We identify the algorithm for constructing steady states of the $n$-species totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP) on $L$ site periodic chain by Ferrari and Martin with a composition of combinatorial $R$ for the quantum affine algebra $U_q(\widehat{sl}_L)$ in crystal base theory. Based on this connection and the factorized form of the $R$ matrix derived recently from the tetrahedron equation, we establish a new matrix product formula for the steady state of the TASEP which is
