Margaret’s Hope is a 150-year-old tea estate, founded as the Bada Rington. It was later named Margaret’s Hope in fond memory of the then Estate Manager’s daughter in the early 20th century. After 150 years, Margaret's Hope continues to produce its renowned first flush (spring) tea, which has a flowery aroma and golden colour. Its second flush produces a mellow cup with a muscatel character and bronze colour.

Margaret’s Deck was featured in the January 2017 edition of Outlook Traveller.
