Darjeeling is known as the ‘champagne of teas’ and Margaret’s Hope is one of the Darjeeling region’s most celebrated tea gardens. The story behind the name is almost as romantic and enduring as the delicate, floral taste of the fine black tea produced here for more than 150 years. According to legend, Margaret was the treasured daughter of the estate’s first owner. She fell in love with the plantation’s natural beauty, but sadly became sick on a voyage to England and succumbed soon to the illness. In her memory, her grieving father renamed the estate Margaret's Hope. It is believed that her ghost still wanders the tea gardens today.
