About Asha: Asha Tea House is a Bay Area food startup with a mission to get everyone excited about tea by serving responsibly-sourced artisan whole leaf teas and globally-inspired hand-crafted tea beverages in a welcoming space. We’ve been serving darn good tea to the Berkeley community since 2012, and opened our 2nd location in downtown San Francisco in October 2015.
What We Are Looking For: We are looking for conscientious, enthusiastic and reliable individuals to join our Berkeley and/or San Francisco teams. Prior experience as a barista or other cafe/restaurant/customer service position is preferred, but not required. We welcome part-timers, and request a minimum of 1 year of service with Asha. Our team consists of passionate and hard-working individuals that are dedicated to building a culture of genuine friendship, open communication and continuous learning.

Please answer the following questions in your cover letter:
There is a cup of tea out there for everyone, whether it's a simple cup of straight tea, or a crafted glass of flavored tea. At Asha, we strive to feed (or cultivate) this love for tea by serving you high-quality tea drinks made with fresh, pure and real ingredients.
But we also know that drinking tea isn't just about the drink--it's also about where you drink it and who you drink it with. Which is why we designed every element of our Berkeley tea house, from the open communal table and cozy booth seating to the loyalty program and friendly customer service, to maximize your tea-drinking enjoyment.
"Asha", after all, is Taiwanese for "someone that enjoys life", and our hope is that drinking Asha Tea will remind you of the things you enjoy about life.
