  • Full Description

    This tea has been harvested and produced in late March when the temperatures are rising in this beautiful tea area and the leaves are beginning to shoot. What makes Darjeeling so outstanding is the fact that many of it’s tea gardens are situated at high-altitude which is promoting the quality and flavour of the teas. Margaret’s Hope has tea bushes growing at an altitude up to 6,000 feet above sea level.

    With a fresh, crisp aroma and a delicately fruity flavour, it’s the perfect example of what makes First Flush Darjeeling the finest tea. Serve in a glass teapot so you can enjoy the tea’s glorious golden hue as the silver-tipped leaves unfurl…

We've given our Margaret's Hope First Flush Darjeeling the number 865, to mark the founding date of the world-famous estate in 1865. 


The Margaret's Hope plantation is nestled in an exclusive corner of the Himalayan mountains, deep in the region of Darjeeling. Elevated up to 1830m above sea level, the cool mountain air encourages slow growth of the tea bushes which encourages the leaves to develop a more intense flavour. Many of these ancient tea bushes are over 150 years old and have been carefully cultivated to create this exquisitely crisp tea.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
