From Juniper Trading

From the vendor’s website:

This very special organic black tea comes from protected ancient growth tea plants in the Yunnan province of China. The age of these trees range from 500 to 2,700 years old. Ancient Forest has a very deep flavor, and alluring aroma, really setting this tea apart from other black teas on the market. Rich, bold, and inviting; this tea is partially fermented which will appeal to black and green tea lovers alike.

Organic, fair trade, contains caffeine.

Since Art of Tea no longer sells their Ancient Forest tea (one of my old favorites), I went looking for something similar. While doing a search on “Ancient Forest Tea”, I came across this one, offered for sale by Juniper Trading, so I thought I’d try it.

I am glad to say that it is, in fact, very similar to the tea previously sold by Art of Tea. Based on the description on the website, it seems that this is a black tea from Yunnan. Since that is the same province where pu-erh teas come from, I am guessing that it is a blend of both straight black and pu-erh teas, since this tea has a slight pu-erh-like flavor to it but it isn’t overpowering. The earthy and wet wood flavors just add enough flavor to make it appealing.

All in all, I am glad I found this and have added it to my cupboard as a staple for times when I am in the mood for an earthy tea, but don’t want to be beaten down with the full-throttle earthiness of a straight pu-erh tea. I’ll happily enjoy this tea regularly.
