Lovely drive into the highlands of Mauritius to the Bois Cheri tea factory. We took a car and drove ourself from Le Morne - reasonably well signposted but the signs are small so pay attention. It is a small factory but the guide was very proud of their products and the processes. The tea tasting after is a must -... More

Since it was our third time to Mauritius, we only had a few excursions to choose from. This little trip is not out of this world, but still worth it specially also to see the nature and ancient buildings. Lovely tea tasting overlooking the valley. In the very old factory ere you get to see how the tea is handled,... More

We were a bit disappointed in the tea factory tour. For 500 Rps each ($17US ea), the tour was pretty short (about 20-25 mins) and the guide kind of rushed us through. It's a labor intensive process and the factory is pretty small. There's a small museum in the same building as the tour with some interesting tea facts, a... More

I forget how much we paid, I think about 1000MR each. Fo this youget about 15 minutes to look around a 'museum' with some artifacts and pictures, then you get a 30-45 minute tour showing the whole process from the tea coming in to the packets being filled. This was interesting as was observing how safety interlocks on machine guards... More

When you start the tour you have your doubts, there is a small museum and a short video explaining the tea making process with the option to see the actual process. Once that's done they send you off for the tea tasting and this is were it gets good. It is a short drive from the museum itself, where the... More

The entry tickets are costly, but worth it if you have a taste for history. There is a small museum showcasing old photographs, history of tea, old teapots etc. They show a 20-minute movie about the history of tea in Mauritius. The movie is available in several major languages such as English, French, German, Chinese and many others. Then you... More
