Truly could not recommend this experience more. Smita was both very knowledgeable and personable and catered the experience and tasting to my interests, preferences, and tastes. If you enjoy learning about or drinking tea, this is a must do experience.

This is an absolutely wonderful experience. If you enjoy drinking tea and trying new teas, this is for you. I enjoyed this tea experience more than having high tea in London.

I am a passionate person when it comes to food and wine but never saw the interest in becoming passionate about tea. Smita was able to give me a new perspective on tea that I never knew existed! The Japanese and Chinese relationship with tea, for me, is well known, however, there is so much more to a specific infusion of Darjeeling than I had ever imagined. I travel a lot and usually equate travel with a specific location or country. Now I know that one can "voyage" with a connoisseur of tea as passionate and knowledgable as Smita!! Please take the cups of tea with Smita and "Bon Voyage"!!
