Took my morning work tea break with Miss Margaret Hope of the Darjeeling Hopes, a senior citizen of indeterminate age from a fine family who has held up remarkably under sloppy storage and neglect. Grapey and muscatellitudinous, and I regret I can’t remember what she was like in her perkier days.

P.S. Culinary Teas still carries it, so evidently other people hold her in the same regard.

Steepster “geezer” (been reviewing here for more than a decade); tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
