The teacup smells quite nice; it’s dark and earthy, which is to be expected of a tea named ‘Ancient Forest’. It has a dark, grassy taste, with a nice full feeling. It smells almost exactly like it tastes, which is rare, and kind of amazing. Unfortunately, I don’t have any sugar right now to see if I can bring out anymore contrast in it. It keeps its flavor when it’s cold, and there are some new notes of flavor that come out when it’s cold.
Ancient Forest Oolong
This handsome tea is worthy of all our esteem and veneration because it comes to us exclusively from stands of protected ancient growth tea plants in the Yunnan province of China, all of which range in age from 500 to 2,700 years old. The most alluring aspect of this tea is the deeply penetrating flavor and aroma that it imparts, which is unlike any other black or green tea on the market. Bold, dark and inviting; this certified organic and fair trade tea is not to be missed.
