Last cup before i get a new tin. ordered last night because first, they going to make sachets only for this tea ( do not like them), Secondly, Mr. Wesley gave 25% off on this one( code saynotobags )
Steeped it according to JW parameters 185F 1tsp 8 oz 2.5 min
The brew is dark golden brown. its very bold and smooth, no astringency. Sweet but not overly, some roast but nicely done. its perfectly balanced and excellent to have a cup every morning.
resteep 3.5 min was excellent, sweeter, some nuts, slight pepper at the end of the sip.
i enjoyed it a lot.

I have a small sample of this one. I need to try this one tomorrow! Why the sachets?

I think he’s going to use the Number 3 for something else. I’m not sure what though

He said its for restaurants.

Joseph Wesley Black Tea

Yes. We put two teas into sacehts to easier accomodate cafes and restaurants who wanted to use our tea. Although #3 is being replaced, it is being replaced by a very similar tea but with much better construction. I was never happy with how broken the leaves were with last year’s #3. The new one is much more beautiful – albeit more subtle and gentle than last year’s #3.
