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!

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

Nice ambience, Hundreds of different types of tea make us confused about the order !! One thing i must say the shop is only for tea, no other snacks are available there .

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.
