This lounge is within Nathmull's tea house and offers plenty of tea and snacks options for visitors. The ambience is decent and tea tasting is a different experience altogether.

I feel SO lucky to have stumbled into Sunset Lounge early on in our Darjeeling trip so I could learn more about the different flushes of tea and what properties each of them have in common.

Keeping with the name, we made our visit for our cuppa just in time for sunset. The tea tables near the bay windows are definitely the most coveted. There are a huge variety of teas available...

There is many places to drink tea in Darjeeling, this one is boring and the staff also looks bored, and if you want to know tea don't ask them, they don't care, we bought a very else pensive tea to taste, with shortbread on the side, and the served spicy shortbread, not very clever when you are tasting fine tea...

Sunset lounge is for tasting Darjeeling tea just as Edinburg & Bordeaux district are for tasting scotch & wines respectively. A nice outlet colocated wirh Nathmulls tea shop which sells tea ranging upto Rs 15000/ kg. You can taste all kinds of tea black, green & White @ a price ranging from 25~150 Rs/cup. What makes the joint interesting is... More
