Ancient Forest Black

Cultivated from the ancient protected tea tree forests of Yunnan Province, China, this rare and exquisite black tea makes a full-bodied and earthy infusion with a rich and penetrating aroma heavy with age and collective wisdom. The flavor of this deep amber infusion is unlike any other black tea available. Truly exceptional.

Story, Folklore, History...

The Ancient Forest:The ancient protected tea tree forests of Yunan Province range from 500 to over 3000 years old. In fact, the oldest human-planted tea tree in the world grows in the Jinxiu Village in Yunnan Province, and is 3200 years old. With a diameter of 1.84 meters, the tree is also the biggest tea tree in the world, growing at an altitude of 3,245 meters.

This tea met all of my expectations and I will be ordering it again.  In addition to the wonderful flavour, there is something very sustaining about drinking a tea that literally has ancient roots.

This tea lives up to its ancient history admirably. Penetrating, woodsy, and earthy, with a hint of oriental spice, making this taste like mystery in a cup.

This tea reminds me of the traditional orange pekoe I grew up on. It can be strong if left to steep for those who love a strong tea. Tastes great.

I tend to go more for green teas, but when I want a black tea, this one fits the bill.
