Green teas from the Barnesbeg tea estate are highly sought after. 'A well-styled leaf beaming with brisk flavors' is the hallmark quality about the teas from here and this green tea is no exception. It's a low caffeine, organic tea with clean vegetal flavors, the kind that you can sit with, no matter the hour or the season.

Starts strong but looses steam midway

I got this tea as a free sample. The dry tea had a lovely fruity-flowery aroma, very similar to other excellent spring flush darjeelings i had tasted (including those from Castelton, Goomtee etc). The initial immediate aroma upon steeping are vegetal, slowly followed by the flowery notes. On the palate one gets the flowery-vegetal notes up front, but the fruity aromas are somehow not very evident. The liquor does have a mild astringency and subtle sweetness, but the lovely layered aromas of some of the other spring flush darjeelings are missing. Overall a very good tea, but just short of being wonderful...

An Excellent Darjeeling

Dislikes : Strong.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning, Afternoon.

Let me start this off by admitting that I am not tasting this under the most ideal tea-making circumstances. The joys of drinking tea at work. It has a very nice dark amber color in the cup, and a very light pleasant aroma. I found this to be pretty astringent, with a strong mineral taste with a hint of the well-known muscatel. to, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

This offering from the famed Margaret's Hope estate does not disappoint. Slightly astringent, nice muscatel, lovely deep amber infusion. I like to start my day with this one; it is one of my go-to teas for the morning.

Simply delicious--like a fine wine....

This is an exquisite tea and a longtime favorite of mine. In the last two years, however, the Margaret's Hope that I have purchased locally in the U.S. and online from a number of merchants has been, sadly, inferior and definitely not the real thing. But my search is now over. Thank you, Teabox, for this lovely, authentic Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling. You have gained a loyal customer.
