The American Specialty Tea Alliance is a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association. We are highly involved, active and tangibly accessible to our membership. Our member base is made up of specialty tea business owners, tea professionals, and tea consultants. Very simply, we want you to become a part of our community today and together, we can build this future. Tea consumption in the United States continues to rise, yet growth within our sector for quality jobs, as well as opportunity to utilize tea specialists, is stalling. Without meaningful resources, small businesses are at risk of becoming unsupported islands. Our industry, now more than ever, needs collaboration and transparency to bring current and incoming generations into a supportive, forward-thinking era.
