Great place to sip good Darj tea.

Great place to sip Darj. However they previously had options for some snacks to go along with the tea, but for some reason they've discontinued. Not eve a cracker or small cake to go along with the tea. However the quality of tea almost made up for it.

Only a short walk from the Windermere, it was interesting to taste about 5-6 varities of teas. Staff explain what part of the plant, the particular tea comes from, we tasted Black Tea, which is clear, to blends, such as Autumn Flush, it was interesting how different they were in smell and taste. To purchase, the cost for small packets... More

Nice place to try different kinds of tea before buying the one you like. The staff explains the differences and helps you decide better. They also had nice pots and accessories. Was a nice experience.

This is one place where we learned the most about types of tea and bought some of the very expensive teas other than Makaibari. The staff were highly educated and could answer most of our questions. They recommended teas based on our taste and when we actually tasted them later back home we found them excellent.

What I liked best about this shop is that they have all the accessories related to tea. Very nice pottery and at reasonable prices. I bought quite a few things from there and the stuff is really different.

This is a shop at the northern end of the Mall. There is a tea tasting bar inside and they stock across many local gardens. We bought quite a few varieties based on the recommendation of the salesperson, and it was pretty good. The different varieties and details were nicely explained to us. Not sure about the prices, and how... More

I bought some fine Darjeeling tea from this store. the products here are a little costlier than outside market, but I assure you the tea is genuine. I also purchase loose tea from a nearby tea garden outlet, but the quality of the former is far superior than it, when you are to buy gift/tea for your beloved ones, don't... More
