A trip to Darjeeling remains incomplete without purchasing some Darjeeling tea. The tea gardens are no longer what they used to be, but still there is muscatel, and few other varieties that you may like to sip. Goodricke is a good place to pick and choose your supply from. Its location is very good.

Excellent place to fetch Darjeeling tea. I read a lot of reviews here which makes me feel that many dont understand the true nuances of tea and tea making. Good quality tea can be as expensive as Rs.1 Lac per kg. Darjeeling tea today is a patented product and is manufactured not just in Darjeeling but also in Mexico and... More

Perhaps, our expectations were high but we were disappointed. One can taste any sample of tea at a cost of Rs 30 per cup but we could not find a good flavored tea even at the cost of Rs 3000 per kg. Better tea is available at good old tea retailers at Kolkata.

Have the tea you want to buy. Yes, they also serve tea. Almost the entire variety they sell. They serve it in a transparent glass cup so that you can see the color. Since all leaves look alike, we want to test if they tasted any different. It did taste different - we tried 4 different flavors just to check... More

The history of tea in our country is highly interesting.
