Darjeeilng Golden tips is more professional and knowledgable. This shop is more like a retail outlet feeling but they also have the tea menu. Just comparing both shops of same chain, I wud say that if you are visiting darjeeling also, you should visit that shop.

The Tea Boutique is located on the ground floor and not on the first as mentioned. They also have a host of tea accessories on display and sale. Golden Tips also has 2 Tea Boutiques in nearby Darjeeling, one at the Rink Mall and one at Chowrasta.

We stumbled upon this place, which is located above the Mall. It is slightly hidden, but when you find it, it is completely worth it. The ambience is very clean and charming. The staff has a very thorough knowledge about their products. Definitely worth a visit
