We had a problem finding the tea factory but it was worth the trouble. The guided tour around the factory was very interesting even though there was no tea production on the day we were there. However this was probably a bonus as it meant that the guide was able to spend more time with us and it was quiet and relaxing. He was very informative, bright and witty and made the experience very enjoyable. The drive from the factory to the restaurant however was spectacular. The scenery was stunning and the location of the restaurant hard to beat, overlooking a lake and surrounded by the most amazing woodland. You can experience free tea tasting with a large selection of teas to try. All in all an enjoyable day out.

I took my grandmother, for a tour of the tea production,

The tour itself wasn't that great, but they have a restuarant at premises that has a lovely scenary and AMAZING PANCAKES

you have an option to pay for tea sampling, and they have as many as 12 different types and flavour of tea that they make.
they have shop as well, soo if you would like to buy some tea( makes lovely gifts)

all in all it was a good experience,

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.
