Located in the majestic Darjeeling Himalayan hill region, at an elevation range of 3,000-6,000 feet, the Margaret’s Hope Estate has been producing outstanding teas for over a century and a half. This 2020 second flush offering continues that fine tradition with its rich fruity character, complemented by warm toasty/nutty notes. Hinting of freshly baked sugar cookies and fragrant grape leaves, the aroma introduces a dark amber cup with pronounced honey notes and hints of dark grape. The finish lingers with a suggestion of dry white wine.
