Tiesta Tea moves to Elk Grove Village
Tiesta Tea, the loose leaf tea company, said Thursday it has moved into a new 23,000 square foot warehouse in Elk Grove Village.
This new space is 5 times the size of the previous Rosemont facility, and is a crucial expansion in order to satisfy demand from national customers including Target, Costco and Amazon, according to the company.
"Not only has this warehouse given us the chance to expand production and improve efficiency, but it's also allowed us to better serve our customers. With our new tea lab, we can experiment with trending ingredients customers are asking for, and we have the ability to pursue important certifications such as non-GMO," explains Director of Marketing Ashley Whitney.
Tiesta Tea's new facility features a state-of-the-art tea lab modeled after a top notch German facility used by generations of expert tea blenders. Since moving into the space, Tiesta Tea has already received non-GMO project certification for 22 products with the rest of their 45 blend lineup to follow within the next two months. This new addition to Elk Grove Village has also brought 20 new jobs to the community.
