It is a nice small tea factory to visit, but is closed during the weekends. Yet you can go inside to walk around the buildings. Provides you with great views of the sea at a higher elevation.

Very small factory with few staff standing as a small museum as well. There is a shop outside of factory with millions of different teas!

A very small factory with a obligatory guided tour was worth the trip. The tour costs 25 Rp and shows the process of tea making and some of the history of the site. View from the factory is great!

Well their sign says Monday through Saturday 9am to 4pm...(as do many island guides) but - though they leave the gate open so you can at least enjoy the views - there was nobody about. I suspect they are there sometimes since it's not entirely...More

Visited this tea factory last week in Mahe and bought some peppermint and lemongrass tea. Lovely friendly people.

It is part of the tour and worth a stop being on the way. There is the tea factory where you can take a guided tour, the shop outside selling tea and other items and the biggest tea pot at Seychelles standing in the gardens...More

Unfortunately we arrived too late as the factory closes around 3.30pm so we were unable to see this in action but there is a nice view of the nature reserve from a view point in the car park.

In addition to the factory, the location offers some beautiful views over the countryside. Arrive early to avoid disappointment.

We went mainly for the view but we ended up buying tea, since we thought it would be a good souvenir. Not very welcoming, looks like nothing was going on. The view was amazing and worth the trip.

No reservation needed for the tour. I was there in May. Tour is self guided. Not much to see. I would skip the tour. They do sell tea which is very good. The view of the coastline alone is worth the stop.
