From Canton Tea Co

We are delighted to include this as one of our first examples of top grade Indian tea. It is a magnificent high grown Darjeeling from Margaret’s Hope, a tea garden that’s known and loved the world over. The long twisty leaves are a delightful mix of chocolate and copper browns with an abundance of silvery tips. It produces a bright gold liquor with a malty aroma, a well rounded flavour and a sweet, fruity aftertaste. This fresh, brisk tea denotes a well-produced, high grade Darjeeling. We only have a few kilos and then there is no more available – anywhere.

This is an AWESOME Darjeeling.

The flavor is so clean and crisp. I agree with TeaEqualsBliss on this one, there is a malty note to this, which I find to be rather unique for a Darjeeling. Malty overtone with a crisp, sparkling medium body. Not much astringency for a Darjeeling. A nice fruity undertone.


PS: Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I’m loving it!

The second infusion is very flavorful – the malty flavor is not present as it was in the first, but I am getting a stronger sweetness and fruit flavor – I can taste hints of apple, grape and currant. Lovely!!!

I concur! I even gave it to my mother for Christmas…who – by sheer coincidence – is named “Margaret”.


@Geoffrey – what a lovely gift!

I’m totally diggin’ this one from Canton right now!

I like the 2nd Flush better than the 1st because it smells more malty and the taste is less leafy-astringent (I know there is a better way of explaining the taste but I can’t think of it at the moment)…anyhow…I like this – it’s good!

Both hot and cold!

Very special Darjeeling. Rather light, so drink it on its own. Nutty with a bit of light fruit in the finish + a bit of malt.
