I loved the kanchanjangha noir one of the best black teas I've had.
I love a good quality Darjeeling, but they have become so expensive. I've been looking for a great substitute and found Kanchanjangha Black. It's a great full bodied yet smooth tea choice at an affordable price. I highly recommend it and look forward to trying more of Nepal Tea's selections.
Kanchanjangha Noir is the best black tea my spouse and I have ever tasted. Very smooth, with a fresh (and maybe even subtly fruity -- I'm not good with the flavor descriptors!) flavor. Nepal Tea has obviously taken great care at every stage of the process, from growing to delivery. The service at the U.S. end is terrific. Great company and great tea all around.
This tea has a distinct and complex flavor. It brews to a pleasing golden brown color. It has an earthy flavor with a hint of flowery and citrus undertones. The leaves are smaller than some of the others offered by KTE, but it is still a good quality and since it is less expensive it can be an everyday tea. If you like Darjeeling teas, you would probably like this one.
Tried this black tea for the first time last spring and really enjoyed its its body and flavor. I don't use milk or sweetener and this tea doesn't need it. However, my husband thinks it's great with the honey and milk he adds!
