Just another beautiful and delicious tea from Joseph Wesley Tea. To start you should be impressed by how striking these light brown hand-crafted twisted tea leaves are. They look like tiny bits of dried rope all tangled up together. …And then you taste the tea. It has a wonderful subtle sweetness with a soothing toasted, nutty flavor. With hints of chocolate, this tea reminds me of dark chocolate covered almonds. With such a comforting flavor, it is so easy to drink, either paired with food or by itself.

This tea is clearly very high quality and will appeal to any tea drinker.  It has complexity and depth of flavor, at yet the same time it is very simple and approachable. I highly recommend it, along with any of the other Joseph Wesley Teas (o3, 04, and 07) we have sampled.

Oops, I didn’t yet get a chance to review this tea. I will add my comments soon but wanted to publish Abby’s lovely review in the meantime!
