There are so many shops on and around Mall road and Chowrasta. But this one is somewhat cold and un-welcome. Still, one might visit for trial, if so desired.

Almost all sellers of tea in Darjeeling get their ta through the Goodricke Tea Estates. As a company outlet you get the company produce at the company prices. Be friendly, have a few cups of tea here and learn about tea, and for goodness sakes do not add sugar or milk to you Darjeeling tea.
