This is again one of the many good tea houses in Darjeeling offering plenty of options for tea lovers. The staff were very helpful and provided useful information. It was a different experience for a non-tea lover like me!

Spent about 1.5 hours here and sampled 14 varieties. All were good, some just OK, but a few were extraordinary! Prices aren't clearly posted and you get the feeling they make up a price for you depending on which one you want to buy and how much they think you're willing to pay for it (seems kind of shady if...

We went to golden tips at the rink mall. The place was amazing, a tea paradise. There were all kinds of teas and the beautiful teapots and other artifacts. You can buy or just have a sip of tea from their huge variety. This was the best tea place we went to.

Considering the tea pluckers are only paid about 80Rs/day, the cost of the tea in this shop is exploitative.

The tea tasted wonderfully, but the cost was almost 8 to 10 times the cost of the tea at Happy Valley, a nearby factory. I'll compare the quality at home!
