Ancient Forest Blend
Our Ancient Forest blend is our richest earth blend - with an abundant amount of hojicha tea from Japan, this blend is as aromatic as it is rich in antioxidants.
Hojicha Tea for Drinking
Our Ancient Forest Kit comes with Hojicha Tea (enough for an entire pot). Please note that we do not provide a strainer or tea bag - it's designed to be steeped over and over again.
Our kit comes comes with three unscented naked votive candles.
Hand Rolled Incense Sticks
The kit experience includes a box of incense sticks for the post-bath experience. The incense sticks are made from the finest aromatic herbs, natural resins, rare woods, flowers of exquisite fragrance, aroma oils, and exotic spices.
Custom Relaxation Playlist
Our curated relaxation playlist for our Ancient Forest Bathhouse features a nature-based relaxation sensory experience.
Optional: Tea Chocolate
If you're interested in pairing our Ancient Forest Bathhouse with a tea chocolate, we recommend the Duck Shit Dancong Tea Chocolate.
Hojicha, a roasted green tea, contains a high level of antioxidants, which defend the skin against the free radicals, protect the skin from pollution and other factors. As a tea, it can ease symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety.
As a rich source of vitamin C and behenic acid, Moringa is a powerful herb used in skincare for its anti-aging properties. Studies have shown that Moringa has the potential to boost collagen, help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Centella offers potent antioxidants and amino acids that soothe upset and compromised skin, reduce redness, and improve hydration. In Chinese medicine, centella is known to clear inflammatory and infectious conditions.
With an anti-bacterial property, spearmint does a magic job on skin cleansing. This ingredient also imparts a cooling sensation which helps relieve itching associated with dryness and skin irritations.
Jasmine helps restore skin lustre and balance moisture to naturally reduce dryness without clogging pores. Research suggests the aroma of jasmine has a relaxing effect by decreasing the autonomic nerve activity and heart rate.
Cinnamon is rich in plant compounds known as polyphenols, such as cinnamic acid, cinnamaldehyde, and various flavonoids. As a natural astringent, cinnamon bark helps to cleanse the skin.
Oats moisturize, restore the skin barrier, reduce itching, and regulate inflammation, which all can help in the recovery of the eczematous skin. In addition, oats act as a natural cleanser and exfoliator by removing dead skin cells to reveal brighter complexions.

Real Experiences Shared by Real People
"Grounding, calming, and overall INCREDIBLE"
"You can tell that everything about this blend is so carefully thought out, and it comes together to make such an amazing experience. The smell was so earthy and grounding, and I felt probably the most relaxed I’ve felt in weeks. The incense is a nice touch that can also be enjoyed beyond the bath experience! I steeped the tea at 175 degrees and it was perfect, not bitter at all, and the perfect complement to the experience."

Absolutely outstanding. It smelled so delicate, but it filled the whole upstairs with the fragrance. It didn't bother my allergies or my sensitive skin, and I got three good steeps (progressively weaker, of course) out of the giant tea bag. It does leave a tea-colored ring, but it was easy to wipe off with a cellulose sponge, and it wasn't like it was a shock - it's tea, after all. It didn't detract from the experience. I will absolutely be purchasing this again.Inoki Bathhouse7 months ago
Thank you SO MUCH for this kind review, Shannon 😭💚🙇🏻♀️. I love that you got three good steeps in. Thank you for calling out the pros/cons of bathing in tea (the tea-colored ring) and your solution. I appreciate you so much. Thank you, again.

I loved the ancient rain forest bath tea so much. It opened up my senses and I definitely felt very relaxed afterward. I love the idea of a bath tea so much, this would make such a wonderful gift to someone, to promote self care.Inoki Bathhouse8 months ago

The blend smells very earthy and woodsy when you first open the package which can be a bit disconcerting or off-putting at first, but adding it to the hot bath brings out the scent of the hojicha tea, cinnamon, and mint notes which elevate the experience into something otherworldly. Truly lives up to the name of Ancient Forest.
I will add that this is a very dark bath tea which is likely to stain/leave some residue on the bathtub, so make sure to clean up afterwardsInoki Bathhouse8 months ago
Thank you so much for the feedback, Phebe 💚 So grateful for your take on this experience and so glad it lives up to the name. When I shut my eyes, I imagine myself in a dark, woody forest covered in aged trees and bright green moss.
Also super grateful for you calling out this advice. Completely agreed - this bath is definitely a dark one but soap and water always do the trick.
