The Tea Spot is now available in The Fresh Market with its line of premium organic and functional specialty teas for grocery and retail. The Tea Spot began the partnership with The Fresh Market earlier this year and is now in all 161 of the company’s grocery stores in 22 states across the United States. In addition, The Tea Spot expanded its operations by working with three UNFI distribution centers on the east coast to meet demand.

The Fresh Market, headquartered in Greensboro, N.C., is a fresh-focused specialty grocery chain, and The Tea Spot is a leading producer of handcrafted whole leaf teas and Steepware.

“The Tea Spot is thrilled to be available at The Fresh Market, while working with UNFI on a greater scale for distribution,” said Maria Uspenski, CEO of The Tea Spot and author of Cancer Hates Tea. “Through these new partnerships, a larger audience – especially on the east coast – will discover some of our top-selling tea blends while benefiting from healthier living through the everyday enjoyment of whole leaf tea.”

The partnership with The Fresh Market marks the first time The Tea Spot teas have been distributed in a major grocery or retail store based on the east coast. As a result, The Tea Spot now works with three more UNFI distribution centers, including Greenwood, Ind., York, Pa. and Richburg, S.C. The Tea Spot already distributed its teas through UNFI’s Aurora, Colo. facility. UNFI distributes more than 110,000 products to more than 43,000 customer locations including natural product superstores, independent retailers and conventional supermarket chains, among others.
