Darjeeling 'Margarets Hope' TGFOP

Along with Kenilworth, this is one of my two go-to breakfast teas. I drink it black and it is a gorgeous, gentle, refreshing and excellent quality tea - best black in my opinion. Highly recommended - quite delicious.

Darjeeling 'Margarets Hope' TGFOP

This is a beautiful, refreshing tea. I have a mobile High Tea Service in New Plymouth therefore the quality of the teas that I offer is very important to me. My clients rave about it so I will continue to offer it at my Tea Parties.
