We originally went to Grand-Coude in search of the elusive Bourbon-Pointu coffee, but when we arrived after a windy journey uphill from the coast, we were rebuffed by the owner despite having called ahead. (Apparently, you need to call days in advance....Suffice to say, they didn't seem terribly focused on customer service -- but that's for another review.) But then we stumbled upon Le Labyrinthe, and our quest for Reunionais coffee was forgotten as we got lost in the world of Reunionais tea. The concept is a unique and engaging one -- rather than just have you walk around reading signs, they created a labyrinth of tea plants and bamboo, peppered throughout with instructive signs you have to locate in order to answer questions on a sheet they give you upon arrival. The signs explain the history of tea in Reunion, as well as the development of the industry and details about tea growing. Even adults like us really got into the game of searching for these signs. And the labyrinth is really a maze -- you won't get lost forever, but it is not just a few turns and dead-ends. After the tour, we got some tastings of white and green teas made there, plus more explanation about the industry. One caveat -- we both speak French, and we aren't entirely sure if the tour is available in English. Our discovery of this place made the trek up from St. Joseph well worth it, and suffice to say we bought no Bourbon Pointu (it is over-roasted, over-marketed for what it is, and charred-tasting anyway) but we did avail ourselves of lots of tea purchases!

The brief introductory tour explains the process of tea making and describes the various plants grown in the area. A wander through the labyrinthe is interesting though you only need a short stroll there. The tea tasting along with other local specialties is great. There is a great variety of tea for sale. The road up to the labyrinthe is quite scenic as well.

Response from EmmanuelleGuichard, Propriétaire at Le Labyrinthe en-Champ-Thé
Responded Dec 10, 2015
Bonjour dmittleman, Comme vous l'avez résumé, il y a de brèves explications sur le thé et le parcours du labyrinthe. Nos avons quelques lacunes sur les visites en langues étrangères, nous le savons. Nous envisageons prochainement d'enrichir nos commentaires et de présenter un livret traduit en anglais et allemand. Nos visiteurs étrangers pourront ainsi mieux apprécier la visite. J'espère que votre visite a été agréable. Cordialement. Hello dmittleman, As you summarized it, there is brief explanations on the tea and the route(course) of the labyrinth. We have some gaps on the visits in foreign languages, we know it. We soon intend to enrich our comments and to present a notebook translated into English and German. Our foreign visitors can appreciate so better the visit. I hope that your visit was pleasant. Cordially Emmanuelle GUICHARD
