Darjeeling First Flush Margaret's Hope

Lot DJ-18
Product code: CSTN-213

Established around 1830, Margaret's Hope garden in the Darjeeling district has historical and geographical aspects that make it one of the best known gardens for black tea in the region. The combination of a favourable climate and undeniable expertise gives us this unique batch of Moonlight style (very delicate rolling) from clonal cultivars.

The fine leaves and buds are rich and smooth in texture. The steeped leaves give off remarkable scents of balsam fir and fruit (orange, green apple). The plurality of flavours is followed by floral notes. These delicate flavours are typical of the AV2 cultivar in all its splendour.

Simply exceptional.
