MARGARET'S HOPE FTGFOP 1, 1ST FLUSH 2013,DARJEELING

There are many stories about Margaret’s Hope tea estate, not necessarily in agreement with each other. A popular rendering tells us that in the 1930s the garden was owned by Mr. Bagdon, who sailed from England to India with his two daughters to visit the garden. The younger daughter, Margaret, fell in love with the estate and hoped some day she could return. But during their return trip, Margaret fell ill and died. In her memory, her father changed the garden's name to Margaret's Hope. Some versions of the story claim that her ghost still wanders the garden. Yet another telling suggests that Margaret was the estate owner’s wife and he simply named the estate after her.

 

Description:

Darjeeling is known as the 'champagne' of tea. This tea is picked in April in the first plucking or 'flush'. It is light in flavour and aroma with a slight astringency and undertones of muscatel, the sweet white grape taste which identifies a quality Darjeeling. Margaret's Hope tea Estate in the heart of Darjeeling is one of the few gardens that regularly produce the elusive muscatel character.
