MARGARETS HOPE AUTUMN GLORY. (AUTUMN FLUSH 2012; BLACK TEA)
MARGARETS HOPE AUTUMN GLORY has been made from SPECIAL CHINA BUSHES from high elevation plantations. Margarets Hope is famous for its high quality SECOND FLUSH MUSCATEL & ITS AUTUMNAL TEAS and this tea proves it.
This tea is a fine example of DARJEELING AUTUMN FLUSH, sweet, (which is rare for an AUTUMNAL FLUSH) crisp and ends with a muscatel nose. We would categorize this tea as low-to-medium amount of astringency. It has a lovely flavour, more of a fruity note with hints of flower… not much to of a pungent floral tone, but more like the taste of air in mid-spring when flowers bloom emitting the fragrance into its surroundings.
A truly lovely Darjeeling Tea – this is one you should try…
• DRY LEAVES: Fine cut golden brown leaves.
• LIQUOR: Dark orange with a very fruity aroma.
• INFUSION: Coppery-Brown leaves with a mild muscat nose.
