Taster’s Review:

I’ve had several Margaret’s Hope Darjeelings in the past, but, it seems that the time between them is distant, and in the time of absence, I seem to forget just how good the Darjeeling tea from Margaret’s Hope estate really is.

The brewed tea has a delightful fragrance.  It has an overture of spice – clean and refreshing – with a mid-note of wood and a pleasant undertone of fruit-like sweetness.  This is one of those teas that you should inhale deeply before taking a sip to get full satisfaction from the tea.

A crisp, medium-bodied tea, this Darjeeling has an amazing flavor that is somewhat spicy in composition.  Not spicy-hot kind of spicy, but a savory, hint of pepper and woody spices kind of spicy.  There is also a sparkling fruit-like taste to it.   The finish is sweet with an aftertaste of fruit and pepper.  I’m also finding this to be only slightly astringent – not nearly as astringent as some Darjeeling teas can be.

This tea makes for a very pleasant afternoon tea.  A fine representation of what Darjeeling should be!
