We've visited the tea factory during our stay in Seychelles. Our guide told us very interesting things about the place and the tea plantation. The factory is located very high in the island, but the view from there is breathtaking.

It was dull and overcast up in the hills when we visited so photo opportunities of the coast views were limited. Interesting tour which was very short as the tea production process does not take too long to explain. Entry cost was only $2 per person so didn't break the bank. Various type of tea can of course be purchased... More

We went and there was no tour and despite a notice saying no entry without a tour guide we were ushered through to look for ourselves. We felt a bit voyeuristic and uncomfortable staring at people at work packing teabags. The rest is a museum of old machines used for making tea. We did not see anywhere where we could... More

it's very nice place, nice view. But I think the presentation was only about 2-5 minutes and it was not too much. They don't have a lot for view. But if you have way around you have to see it. I saw first time machines for sorting tea and also how they pack the tea

Visit if you like tea and are interested in knowing about processing of tea. There is a guided tour costing just SCR 25 (USD 2) per head, where the guide will give you complete details of various stages of processing of tea, starting from tea leaves to packaged tea. You get to see the machinery and finally you end up... More

Very good view. It is a little bit interesting. Nice to walk around with children. It is a place to visit for 30- 40 minutes maximum.

It's worth a stop on the trip if you rented a car for the day. It has a couple of great views of the other side of the island and the tea is very inexpensive and makes a great gift from the islands!

The drive to the Tea factory is simply awesome, through dense jungles and uphill drive. Although there isn't much to see inside the tea factory, other than few ladies packing tea, its was a wonderful place for us as we managed to buy a huge selection of varied flavored tea & white tea. The views from the tea factory are... More

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.
