It’s unfortunate that the tea industry is still stuck in the language of blends and adjuncts. June 26 2013

It was not that long ago that tea sellers started “blending" teas with dehydrated and dried ingredients to keep their costs down (tea is much more expensive than dried fruits, herbs and spices) and to disguise any off flavors of their teas.  One of our missions at Joseph Wesley Black Tea is to help tea drinkers wean themselves from the seduction of blended tea concoctions and to help them discover how to use a high-quality tea base with fresh and seasonal ingredients.  We’re currently working on the photo shoots for this project and I’m really excited with how the imagery is developing.
