Teams must make their way to Jin Fu Yi Zhan Tea Shop. Once there, they must take part in a Chinese tea tasting ceremony where they would be given a taste of papaya-and-mango-infused tea. Once they have finished drinking, they will receive a brick of tea and their next clue. Teams must bring their brick of tea with them until further notice.

Teams must fly to Kolkata, India. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to Kolkata Town Hall, where they will find their next clue.

"Who's ready to drink in the scenery?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must take part in an Indian tea tasting ceremony. First, they must take a papaya, a mango, and the brick of tea the teams received before leaving Kunming to the tea auctioneer. They must then search among several hundred tea cups for one that holds the same papaya-and-mango-infused tea that they tasted in China. Once they find the right tea, the auctioneer will give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams are given a bottle of Snapple iced tea and are left to figure out that their next clue was printed on the inside of the lid, which directed them to take a taxi to Jorasanko Thakur Bari and search for the Tiwari Tea Stall. There, teams must trade their Snapple bottle for their next clue.

Choice A: Hindu Art
Teams must travel to the Rakhal Paul and Sons statue shop, where they must paint and then dress a statue of the Hindu god Ganesha. Once the statue has matched the sample on display, they will receive their next clue.

Flight Time & Big Easy, Kent & Vyxsin, Kisha & Jen, Margie & Luke, and Ron & Christina chose this task.

Choice B: Bengali Literature
Teams must travel to Dey's Publishing House and pick up eight bundles of the children's book Introduction to the Bengali Alphabet. They must then get into a marked rickshaw school bus and direct the driver to the Victoria Institution High School and College, then search the grounds for the offices of the headmistress of the primary school where they would deliver the books and receive their next clue.

Gary & Mallory, Jet & Cord, and Zev & Justin chose this task.

Teams must make their way to the Maidan and find the Fountain of Joy to check in.
For coming in first place, Gary & Mallory won an Indian dinner for two featuring Bollywood-inspired dance entertainment to be enjoyed at the Pit Stop, and 1,000,000 (over $20,000) to share.
