    $24.00 CAD for 125g
    This summer tea brews a light golden-amber colour with a full, syrupy mouthfeel. Earthy orange notes eventually give way to a light muscatel finish.

Unfortunately she died of a tropical disease on the way back and her hope remained unfulfilled. Formerly known as Bara Ringtong, the garden was then rechristened as Margaret's Hope.
