Had a tour around the factory which was interesting, even though it was not fully open due to it being the winter time. The highlight of the visit was the fantastic views whilst tasting all the different flavours of tea they make. Would agree with previous reviews about being able to purchase single boxes of the different teas rather than... More

Included the visit as part of a short tour of the South. Very near Grand Bassin. It was Sunday so factory not open but museum and tea tasting were. Museum was good and if you know nothing about tea worth 20 mins of your time. The best bit though was a visit to the tea room at the top of... More

Factory nt fully operational during winter month however we were well looked after. Kids received a good understanding of how tea is made from leaves to cup. Tea tasting restaurant again a wonderful... More

There is a museum and the factory to be visited but in July the factory is only open for maintenance so you won't see much. The museum is OKish and then you get to a place for degustation. You are a bit left alone there but can taste a few varieties. If you have never seen a tea plantation then... More

This plantation has a museum and allows small groups to go round the factory to see what happens to the tea from when it is delivered up to when it is packaged and sent out to be sold. Fascinating - and all the more so because the machines are the original machines - except perhaps for the tea bag tagging... More

Bois Cheri is the biggest tea producer in Mauritius (250 hectares) and they were in fact the first tea plantation on the island in 1892. This is a must-see for tea lovers or just for anyone who is curious and wants to learn something new and admire really beautiful scenery in the south western part of Mauritius in the mountains....

The museum gives a quick overview and is quite small, the factory tour is very nice and explains how green and black tea are created. You can see everything from delivery of tea leaves to the fermentation station and packaging / storing. Afterwards make sure to go to the tea tasting.

Bois Cherie tea factory, very interesting place, we were shown round the factory by Azza who was fun and knowledgeable. The process was explained simply and clearly, afterwards you drive through beautiful tropical gardens to the restaurant where you can sample many types of tea made at the tea plantation. Well worth a visit, we travelled independently so only had... More

Taking a tour with a driver, visited this factory, museum during a day tour. Individual guide takes you round the factory where they process the tea. Very informative, a good film explains the history of tea. We then went to the restaurant which was stunning, although the road to its was rough. Lovely tea tasting session. Meals available. Great views,... More
