Buddha Tea Shop: "Tea in Thamel" Kathmandu Shopping Tip by Saagar

Kathmandu Shopping: 42 reviews and 54 photos


A smallish shop specializing in teas and coffee and packaged spices in Thamel/Chhetrapati - a bit away from the crowds in the central area. A very good selection of teas and coffees. I still recommend the one down in Basantapur, Nepal Tea House, but if you do not have the time, the prices and quality at Buddha Tea Shop are also ok, even if geared mostly toward tourists.

What to buy: I found the selection and quality of green teas to be good, in particular.

What to pay: From 300 rupees to 9.000 per kilo, depending on type and quality. The latter price for Nepalese white tea.

Address: Chhetrapati road out of Thamel
Directions: Across from Everest Steak House on the road past Tibet Guest House in direction of Chhetrapati.
Theme: Food and Drink

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
