9 Tasting Notes View all

From Specifically Tea

A superb second flush Margaret’s Hope with lots of golden tips and a hint of green. The bouquet in the cup is sweet and the colour is a rich, clear red. The liquor flavour is complex, ranging from “nutty” to fruity sweet or characteristic “muscatel”, with a pleasant, astringent after note. As the tea cools the sweetness becomes the predominate note. This tea is both smooth and bold. It’s excellent on its own and can also stand up to milk and/or sugar. A great tea to serve with desserts. If you enjoy Darjeeling, this Margaret’s Hope is one not to be missed.

I’m resteeping the leaves from earlier and the taste is less nutty and more tannin-like, the muscatel wine flavour still about as strong as before.

The boyfriend-creature just came in from work and when I told him what kind of tea I was drinking he laughed and said “Sounds like some sort of alien species- ‘Help the Darjeelians are attacking!’” Jerk.

…I’m pretty sure my guy would say the same. Let’s hope there’s hope for them both.


I don’t get to much bounce back about the names of teas from my guy, it’s just the sheer vastness of quantities of teas I have that make him cringe. I have so many all bunched together that he can’t tell when I’ve added a new one to the collection. Guess that’s a good thing! ;)


@Jillian You should tell him they’ll suck his brains out when he’s sleeping. Though I suppose that would be more effective if he was five years old.

@Amyb Sneaky!

This’ the last of this. Thank you to Jillian for sending it to me.

Nutty and wine-like, and quite enjoyable.
