Where To Buy: Canton Tea Company
Product Description: We are delighted to include this as one of our first examples of top grade Indian tea. It is a magnificent high grown Darjeeling from Margaret’s Hope, a tea garden that’s known and loved the world over. The long twisty leaves are a delightful mix of chocolate and copper browns with an abundance of silvery tips. It produces a bright gold liquor with a malty aroma, a well rounded flavour and a sweet, fruity aftertaste. This fresh, brisk tea denotes a well-produced, high grade Darjeeling. We only have a few kilos and then there is no more available – anywhere.
These leaves are so fun! They have quite the personality! Long, thin, windy, twisty, brown-grey leaves. The aroma is quite memorable with a malty and almost chewy scent – moreso than any Darjeeling I have tried.
The taste is one to remember, too! Fairly bold and full but less astringent than most Darjeelings I have tried. It also leaves you with a pleasant and semi-sweet aftertaste.
I must say this is one of my favorite Darjeelings to date! Very unique and leaves me wanting more!
