Nelson’s offers a lot of interesting blends. How do you come up with these?

Thank you for the compliment.  We get inspiration from our clients, our palettes, other player’s in the industry, and some of our favorite beverages and plates!  We do a lot of tinkering to come up with right balance for our blends and to bring forward the right flavors at the right times in the right amounts.

From where do you source your teas and other ingredients?

We work with 3 primary companies in the western United States to source our base teas, herbs, spices, barks, roots, and flowers.   Most of our flavoring comes from a company on the east coast.  We are starting to pursue relationships with larger suppliers and direct farm connections as we grow.

Which Nelson’s tea is your favorite? Which is the most popular?

That changes daily.  The tea I crave is based off of the time of day, my mood, and what I’m looking to achieve.  At the moment, I am fancying our new Choco-Orange Rooibos blend.  I keep coming back to it.  It reminds me of the chocolate oranges you whack on the able and they fall apart in sections.  Delicious and virtually no calories! 

Thanks Alex! Find out more and see the amazing collection at
