Margaret`s Hope Tippy clonal ftgfop-1 /DJ 178/2nd flush 2012 Darjeeling tea
We have been able to procure the finest quality Muscatel Darjeeling teas produced from the china bushes and now it was a challenge to procure something sweeter, tender and fruity tea. I personally wanted to have something different so on the last week of June 2012, I started to concentrate and taste more samples of the clonal varieties.
Though I have procured some of the finest clonal 2nd flush 2012 teas, but this lot from Margaret`s Hope is really very fruity. The dry leafs are larger in size and has a lot of long size silver tips. The dry leafs have a very fruity aroma of ripe grapes, plum, sugarcanes and dry fruits and leaves a bright/golden liquor in the cup.
Each sip is extremely fruity and gives out clear hints of pineapples and muscatel on the palate.
I personally think this is an exceptional tea available at a very reasonable price and is available at a very limited quantity. Tea Lovers who prefer teas with high fruity flavors and mellow after taste should not miss this tea at all.
