A memorable visit to the tea factory with its stunning mountain top views and quiet, serene atmosphere. We were fortunate to have a tour with the director of the factory who drove us to the nearby area where the tea leaves were growing, as well as bounty of other plant life and to see, touch and yes, smell cinnamon, cloves...

We bought some tea at the Tea Factory Shop (the one you see from the road, opposite the parking area) today and found out later that they charge more than double the price than in the supermarkets on the island. We drove back to the tea factory and I asked the guy why it is more expensive at the tea... More

You can make a stopover at Tea Factory and see packing process. Vantage points from top of the mountain @ tea factory gives you a panoromic view of Sea . on the... More

It is, what it is, it is a tea factory. I would not call it exciting. Good way to to pass time if you are in that area of the island, but do not go out of your way just to see this.

This place is a bit tricky to find if you're driving yourself around coming from the west side of Mahe. We actually went first on a Sunday (don't bother, it's closed), and then went back on Monday so got to feel like we knew where we were going. The tea factory itself is interesting and of course smells very nice.... More

Arrive during the morning and you will hopefully get a tour of the factory which includes the whole process for producing tea. The tea grows on a hillside surrounding the factory. There is a lovely view of the coast. The guide is very informative about the process and machinary. You can buy some tea when you've finished!

To visit the tea factory is a nice trip for an afternoon. Approx. 30 Min. drive from Victoria you have also a nice view from the top. The place shows you the different steps in tea production and there is always somebody who gets you around. You pay a rather small entrance fee. You can buy all sorts of good... More

It is up in the hills, 25 mins from victoria. If you are driving from victoria, it is on your left side and since it is not greatly sign posted, it is quite easy to miss. It is a small place with a mosdest entry fee. Paying in Rupees gives you better value. You can roam around freely and see... More
