Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
We will only ever sell teas of the highest quality. We will never compromise on quality. It also means we sell only whole leaf tea from selected estates, which we supply either as loose leaf or in tea temples.
We love tea; we just don’t like the snobbery that can come with it. Instead we concentrate on bringing you the very best tea we can find and not taking ourselves too seriously.
We don’t want to intimidate you with a huge list of teas or bewilder you with a mass of information (although, of course, you can always ask us). We’ve handpicked a select range that offers you the chance to discover the wonderfully diverse world of tea.
Personally: I ran into Tea Pigs on social media and contacted them about their tea. They were more then happy to send me a few samples to share with all of you. The name is interesting and so are the teas, they are unique and full of natural no filler ingredients which this tea lover, loves. This company was born out of two people that loved tea and worked for a major tea company for a long time, learning along the way. Their website has a ton of information about tea, tasting and the whole tea process take some time to go through it and learn more about the tea you and I love.

COSTS: $2.50 – $24.00
Price varies according to how much you purchase.
Prior to brew: Very strong citrus scent.
Brewed: It’s a red tea that’s deep in hue.
Scent: Strong berry scent.
Flavor: Surprisingly not that bitter the berries are a real good blend.
Sentiments: From first sip to last it’s the same berry taste, with a very slight bitter undertone, the berries seem to take over, this tea reminds me of a Mock Cocktail Sangria just more healthy.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “6”.
Till next Tea….
