Margaret's Hope 2021 First Flush Darjeeling Loose Tea
Out of stock
Picture the scene: as the first spring rains spread across the Himalayan foothills, the Darjeeling tea gardens start to turn green in a flush of colour. The earliest harvest of the year is referred to as the “First Flush” and is considered one of the finest teas to be produced worldwide.
This tea has been harvested and produced in the very early days of April when the temperatures are rising in this beautiful tea area and the leaves are beginning to shoot. What makes Darjeeling so outstanding is the fact that many of it’s teagardens are situated on high-altitude which is promoting the quality and flavour of the teas. Margaret’s hope has got tea bushes growing on an altitude up to 6.000 feet above sea level.
With a fresh, crisp aroma and a delicately floral flavour, it’s the perfect example of what makes First Flush Darjeeling the finest tea. Serve in a glass teapot so you can enjoy the tea’s glorious golden hue as the silver-tipped leaves unfurl…

Tea plantations were first introduced to India by the British in the 19th century, after Robert Fortune stole Chinese tea cuttings to plant in the Himalayan region of Darjeeling. Today Indian tea is some of the most famous in the world: it's also home to Assam tea, found growing wild there by the Scottish explorer Robert Bruce.
