Headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, The Stash Tea Company is a privately-held company that’s been operating since 1972. Stash Tea first worked out of an old Portland Victorian style house and supplied loose herbal teas and bulk herbs to natural food stores in the Portland area. Then in 1975, the company broadened its focus to include bagged teas and started to sell a full line of traditional, specialty blend and herbal teas directly to fine restaurants and through a mail-order catalog to consumers. Today, Stash Tea is one of the largest specialty tea companies in the United States, with products available through food service, grocery stores, tea and coffee shops, club stores, mass merchandisers, natural foods stores, mail order and the Internet. The company derives its name from an entertaining aspect of tea folklore. In earlier centuries, tea was a valuable commodity traditionally transported by clipper ship. The ship’s captain often was presented with some of the finest teas for his personal use. This supply was his “stash,” stowed carefully as his “private reserve.” Today, the term is still used to denote anything put away carefully because of its preciousness. The company believes in using top-quality products with 100% natural ingredients; those products include bag teas and loose leaf in flavors like pumpkin spice, Meyer lemon, breakfast in Paris, vanilla nut crème, merrymint, Earl Grey, and hundreds more.
