We visited Chá Gorreana while we where touringthe area. It is free to visit and it is a nice place to spent an hour or so looking at a old factory still being used and the tea plantation.

Very simple but cosy for me with a beautiful smell of tea inside the factory. Interesting to see everything running. Very nice experience. Walk also at least across the road to see more tea bushes there.

Beautiful part of island, nice easy walk in fields of tea. Good experience, how to get tea from plantation to your cup. And I never drink such a great green tea and black was very tasty too.

We didn`t expect much of going to a tea plantation, but once we were there, we got more than we expected. It was very interesting to see the machines and the fields. It was also nice that we could sample tea for free and there...More

Called in on our way to norde este. It's not obvious when you get there but it's free to look around and you can have a free cup of tea. You only pay a tip. There is a video showing the history of the place....More
