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.

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.
