Darjeeling is known as the "Champagne of Teas" and this sampling from the Margaret's Hope Estate is a shining example of the complexities of this all too famous tea. Rich black tea flavor and that all famous Darjeeling astringency make this a favorite.
Margaret's Hope is named after the tea gardens daughter who was in love with the plantation but died tragically. The owner dedicated the plantation to his daughters memory. Though the story is sad, the flavor is lively and bright a true testament to Margaret's love of the estate. |This is a 2nd flush tea with mild flowery flavor. A high quality Darjeeling.
