Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
We started our operation as a husband and wife seeking a healthier lifestyle through a fun and healthy hobby. When friends and businesses developed an interest in our operation, we decided to take it to the next level. In our adventure, we have overcome many obstacles in sourcing, blending, labeling, and packaging. Because of our trials and errors, we have learned how to do it right! As a result, we are able to offer businesses concierge service by providing high quality, custom blended teas with the ability to label and package for you! This allows one to be able to establish a brand without the headache of all that goes into the customization of doing so. It is also a great company gift option. Tea is unique, customizable, light weight, easy to ship and fun drink! Did we mention that it also provides a natural energy boost with a calming effect?
First off this company has to love me ((((Hugs)))) sending me a few samples of different Earl Greys which happens to be my most favorite tea to review. I contacted Nelson Tea to see about reviewing their teas and they were happy to agree. Make sure you visit their site there is a lot of interesting teas going on there and information about the teas they provide.

** As always stated by My Tea Vault, we think you should enjoy tea the way you like it, I like mine very strong with no sweetener, these are just guidelines and I suggest you use the guideline then adjust for your own tastes.

COSTS: Not listed on their website at this time
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Brewed: Medium liquor (we expect that with our Earl Greys).
Scent: I am sure with any Earl Grey that is mixed properly the Earl Grey scent is going to stand out and stand strong, as this one did.
Flavor: I’m not tasting a lot of raspberry here (I love raspberries) but the familiar taste of the Earl Grey / Bergamot is there, it’s still a very good tea and the raspberry presence makes it just a tad different then a usual Earl Grey.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “6”.
