    Busy tour stop but very interesting
    Interesting to see the working process of making tea leaves/bags on a working plantation. Very busy with several tour buses though. Gift and tea shop also very busy. You can sample two teas or purchase.

    Great tea plantation
    The plantation allows you to walk allover and check things out. You can learn how they make their tea and then go and try some of their tea for free. They also have a store with at least a dozen types f tea for sale.

    Need a guided tour for maximum enjoyment
    This is a fantastic free experience that we happened upon. The factory is free to walk through, but you will get much more out of it if you ask to join a guided tour. The equipment used to process the tea is not modern at all and parts of the processing are very manual. There is the opportunity at the end to sample a couple types of tea, and you will leave with a new appreciation of tea.

    Interesting if you like tea
    This is an interesting free experience if you like tea. You get to explore their building where they process the tea from oxidation to packaging. It’s a very manual process. There is a spot to taste the tea as you walk through the building. And of course a shop at the end to buy the tea. You can also walk through the tea plants that are growing on the farm.

    Such a nice experience!
    We were driving from one miradouro to the other, stumbled upon the tea factory and decided to enter. We were very surprised to find out the walk through it was completely free. During the visit we didn't completely understand what each of the machines was used for, so it would be great if there was a tour guide. The pamphlet they gave us provided us with some nice facts about the factory and the tea produced there. You can also try their tea for free and... it's really tasty! Also, at the end of the factory/museum there is a shop where you can buy their products. Plus, there is a great panoramic view for the terrace of the shop! P.s. There are some really friendly cats there that are in the mood for cuddles!

    Enjoyable and well worth a visit
    Well worth a visit if you are anywhere close by. You can opt to meander around the processing factory on your own or get a free guide to explain the process to you. The young guides are really friendly and knowledgeable about the process and the historical equipment and well deserving of the voluntary tip at the end of the tour. There is even free tasting of the black and green teas at the end of the tour and also of course a shop selling the plantation wares. There is also a cafe with a balcony dining area overlooking the lower plantation serving snacks and of course, tea. We only walked around the lower plantation which was being harvested whilst we were there and interesting to see and speak to the harvesters, however there is also a much larger tiered plantation across the road that is also free to visit, should you fancy a 45 minute walk about. We enjoyed it, and there were plenty of visitors, including many children who seemed to be having a ball

    A wonderful tea experieince
    This is a must to learn how tea is made and hoe the plants are cultivated. The tour is all free and you can walk the tea plantation. They do offer complimentary tea and have a nice cafe and tea store. A treat and a must

    Great pit stop on way to Furnas or Nordeste
    Stopped in for morning tea and a snack on way to Furnas. They have expanded and now have an outside patio and serve food. From everyone we spoke to, all indicated that food was very good. Great views from patio, no cost for tea, so inexpensive stop for a snack or lunch. They also have their store where you buy any of the varieties of tea they make. Highly recommended for a quick stop

    very nice to visit the plantation and taste their delicious tea and cookies
    very nice to visit the plantation and taste their delicious tea, which is free. The plantation is beautiful to see and take photos, and their tea is delicious. In the shop they sell all kinds of things and we purchased the tea for home. The cookies in the restaurant are delicious and you should try them while enjoying their beautiful view. You can also take walking routes here, but we didn't do that, it was too hot that day. Nice to go these are the only tea plantations in Europe!

    Wonderful experience - would definitely recommend
    My husband and I drove to the Gorreana Tea Plantation on December 8. We were greeted by the staff as soon as we walked in. Much to our surprise, they immediately offered a guided tour. We had our own guide, Rafaella (I think). She was informative, entertaining, her English was great and we learned a lot about tea. Thoroughly enjoyed our time and sampled three types of tea (free). Left with three different types from the gift store, which I believe were less expensive than anywhere else to purchase. They were all friendly and we're so glad we went.

We expected a tour through the "factory" and the story of how the tea is made, but we got nothing. There is a "restaurant" where you can get a coup of green and black tea from the can and giving a donation, some videos are running on the screen and that´s it. Nothing more.

We loved this place and actually squeezed in a second visit on our last day just to get more of their wonderful cookies! The first time we joined a quick tour of the factory (free but good to tip) - the guide was so knowledgeable and nice. Then we went to the cafe where they have free samples of various teas (the Christmas blend was our favorite) and got some incredible tea infused cookies and other sweets. The view is beautiful, especially at sunset! Great to sit on the porch and enjoy your treats while looking out over the fields. Really peaceful in the morning, seemed to be busier later in the day. Would highly recommend.

The tea plantation has survived being in business well over a century. The teas are of good quality, fields are rotated every year and no fertilizer is used in the crops. Long they have been organic before it was in style. They offer a guided and self-managed tours of the facility and free samples. The highlight of our visits (we went twice as we enjoyed it so much) was the bake shop where they make pastries every day which you can enjoy with a drink of free tea by the plantation-side in an open air facility. Highly recommend you spend time here. Note it gets busy if/when the bus tours arrive, so be prepared. Please indicate if you found this helpful as it will help me focus my review efforts in the future, thanks!

I hate to write bad reviews but this time I just can't stop myself.
The place is very nice, the tea is good, but the staff is just unacceptable.
We spent some time at the front desk where there is a sign that invites guest to wait there for a guided tour. Then a lady told us that next tour was scheduled for 16:15. We were there at 15:45 so decided to wait. At 16:25 no-one was there so we started asking around. NO ONE helped us and the other guests waiting. Then we found the same lady that had started a private tour with two guests.
When we asked her what was going on she just told us that they had previously paid for a tour and the next free one would be around 17:00.
I was happy to pay to join a guided tour but we had no information at all and we waste more than 1 hour waiting for her, doing nothing. This is definetly not what I call a good customer service.

We have not seen a mechanised tea plantation before. Pretty setting for tea bushes looking out to the ocean. The tea is light and easily drinkable. There is a cafe on site selling one of the best ice creams and pastries.
