I dont know why this place is so highly rated. They didn't offer much information about the teas they sold, and when I ordered some to drink there, the people serving it didn't seem very inclined to do so. The tea itself was good - badamtam first flush and we enjoyed it and went our merry way.

This place on the mall road is very nice. You can actually drink and select the tea you want to buy, before you buy those costly Darjeeling teas. The only drawback being that you have to pay for the tea you drink ...

The Goodricke Tea shop on the Mall road opposite the Planter's Club, is a good place to pick-up your Darjeeling Tea.

This place is very much informative. We have learned so much about tea not only Darjeeling but also other areas. We visited two times here and met both male owner and female owner - both of them were friendly and knowledgeable. Learned about differences among the tea reagions and how to drink. Now I know drinking without milk is the best way to enjoy Darjeeling tea and why it is named as Orange Peoko.

Tea qualities they have are same as what are exported to specialty tea outlets in UK, such as Harrods and Whitard. They also have dispatch service to all the world.

Highly recommend to visit.

Amazing array of options to choose for freshly brwed darjeeling tea. They also stock up good snacks to go with the tea which is served in pots.
