Margarets Hope Tea Darjeeling Various Options


Margaret's Hope 2nd Flush Darjeeling

Darjeelings are often referred to as the champagne of tea. On the foothills of the Himalayas 
 among wildflowers, one of the most sought-after teas in the world is produced, having a rich balanced fruity body, and a lovely bright cup
it's a delight from this famous estate renowned for consistent highest quality.
The bushes at Margaret’s hope are almost exclusively the Chinese Jat and tends the tippy green appearance and fragrance of the leaf, growing at high
altitudes with cooler weather conditions produce a smaller but better quality harvest with a complex bouquet some would describe as nutty.
The best time of year is for a developed flavour is during "second flush” (end of May-end of June) in this period Darjeelings are incomparable to any other tea in the world.
Established in 1859 and originally called Bara-Ringtong after the two rivers that flow through the estate. By the 1930’s the garden was owned by Mr Bagdon

who visited regularly from London, he had two daughters the younger was called Margaret, upon visiting the garden with her father for the first time, she fell in love with 

its enchanting charm saying to her father she "hoped one day to return and make it her home."
Unfortunately, she fell ill on board ship on the journey back to England and died soon afterwards, in her memory her father renamed the estate.

Quality tea

Very pleased with this estate grown tea, much nicer than most of the Darjeeling tea I've bought from other retailers. It's on a par with some I bought from a well known departmental store in Knightsbridge which in fairness was also excellent but more expensive.
Recommended for quality and price.

An Absolute delight

I am relatively new to special loose leaf tea, and have tried a number over the past few months.
I have to say this is by far the best and equates to what I have read about Darjeeling being "the Champagne" of tea.
It is not overpowering, and has a delightful refreshing quality, which I have not found in any other teas I have tried.
I would highly recommend this, and will be looking to buy much more, as this fully reaches all my expectations and what I am wanting in a tea.
The service I received was excellent and I would highly recommend this seller.
I look forward to many more equally satisfying orders.

Excellent as always

My recent order was dealt with quickly and competently as is always the case with this retailer.

Margarets Hope Darjeeling Tea

Having tried other suppliers' Darjeeling and were disappointed we were delighted to discover Tea Cakes of Yorkshire's product. Margaret Hope's Darjeeling is just how a Darjeeling should be with a delicate and refreshing flavour. The service provided by Tea Cakes is first class and this time our order was sent with a surprise present of a tea caddy. Many thanks.

Delicate but fantastic

We initial relied this blend as a 10g taster, wetc decided to try it as our other blends were running low and we're surprised by the taste.
Compared to our regular blend the Nonsuch single estate, this has a much more subtle and delicate flavour. It doesnt suffer from becoming too bitter after been left for a longer brew and is incredibly refreshing. It is perfect drink for special occasions.
Service from Teacakes is top notch, they routinely surprise us with little extras in our orders.
