A superb tea which captures the pungent 2nd flush flavour at its peak. During the 1930's the tea garden was owned by Mr. Bagdon who lived in London but visited the tea garden regularly. He had two daughters. The younger daughter named Margaret; who when she first saw the tea garden fell in love with it hoped one day she would have an opportunity to return. Sadly she fell ill on board a ship during the return trip to England and died soon after. In her memory her father changed the garden's name to Margaret's Hope. It is believed that she still visits the estate bungalow from the western side coming through the main guest room and leaving from the study through the verandah to the tennis courts. Many guests have claimed to have felt and even seen her apparition gently looking over them as they sleep. The bushes at Margaret's Hope are almost entirely the Chinese Jat (genus) accounting for the green leafed tippy appearance of the resulting leaf and the superb fragrance.

Lovely Darjeeling Margaret's Hope Tea

Darjeeling *Margaret's Hope* tea is exceedingly good, especially when mixed with a little Keemun *Huangshan* Orange Pekoe.

Darjeeling Tea

I have drunk Darjeeling tea for breakfast for many years trying several different estates and blends. But I always come back to Margaret’s Hope. Apart from the taste, which is excellent, it’s the story behind it. The quality of the service from High Teas also helps.

Always delicious

The post let us down with delivery but this was later rectified by High Teas. Margaret's Hope is a tea I regularly drink.

Why was the Hot Chocolate out of Date

I would love to give a review for the tea, but I have tried to contact you in a number of ways, about the chocolate (in the same order) being out of date. And I have still not had a satisfactory answer. On Facebook Messenger, someone did apologise and said they would pass it on to the office...... but still not had a response???
