Ancient Forest Yunnan
Rich taste with notes of cedar and honey
Country of Origin
I was prepared for the worst but this first loose tea purchase was a winner. I found a quick 5 minutes steep the best for my taste but longer doesn't degrade the quality as the product is superior. A bit worried about it made in China but the quality has been consistent. No problems. AF tea is wondrous poured over ice that pops those black tea taste tones.
This black tea is smooth and very pleasant. I enjoy the flavors of this tea as I start my day.
This is an excellent tea, with a very smooth flavor and great aroma. The tea is very good with or without added milk; the silky quality of the tea is more noticeable without milk. A great morning to early afternoon tea.
I love this as my go to black tea for my large morning cup. What I love about it is that it is flavorful by itself without the need for additions. I’m also always so worried with typical English Breakfast teas because they can get pretty tart and oversteeped, in my opinion, very quickly. I feel the Ancient Forest is much more forgiving, giving you some flexibility with steep time and intensity.
I generally don't add any sweetener or milk to my tea. This tea has a deep, rich flavor without any hint bitterness. It has a very faint sweetness at the end and would probably be wonderful with a little splash of cream.
