The water pressure depends on the residual air pressure in the tank. Normally it should be between 30 -50-psi.

What causes pressure in an artesian well?

Water trapped in a confined aquifer raises water above the level of the well. The artesian well allows a place for the water to exit the aquifer. So gravity is the real cause of the pressure.

How does water come through your tap?

Water is forced through the tap by water pressure from the municipal system (which runs at a much higher pressure) or by the air pressure in your home water tank if you are on a well.
