Going to bois cheri is definitely for the tea and the scenic view. The view of the lake and the tea plantations is stunning! Great setting for lunch. The tea chutney was a real tasty surprise. The food was nice and the freshly brewed ice tea was just the best. A bit expensive but it can be forgiven when you... More

Spectacular view. Were there for lunch and tea tasting. Tried their tea chutney as appetizer and it was very good. A lot of different flavoured tea to choose from for tasting and purchasing. Impressive choice and all were good.

Was a bit disappointed with this place. It's Rs200 for a tea tasting, 250 for tasting and museum and a whopping Rs400 to also see the packaging plant. What's more, my husband who doesn't drink tea was told he would have to pay Rs100 just to enjoy the view from the restaurant where the tasting takes place!!! We fought this... More

This is a lovely way to spend an afternoon in Mauritius. After 5 days in the crowds and traffic of Port Louis - this was my first taste of 'paradise island'. The grounds are spectacular, the restaurant (only open for lunch) could not be better in terms of views, service and food. We had iced tea (amazing) and shared appetizers... More

Located in the higher grounds you will see tea plantation, the tea factory and a mini museum which will resume the history of Tea. Dont forget to go to the restaurant where you will eat special yummy food (with tea) Near the restaurant there is also the tea saloon where you can have a drink

I say this , whilst the factory had been modernised some time ago , it still seemed very noisy, dusty the jobs repetitive , and "elf & safety " seemed to be a lower priority . You see the whole picture from the sack consisting of the top three leaves entering the factory , to drying , sorting , flavouring... More

A truly interesting and educational experience in the tour of the tea factory. The museum's presentation techniques and medium are a little outdated, but the displays are still interesting. The site is beautiful, and offers wonderful panoramic views and great photo opportunities given its elevation. The free tea tasting adds great value and benefit to the excursion, and optional crepes... More

Don't bother paying hugely inflated prices to go to this attraction. Hire a local taxi and go to Bois Cheri Tea Factory. As you are independent you get a VIP tour and not be in a group of 20 with different languages. A really interesting tour with a sample of tea types in the tea rooms later. Join this up... More

The tea factory is well worth a visit, you get a guided tour of the factory and then tea tasting. We combined this trip with the Colonial House where we did rum tasting. Good day out.
