We wanted to taste teas but were made to feel quite unwelcome by a woman who was far more interested in chatting on her mobile phone. Nathmull's, on the other hand, offered hospitality and expertise that allowed us to taste and buy lots of tea. Skip this place and go to Nathmull's.

This tea parlour has more than 100 varieties of tea to offer. A very nice place for couples and friends to hang out over a cup of rich flavored Darjeeling tea.

Good place right on the mall road. You can taste the white tea and some other good variants of Darjeeling tea here. Prices are reasonable and nice small place to enjoy your morning tea.

I bought all of my Darjeeling tea here, as it offered a huge variety. The place was packed, but lots of staff to help you decide what to buy based on your tea preferences.

The smell of tea goes right through your nostrils. The place is like a tea studio. So many varieties that one just cannot choose by himself. But the people at the counter are very helpful and they see to it that you get the best buy.

We are enthralled by the quality and collection of the tea leaves they offered. Every tea we bought here is just amazing and running out fast!

They have a good collection of black teas and the people working there are very helpful. Anyone visiting Darjeeling should spend some time here sampling some tea and then choose some good ones.

A thoroughly enjoyable boutique tea showroom and tea shop on the main Chowrasta Square in Darjeeling. I had a very wonderful "Castleton Imperial Darjeeling First Flush Black Tea," prepared with exquisite care (multiple boiling of the water, various straining, and more) and the final tasty brew was served in a brandy snifter! There was enough left for about 1.5 more... More

Very nice tea bar. But they should keep some food like cakes, muffins, biscuits etc to help travelers get some food with tea.

This is the place to go to try different varieties of tea and then spend a lot of money stocking up on your favourite. Don't go for their cafe menu, rather select a number of teas from their selection to have tasting cups of. Also a good way to taste really expensive teas (like the white silver tip ones) that...
