If you're taking that road to get to the west side of the island, by all means stop by, but I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to get there. There's the one scenic view, and a simple tour of their tea production.

this place is located on the hills, within 20mins from Victoria city center and climbing up by car might not always be comfortable; however, it offers a magnificent view of the ocean.

I was able to get some of the best shots here. Morne Blanc ended up being too foggy at the top. The tea factory itself is nothing special. However I highly recommend stopping by if only for the views.

We stopped by this place on our drive through the Island. We didnt take the tour because the factory seemed quite small. However there is a great view of the western side of the island and just that is worth stopping by. There also is a small shop where you can buy local tea and you don't have to take... More

Good to visit and get a taste of the tea. There are amazing views and you can take a trip into the factory! Buy the tea to take with you too...

We stopped here before heading for a hike to the Morne Blanc. It has a great view where you can see most of the island from.

Having been here many times growing up over the years via family in Seychelles (I only come here from the UK in holiday) this was a nice place to visit after many years as an adult. Even my children enjoyed it with the pool table. Staff friendly and happy to advise about tea (obviously, lol) so chose to try cinnamon... More

Take bus no. 14 from either Victoria or Port Launay and get off at the tea factory. Don't waste your time there - nothing to see and little to purchase. Instead, walk up the mainroad for 200 meters and then take the footpath to the Morne Blanc. This is a great rainforest experience with no dangers! Tip: When back from... More

This is not a must do in Mahe. Its nice to drive over the mountain, with nice views, etc. The tea factory itself doesn't offer much. Its just a old factory, there is nothing more about it.
