It's free to go around the teafactory while they are manufacturing the tea. There is also lots of old teamachines there. At the end of the round in a factory (which didn't cost a thing) there is opportunity to taste every teatastes they are manufacturing. And for free of course. There is also teashop where man can buy teas, icecream... More

We decided to take a tour of the tea factory which is free to do. they offer free tea of each kind that is grown at the plantation. The kids were amazed at how the process was done and seeing the machines operate. This tour only takes about 15 to 20 minutes of your time. There is an area to... More

One of the places where the Azores should be. Factory with interesting shops where you can buy various types of tea, as well as its taste.

Doesn't take long to tour but it was a nice stop on our way to the beach. You can sample their tea and it's very good, excellent quality. Worth a visit.

- Free Teas ( all of their teas are free to try and are amazing to go with the portugese desserts that have. -Enjoyed watching the video explaining the process involved with the tea and toured the factory and explored the museum they are remodeling behind the factory. A lovely church is behind the museum at the back entrance of... More

A traditional tea processing plant. Take a wander through the tea fields overlooking the sea then through the factory. The machines are all belt driven and are made of shiny brass. The place smells delicious. There are free tea samples and you can by leaves to take home. Interesting stuff.

Stopped here on our tour of the Azores. We had free tea tastings and bought Portuguese Tarts (delicious) Staff were very friendly - even converted our coffee loving friends, who bought packets of tea to take back to our cruise. While you are there, you must buy some of the home made soap for 4 Euro which was truly amazing... More

Pretty cool experience to see the fields growing and the processing. The lack of safety regulation was rather concerning for the workers but quite interesting to see the 'reality' of the workings of the plant.

Not knowing anything about tea I was looking forward to this visit. Also this Visit turned out to be free. You want through the exhibit by yourself. We were very lucky as they were grinding the tea leaves with their very old equipment when we arrived. In the next room they show a continuous loop of film which is in... More
