Darjeeling Margaret's Hope 2nd Flush is a Single Estate Black Tea cultivated on India's famous Margaret's Hope tea plantation situated at the foothills of the snow-capped Himalayas. Its carefully designed and developed pedigree ensures that tea drinkers enjoy smooth, consistent, slightly bitter flavor redolent of grapes, along with rich color and a delicate, fragrant bouquet.

Black Tea

The Story of this Tea's Name:

The tea estate from which this tea comes is named for the original founder’s daughter, Margaret. In 1870, Mr. Bagdon, Margaret’s father, was the first to plant tea on the southwest ridge of the Balsun River in Darjeeling, India. He named his tea estate Bara Ringtong. Young Margaret fell in love with the natural scenery of the area, with the Himalayan Mountains rising out from the Kurseong Valley.

With plans to soon return, Margaret and her mother left for their home in England while her father stayed in India to oversee the tea estate. Sadly, Margaret fell ill on journey and passed away.  Her father was overcome with grief, especially as he couldn’t leave India. Mr. Bagdon decided to rename his tea estate after his daughter so that she would never be far from him.

To this day, Margaret’s Hope tea estate is still one of the most renowned in the Darjeeling region. It produces tea with a flowery aroma and the taste of young muscatel grapes.  The next time you enjoy a cup of this fine tea, remember Margaret.

    I was familiar with Darjeeling so I thought I would give this a try. I'm glad I did.

    My first Darjeeling

    Posted by Debbie Mathewson on Dec 11th 2018

    I've never had a darjeeling before and I typically like a strong black tea. This is one of my favorites so far, up there with the Presidential Blend.

    This is flavorful and delicious any time of day, but especially in the afternoon - with cookies.

    Not quite

    This tea was not quite as flavorful as I had thought it would be. However, included was a sample of Capital Breakfast organic, which I enjoyed and will order next time.
