Also known as Burmese Teak or Genuine Teak, it has a golden to medium brown color and ages to a silvery brown. Teak is remarkably resistant to rot and decay. Old-growth teak is considered by some to perform better than plantation Teak, however, there are ethical concerns surrounding its harvest. Its grain is straight, though it can occasionally be wavy or interlocked. Coarse, uneven texture, and moderate to low natural luster.
