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.
