Kanchanjangha Noir is the premium black tea produced at Kanchanjangha Tea Estate (KTE). It is more oxidized than green, oolong and white tea and its unique processing technique just makes it the perfect invigorating morning drink for all.
Kanchanjangha Noir has a distinct brisk flavor with deep and vibrant reddish brown infusion. The high elevation of the tea bushes results in a fresh fruity/ flowery aroma with hints of caramel. The malty flavors and taste notes such as raisins and dark chocolate is prominent in all flushes of KTE black tea.
Kanchanjangha Noir is generally brewed at higher temperature than green tea. To brew the finest cup of black tea, use approximately two grams (the amount of a single tea bag) of tea per 8.5 fl. oz. (a standard US cup) of water of temperature 95℃ (206℉). In general, use not quite boiling water or let the water cool down for about 30 seconds after boiling. Steep for about 4 to 5 minutes to enjoy the brisk flavor of Kanchanjangha Noir.
*Full-leaf black tea is best served without added milk and/or sugar. However, it is common to add sugar and/or lemon according to one's preference.
