We went a little before it was about to close, so we did not get to look around as much as we would have liked; but had a good time. Free tea was a nice touch. We walked around the grounds a bit, bought a...More

We stopped here after a busy morning's drive and wanderings in Furnas. Set dramatically on the coast, the tea fields were still lushly green in January. Inside the factory there is plenty of interesting tea processing machinery to examine. There is also a small gift...More
