Appalachian Tea is the result of a dream, a few events, and a HUGE response from the community. We've been helped along the way by so many people, in ways both big and small.
Some of the doubters said that there was no place in Charleston for tea. With your help, we've shown them otherwise!
A new Charleston
Charleston, West Virginia is a small town for a capital city, but we're growing. In the last few years, we've seen a boom of coffee shops around the area as well as an influx of better dining restaurants. Which is great, but we had yet to get anywhere that focused on tea!
Appalachian Tea was made to address this. As someone who is born and bred in the state, I want us to have things people come for! I want locals to have as many options for places to go and things to do that the big cities have. Maybe this is just one small step, but it's what I can do and what I love.
Who am I?
My name is Sasha, and I'm a lifelong native of West Virginia and Charleston itself. I loved the Ferguson Tea Room in Hurricane and I've been mourning it since it closed.
After years of moping and thinking about how I could do it, maybe even better, I've decided to take the leap.
