When we opened our first store in 2005 (formerly Old Spice Traders), we never dreamed our little store in St. Augustine, FL would become a nation-wide franchise. We've dedicated ourselves to our mission, "Creating & sharing the experience of a more flavorful life,"
With the help of our executive team, managing partners, and dedicated corporate team members, The Spice & Tea Exchange® (TSTE®) has been franchising since 2008, and has celebrated 55+ store openings in 26 states, in just a few years!
With a wide selection of seasonings for any food lover and dozens of choices for any tea enthusiast, it's easy to Find Your Way To Flavor!® within a TSTE® store. The Spice & Tea Exchange® offers more than 140 spices, over 80 exclusive hand-mixed blends, 16 naturally-flavored sugars, an array of salts from around the world, and more than 30 exotic teas. We focus on providing high quality products and accessories to home cooks, chefs, and tea lovers in an old-world spice traders' atmosphere.
