We Love Local

When founder Allison DeVane dreamed of opening her own storefront, she knew she wanted to share the love with other local companies committed to delicious, high-quality products. As you browse the selection at our new Old Town location, you'll notice many of the products and decorations come right from our backyard! Next time you’re in for your favorite latte or macchiato, make sure you try something special from these local rockstars:

Ruze pastries 
Our partners in palate pleasing, Růže creates the perfect treats to pair with any of our tasTEA delights. This mother/daughter collaboration specializes in small-batch, high-quality cakes and treats that you can now walk right in and grab from our counter! Pro tip: the cinnamon roll is decadent and pairs fantastically with our Ruze Latte.
 Standard Wax candles 
The entire collection smells fantastic, but if you come into our shop you can purchase the exclusive Charles Grey candle. This unique collaboration is made with tea oil, so it even burns with a green glow! Even better: the ceramic vessel in which the candle is contained is handmade and easily repurposed as your new favorite mug once your candle has burned its last.
Flora Soap
We are super pumped to feature our exclusive collaboration with this all-natural, non-toxic, vegan bath and skin care product company. Our London Fog Shea Butter Soap is a fabulous exfoliant made with our Charles Grey blend. You can also pick up a tub of their beauTEA balm: a rich moisturizer for skin, lips, and face.
Danzeisen Dairy milk
This local, family run dairy offers glass bottles to local Phoenix merchants – just like mama liked it! This rich and creamy milk is produced right here in Phoenix without any growth hormones, so you know your next latte will not only taste good, but will make you feel great, too. Bonus: these glass bottles are 100% recyclable!
Conscious Dining almond milk 
This rad company was founded with the goal of leading others to a lifestyle of health and happiness. We brought them onboard for their delicious almond milk, which we personally believe tastes best in our Salted Caramel Cape. Try almond milk in your drink next time you stop in; we promise you’ll love it!
Camelback Flower Shop
Offering same-day flower delivery in Phoenix, we loving shopping this local florist for our beautiful centerpieces. Their fresh, local selection is made brighter during their daily happy hour (you can get fresh flowers for half off)!
The Bosque
These brilliant botanists are focused on sustainability, innovation, and providing the most beautiful desert plants for our hanging pots and countertops! From whimsical vines to hearty succulents, we always find something to love when we shop their selection.

From the second you step foot into Teaspressa, you are taken by the radiant decor and naturalist/positive vibe. That being said, my experience at Teaspressa was amazing. Their exceptional and gracious staff make you feel right at home and assist you in choosing the right drink for your individual taste buds. What I did not realize at the time, was how all the different recipes and combinations would fascinate me so much. Teaspressa truly is embarking on the mission to innovate the tea industry and I’m looking forward to following this journey along the way.
