Margaret's Hope Exotic Spring White Tea

description

Over the last few years, we've grown to look forward to this tea for its bright, fruity flavors. Made from fragrant AV2 clones, this year’s white tea from Margate’s Hope is a standout - big on flavors of tropical fruits and aromatic flowers, crisp around the edges, and yet impeccably balanced and velvety smooth.

the experience

liquor

aroma

Heady notes of red mango, lavender, and undercurrents of cape jasmine.

appearance

Champagne

taste

The liquor is immensely aromatic but well-balanced, smooth, ample in the mouth and tipped with floral-fruity sweetness. There is a crisp floral note resembling lavender oil that dominates the cup. A fruity sweetness, similar to that of red mangoes, emerges around the middle and the back, balancing the rich floral attributes of the cup. The second steep is mellow but flavorful.

COMPLEMENTS

Best enjoyed on its own or with light, creamy desserts.

dry leaf

Sweet and fragrant, marked by notes of orchid, lily, tropical fruit, and hints of young wood.

Delicious fresh tasting tea

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime.

This is one of the best teas I have received in my subscription, light and delicate with a floral note. It is the perfect balance of flavor, but not overpowering at all. I almost always have a second cup!
