Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
My name is Aaron Barnes and I started Gramercy Tea with the mission to bring high quality tea to America. We are only online at this moment and we only serve loose leaf tea for the time being but we are hoping to expand that one-day. Thank you for coming to my page, I hope you come back often!
Gramercy Tea is one of those companies that strive for perfection in their teas and in their service. Their product line may seem simple but indeed it is the true essence of what tea is about, serving those that want to taste the purest form of tea to those that like to dress it up with a little bit of this and a little bit of that (herbal). Thank you Gramercy for allowing me to review your teas and tell the world about them.
