Taster’s Review:

I do love Darjeeling from the Margaret’s Hope Estate.  To me, it’s one of those Darjeeling teas that are a perfect example of what Darjeeling should be.  The cup is light and crisp, the muscatel so well-pronounced, and a sweet, wine-like finish.  Delightful!

This Margaret’s Hope 2nd Flush from Culinary Teas tastes remarkably fresh.  The flavor is indeed wine-like, and since I’m not much of a drinker of alcohol – wine or otherwise – I have to say that I’d prefer a cup of this Darjeeling tea over a glass of wine any day.

The sip starts with a sweet, fruit-like taste that develops on the palate from a sort of generic “fruity” taste into a more well-defined muscat grape flavor, and by the end of the sip, has become more like a black currant.  Throughout the sip, I notice other flavors too including  some wood notes and hints of spice.  The finish brings astringency that gives it a dry sort of sensation much like what you’d experience from a dry wine.  The aftertaste is reminiscent of a sweet grape taste.

An excellent Darjeeling!
