About Golden Tips

Golden Tips is a tea company based in India, specializing in directly sourcing and selling loose-leaf tea from India. Golden Tips was founded in 1933 by Madhav Sarda, and has remained a family business through four generations.

Golden Tips sells tea both wholesale and retail. Its own brand of tea is available in retail stores in India, and its teas can be bought globally, directly through its website. Their original retail storefront is based in Darjeeling.

The selection of teas sold by Golden Tips includes many single-harvest, single-origin teas, mostly from India but also including Nepal. The company sells some teas from regions that are not as widely available in the West, such as Nilgiri, Sikkim, and Kangra, and also unusual styles of tea that are infrequently produced in India, like green, white, and oolong teas.

I thought this an exceptional tea, probably the best white tea I've ever sampled.

Another lost review that I somehow missed posting.

The leaf of this tea is wonderfully fragrant, with an aroma completely distinct from both Chinese silver needle teas, and the very different variants of them I've tried from Africa ...

The taste of this tea can be summed up i...

India's Original Masala Chai

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India
Mar. 18th, 2015

A traditional chai that is smooth in flavor but is potently spiced, and equally enjoyable with and without milk.

For having such a finely-broken (CTC) base, this tea is surprisingly mellow and smooth. The dry leaf smells very fresh and light, and the dominant aroma is cardamom, and I can also detect clove. This bo...
