This may have been different if we had done a tour. If you don't it's a nice place to stop and have a cup of tea! There is a small cafe and a shelf of tea you can buy. We had vanilla and citronella or lemongrass tea. Both were good. If you are passing its definayely worth stopping off for... More

Nice enough little cafe, however the shop that sells the teas they produce ask for twice the amount the product costs in local stores. Especially so for the organic range which costs something like 70 Rupees compares to 20 something in the stores.

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

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!
