Business Overview

Our Story

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.
