This is the only tea plantation in the Azores, going back to sometime in the 1800s. And it must also be the most western European tea plantation. It remains an operational tea plantation, with acres of tea plants grown in waist-high hedges covering the hills...More

I went to the Chá Gorreana tea plantation. Very interesting. It was cool to learn about the process of picking and prepping tea. If you go, try the green tea gelato! It was awesome!

Again, for someone that the only thing he knew about tea was to drink it, this is a truly learning experience. In addition to learn about the production process you will have the chance to try the different teas for free. Make sure you take...More

The oldest factory still producing on the island. You can walk around freely through the factory and see all the processes of making black and green tea - if you like photography you will love the old iron machinery - you get to taste all...More
