Review of Tea: DarjeelingMargarets Hope Summer delight Dj 212 2nd flush 2013

Margarets Hope Darjeeling Tea Estate: Margarets Hope is a world famous name when it comes to Darjeeling Tea. Earlier known as Bara Ringtong, it was started in 1830 as a small plantation and became commercially viable in 1864 with this variety of plants from China. The current Margarets Hope Tea factory was set up in the year 1930 by Mr. John Taylor with Mr. Longsin’s help (a Chinese businessman)

The unusual name ‘Margaret’s Hope’ was given to the garden in 1927 by the then owner Mr. Cruikshank. His daughter, Margaret, enchanted by the beauty of this garden was deeply attached to the place. Before leaving for England, she promised to return but unfortunately died of a lethal tropical disease on board the ship, never to return. Thus in her memory, her father changed the name to Margaret’s Hope.


Description : An exceptional variety Darjeeling tea plucked from the young and pure AV2 clonal bushes of the "Edenvale" section of this beautiful and famous plantation of Darjeeling.

The dry leafs are wiry in appearance and come in colours of gold ,olive and reddish brown and has a lot of bold silver and gold unbroken tips. The dry leaf gives out extremely delicious flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate and roses.

When steeped for complete 4 minutes the cup releases bright golden liquor. Each Sip reminds of crisp white wine. There is the dryness to the tongue, the slight hints of different fruity flavours that you coax can tease until they fade or morph into something else entirely.

Steeping Instructions:

1-2 teaspoons of tea per 0.3l of boiled water, steep for 4 - 5 minutes.

An exceptional and a rare tea of the 2nd flush 2013 Darjeeling tea harvest which should not be missed by a true tea lover!
