This is a franchise outlet of Goodricke tea and offers some 50 plus tea varieties. You can try tea and purchase as well. This place also has ice creams on their menu.

I love tea and have visited too many tea shops in Darjeeling to count. I found the staff helpful and knowledgeable and Goodricke's was also a lot quieter and than some of the other tea shops in the area. The prices were as good as many others in this area of Darjeeling and a little cheaper than somoe of the more popular shops, it was also very clean. Small snacks and ice creams are available if you need more than just a cup of some of the fine Darjeeling tea.

Tea background at the counter followed by testing the tea you want to buy (you have to pay for it) and while you are lost in the aroma of fresh Darjeeling Tea, your tea is ready. Must try!

We had ice cream in the House of Tea and it was great, but what makes it worth the visit is the assortment of high quality Darjeeling tea and Mrs Puri, the proprietor who has a wealth of knowledge of tea and Darjeeling history and folklore.

My wife who is a passionate Darjeeling tea aficionado would be happy to visit the House of tea everyday. Apart from buying huge quantities for personal consumption and friends, Mrs Puri and she have long animated discussions full of arcane details about various gardens, first flush, whatever. I usually spend my time eating the rather nice range of ice cream on offer.

There are several outlets offering overpriced mediocre Darjeeling tea to buyers and in this m milieu, Mrs Puri and this outlet are a Godsend. Being an official outlet for the Goodricke Tea Company, everything for sale is the genuine article.

Located halfway down the crowded Nehru Street, the House of Tea is well worth a visit.

It's located at the main road itself and the brand of tea is very popular. The place is nice and simple but the tea is awesome. We ordered Margret's hope and castleton which were simply the best. Also we bought some tea from the place. Cakes and pastries are delicious.
