When the Talbott Teas duo first started, they already had a great product and a lot of success. Profit margins had increased from $100,000 to more than $500,000 in just three years.

A partnership with investor Kevin O’Leary was formed after Nakisher and Talbott provided the business details, and Talbott focused on the creative aspects of the business.

February of that year, Talbott Teas made its debut. Daymond John and Barbara Corcoran were brought back into the deal by Kevin O’Leary after the show.
