Asheville Tea Company
Founder & CEO
Jessie Dean, Founder & CEO of Asheville Tea Company, is a Certified Tea Specialist through the World Tea Academy. She has a background in business management as a Program Director and Senior Director of Operations and Development in the health and wellness and outdoor education space prior to entering the world of tea. Inspired by a passion for wellness, tea, herbs and the outdoors, Jessie founded Asheville Tea Company in 2016 with a mission to source as many ingredients as possible from regional farmers using regenerative growing practices in the Southeastern US. And thus, create “Farm to Teacup” craft teas for a taste of the mountains. 
Asheville Tea Company works with more than twelve growers in the U.S. for about 80% of our blend ingredients. Our primary goals are to create fresh flavor with real, seasonal botanicals grown as close to home as possible, and to have a positive impact on our community and natural environment. And we love that this allows us and our customers to be a part of the process from seed to sip! Asheville Tea Company was a Finalist for the World Tea Expo Best Tea Startup in 2020 and has been featured in Fresh Cup Magazine (Farm to Table Tea), Bloomberg (Want to Try the Most Exciting Food in America? Leave NYC’.)World Tea NewsTea & Coffee Trade Journal and USA Today.
