The Tea Communi-TEA
The Tea Association
The Cozy Tea Cart is a proud member of the American Specialty Tea Institute. In business, industries need associations to protect their best interests and to create an environment conductive to growth. Associations serve as a scaffold to build the overall economic success of an industry, to develop positive marketing and media impressions and to defend against harmful allegations that can damage the vitality of an industry. The tea industry looks to The Tea Association of the USA, Inc., The Tea Council of the USA, and the Specialty Tea Institute (STI) for its wholesale and retail needs.
