We came to Bois Cheri on a rainy day, not in the peak season. It wasn't a production day, so we didn't actually see people working, but the guide was great at explaining how this is done step by step. However, we've seen now tea is packed.
It is a very easy way to learn how tea is produced, even kids will be able to understand it and enjoy it. Process improvement managers would thrive there!

Tea-tasting was brilliant, especially that we were soaking wet and cold from the rain. Despite wanting to buy some of the tea, they don't sell it in individual boxes, only in packs of 3 or 6. So we ended up buying one in a local supermarket which turned out to be much cheaper.

Our guide book said to arrive before midday to get a factory tour; the day we visited the factory was not at work but nevertheless we got a walk round large parts of the factory and a detailed visit of the packing plant - if you have never seen a tea bag been made before it's almost worth the visit alone for this.
Steam engine buffs please note there is a working steam engine powering (I guess, in part) the factory.

Stunning grounds and lake, through which you need to be driven through to get to the tea tasting, the tea tasting and restaurant both high quality and again stunning views.

Pair a visit here with Grand Bassin, which is just a couple of miles down the road, and you have a really easy day out with beautiful countryside thrown in.

Hint: if you are driving yourself there get off the M1 at Nouvelle France and from there turn left onto the A9. DO NOT drive through Curepipe unless you happen to be visiting there at any rate.

Do not go to this factory unless you are assured a tour around the factory. Otherwise all you will see is an average museum. The tea tasting afterwards was in a stunning location about 10 mins drive up a tall hall.

The tour was informative and enjoyable. We got there just in time after the leaf collection so we were able to follow the process fully.

From leaf picking to packaging, eveything is covered.

The guides are knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions.

The tea tasting at the end is fantastic and in a luxurious setting.

You will need your own transportation to go between the sites so I would advise booking a taxi for the day.

Had lunch at the Bois Cheri Tea Plantation (Feb 25) located on a picturesque hill overlooking a small lake. The half oval dining room looks out onto a wide panorama of the tea plantation through large floor to ceiling windows. We started with the breaded shrimp which came with a small dipping sauce covered by a dollop of green chili paste. The breading was perfectly thin and of a saffron/orange colour (similar colour to the Indian sweet called jalebi). For our mains I had the so-so coconut/curry chicken. My wife ordered the house special Chicken in Bois Cheri tea sauce which was excellent (since I finished it off). Ordering the house specials is the way to go here and they are distinctly labeled on the menu.
