From The Cultured Cup

In memory of his prematurely deceased daughter Margaret, who had loved his garden very much, the proprietor Mr. Bagdon gave her name to the plantation in the early 1930s. Plants of the Chinese type Thea Sinensis are almost exclusively cultivated on this plantation. A sparkling, fully aromatic tea from the beginning of the second flush period with a full amber colored cup. The bouquet is aromatic, spicy, and has a hint of sweetness.

Margaret’s Hope is a very famous estate in Darjeeling that most tea shops carry. Unfortunately I found this tea to be a bit bitter and and too astringent while lacking the beautiful muscatel tones that I love in Darjeelings.

This is the go-to tea if you must focus on tedious tasks, i.e. Microsoft spreadsheet data consolidation. The amber liquor will cheer you and banish any lingering thoughts of monotony. Although some may prefer this with sugar, for me it’s perfect without it.
