Darjeeling Margaret's Hope
The tea is vacuum-packed at the estate capturing the pungent 2nd flush flavour at its peak. A top tea! During the 1930's the 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 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 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 visits the estate bungalow from the western side coming through the main guestroom 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 manufactured leaf and the superb fragrance.
