Darjeeling FTGFOP 2nd Flush ‘Margaret’s Hope’ black tea is a highly prized 2nd flush Darjeeling picked in May and June. Darjeeling is always and quite justifiably referred to as the ‘champagne of teas’. This estate is located in southern Darjeeling with spectacular views of the Himalayas it is about 2000m high and here the Chinese type Thea Sinensis tea bushes grow relatively slowly in the cool climate and deep mists of the mountains. How did this estate get its intriguing name? In the 1930’s the estate owner Mr Bagdon visited with his daughter Margaret who was enchanted by the tea garden. On returning to England she told her father that she hoped to return, but unfortunately she became ill and died. In her memory, her father changed the name of the estate to Margaret’s Hope.

Tasting Notes

Darjeeling FTGFOP Margaret’s Hope gives a sparkling clear golden amber coloured infusion with a classic muscatel flavour and has a superb fragrance with a complex bouquet and characteristics. Drink with or without a dash of milk and sugar suitable throughout the day, but especially good for afternoon tea.
