Darjeeling 2nd Flush SFTGFOP1 'Margaret's Hope'
An exceptional, nutty, mellow flavoured Darjeeling with a quince-like fragrance. It has a luscious, smooth, sweet taste with all the subtlety and lightness of a truly great second flush. The dried leaf smells like autumn giving way to fruitiness when brewed. The leaf is large, donkey brown and twisted yielding a beautiful amber coloured liquor. Margaret’s Hope produces consistent, superb Darjeelings and we suggest grabbing this tea if you want to experience a really special Darjeeling.
