Tea Company blends organic herbs, botanicals and small batch artisanal offerings to bring the flavors of Asheville into each of our handcrafted teas.
