A tea factory that uses machinery and procedures from the 19th century. Very interesting, especially if you are a tea lover. The tea is nice and they will serve all the tea you can drink for free. If you want to buy tee is also very cheap.

In my opinion this place is not interesting enough to go to Gorreana only to visit the factory. But if you happen to be near it it is worth a short visit. Picturesque tea bushes and machinery once used as well as contemporary ones ... Nice views, enjoyable short break with a cup of tea!

The Cha Gorreana Tea Plantation and Trail is a great place to visit. We started by visiting the museum on a self guided tour - We walked in expecting a tour and everyone just ignored us and kept working and finally some just said to walk around. You're right in the workings of the tea processing. At the end they... More

We thoroughly enjoyed touring the tea plantation. Really interesting. The tea itself is delicious and I was kicking myself for not buying more while there. We also hiked up through the plantation to the top of the hill for some great views.

Most interesting. Web went here as part of a day long tour with our tour guide. We got to see them harvesting the tea leaves from the bushes in the fields. Certainly not something that we would thought of going to or had seen before. We walked around in the factory and saw all of the processes and equipment that... More

Its interesting to see the production of tea as many do not even know what the tea plant look like, but get a guided tour and try all the different teas. Take your time and go outside as well and look at the plantations. Without guides, its just plants and machines - with a guide to learn so much about... More

Interesting tour of the Gorreana Tea Factory. Machines used in tea production are largely made by British. The green tea is far better taste that US supermarket green tea.

Interesting place to visit - although out-of-season. Not many visitors - not much activity to sea but very friendly guides and a free tasting of tea grown in Europe. Fascination to see the tea fields over the mountings.
