  • Full Description

    This tea has been harvested and produced in late March 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 tea gardens are situated at high-altitude which is promoting the quality and flavour of the teas. Margaret’s Hope has tea bushes growing at an altitude up to 6,000 feet above sea level.

    With a fresh, crisp aroma and a delicately fruity 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…

NUMEROLOGY

We've given our Margaret's Hope First Flush Darjeeling the number 865, to mark the founding date of the world-famous estate in 1865. 

INDIA

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.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
