Drink Me: TeaGschwendner, Darjeeling Margaret’s Hope
From the packaging, this is an autumn harvested tea resulting in a softer tea with woody undertones.
Darjeeling Margaret’s Hope is available in the following sizes: 100g for $11.93, 250g for $28.34, 500g for $50.70 and 1000g for $101.40.
When I first opened the package I smelled a pleasant, almost nutty aroma. Once brewed it just smelled like a good strong black tea. I really like the taste of darjeelings. They manage to be strong tea, but not quite as bitter as some can me. This one had a really smooth finish. I think it is great as an afternoon pick-me-up, but would also love to combine it with a bit of fruit or other flavor for some fun. I do think I will prefer this one hot though.
