“What you drink may not be what you buy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The tea garden was of course peaceful and nice. Even had snaps done in the tea-plucker costume. Had tea in one of the tea houses. The woman sold me tea leaves wrapped in paper, saying that its the same tea she served us.....surprise surprise! Came back home and opened a packet full of stalks and leaves that wouldn't turn the water a shade darker!

The shops at the start of the garden will serve you tea. They sell tea and its cheap and one of the best. A good place to visit.

“Crowded place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Darjeeling does not have one tea garden, it has several. So this depends on where your guide takes you. Most places are pretty crowded though. Some have little tea shops in front of them where you can sip sample teas & later buy them if you wish.

“must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Tea gardens look amazingly beautiful with their unending slopes of tea plantations and curved paths. It's a great sight plus you can buy and drink some of the finest teas. You can't go much downhill because it's too steep but the scenery is definitely worth a visit
