From the outside, this does not seem like a very big attraction, but there is enough to see. There is no entrance fee. There is a tip box in the packaging room at the end should you wish to give something. We started with a video of the plantation (in Portuguese) after which we took a leisurely stroll around the...

You get to see all the process of the tea making, you can visit the tea plantations, taste black and green tea, and buy some tea.

We didn`t expect much of going to a tea plantation, but once we were there, we got more than we expected. It was very interesting to see the machines and the fields. It was also nice that we could sample tea for free and there was a small café and gift shop. We love tea so visiting this plantation made... More

Called in on our way to norde este. It's not obvious when you get there but it's free to look around and you can have a free cup of tea. You only pay a tip. There is a video showing the history of the place. The tea shop is nice and cool and most people buy tea as a souvenir.

an old fashioned antique place where time seems to have stagnated as they proceed producing tea like it was 100 years ago. a modern cafetaria was implanted recently on an annex to the factory

Worth a stop to see how a tea plantation operates, smell the drying tea, see the machinery, admire the green surroundings, oceanview and beautiful flowers, and have some tea samples. This is one of only two tea plantations in Europe (the other down the road a little). There is also a cafe and a really interesting little film about how... More

We had bee to several coffee plantations, but this was our first Tea p,antation. The views of the ocean and fields were well worth the stop. Always nice to have some tea to relax on this lovely island.

Chá Gorreana is one of 2 tea plantations on Sao Miguel and there are good walks around the plantation and interesting machinery to see. Unfortunately we arrived self-driven and there are no facilities when you arrive to join a guided tour. It appears to be included in day trips from hotels or tours around the island, but there is no-one... More

We visited this place and another tea plantation about a mile away. Both were quite interesting, but the guides gave only a cursory explanation of things. Still, it's interesting to see the old machines and the beautiful fields of tea plants.
