I was assured this was the best place to buy tea ; certainly they sell every kind of local tea that you can think of . If you are a serious buyer you may get the full treatment and have a tea tasting .

A large variety of both indigenous as well as international brands of tea are available over a wide range of aroma and price. 2. One can taste the liquor of the tea one intends to purchase. 3, The seating arrangement is good and comfortable.... More

Staff were pushy and I felt pressured to buy packets of tea than just do a tea tasting (that was paid for). The atmosphere was chaotic.

All the great Darjeeling teas as well as teas from around the world including China. I was surprised to see Oolong and Puer Teas in stock as well as a variety of tea brewing equipment. The cup of Darjeeling tea they make is to die for

Golden Tips tea houses are modern, cosy and yet carry the tea-estate charms. We visited the outlets in both Gangtok and Darjeeling. Staff is well mannered and extend their courtesies in serving their fine teas. Do taste a selection before ordering one.

We were offered no less than ten samples to try and found two to our taste which we took home. Charming service from the Champagne tea region.

We were able to try teas from the four tea types. We then narrowed them down to our favourite plantation (Martha's Hope) but felt it was a bit too smokey so they suggested that we try a 2016 second flush (we had been trying the first flush). We found the second flush more to our liking. In all we tried... More

In the middle of taking the order, waitress takes a call on her mobile and forgets about the order altogether. On enquiring about the WiFi, she gives a password which is wrong. When I tell her this fact, she says ' Oh! Go and check at the main counter'. (tea)leaves a bad taste all in all!

Darjeeling has a few tea shops and tea lounges to savour the world famous produce from the surrounding hills. This one is bang on the mall. Seating was comfortable and service prompt. There is a wide array of options to order and different price range. Tea testing sessions were also available. We ordered golden orange pekoe. Quite satisfied with the... More
