Awaken your senses with this rare tea, rich in flavor and history, from ancient tea trees growing deep in the forests of Southeast Asia. Generations of local people have climbed these wild tea trees to pluck their leaves. Now you can enjoy this refreshing cup that’s smooth, yet hearty. Drink in its enduring energy.
Robust! This tea has got real spirit to it – and the strength to enliven even the sleepiest of sleepy-heads!
The aroma is inviting. It has a warm, wake-up kind of smell to it – if that makes sense! Almost a baked kind of fragrance that translates into the flavor. It’s the kind of scent you WANT to wake up to!
The flavor is equally as warm and inviting. As I said in the previous paragraph, there is a bake-y kind of flavor to it that rests in the background and beckons my palate to keep sipping so that it can savor that delicious flavor. It is a bold tea – very strong – with a nice malty flavor to it. It reminds me very much of an Assam! But there is also an intriguing, fruity wine-like note in the distance that is reminiscent of a Keemun tea too.
It is a tasty tea that offers a very pleasant wake-up call!
Wild Forest Black tea is also one of five new teas from Choice Organic Teas that have been created to help support the Jane Goodall Institute. Hmm… great tea and a good cause … I like it when a tea can accomplish so much!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
