Steep Mountain Tea Company to Open Friday at the Greensburg Train Station

A new business, Steep Mountain Tea Company is opening in downtown Greensburg and will be hosting their grand opening on Friday, July 22 at 4pm.

Steep Mountain Tea Company located in one of the spaces at the Greensburg Train Station is a tea house specializing in loose leaf tea from around the world. At Steep Mountain you can sit and sip or take your tea to go. They will also be offering baked goods from local bakers, a selection of coffee and other drinks as well as hand dipped ice cream. In the small gift area they will have apparel, tea accessories, vintage collectibles and other items.

Started by Judy Weakland and her son Marcus Weakland, they wanted to start it because they love tea! From the flavors and health benefits tea provides they wanted to bring that to Greensburg.

“We also love creating our own businesses and have close ties to the community,” said owner Judy Weakland. “There is nothing like our shop in the area so we felt Greensburg would be an embracing community to start our adventure!”

Judy and her husband Mark own Astra Physical Therapy an independent out patient physical therapy clinic and have been self employed for over 30’years. Marcus is an MBA graduate of Seton Hill University in Entrepreneurship and now has the opportunity to apply his degree with owning this new business.

The Weakland family started looking for space in September of 2021 and saw the available spot at the Greensburg Train Station. The space, which previously housed the Greensburg Community Development Corporation has been completely transformed from an office to a beautiful, trendy and cozy place to sip tea, meet up with friends and event sit for a while to get some work done.

“We wanted everyone to feel comfortable here,” said Weakland. “We tried to pay attention to every detail in design to transform this space to make our customers feel welcome.”

There’s a good amount of seating on the first level with a cozy lounge area in the upper loft. When the weather is good, patrons will be able to sit outside at the multiple tables and chairs available.

The Steep Mountain Tea Company, located at 101 Ehalt Street, Suite 111 in downtown Greensburg, will host their Grand Opening Friday, July 22 at 4pm. Following that, their hours will be 7:30am to 7pm daily. Parking for Steep Mountain is located in the George T. Kearns Lot on the corner of Harrison Ave and Ehalt Street.
