    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.

This is one of two tea plantations that are about 5 minutes apart in the northeast side of the island. They both sell tea and have great views, but are very different. This one seemed a little more "tourist" oriented and was very busy with lots of parking. The views are simply wonderful and the tea is excellent. This location has a restaurant where the other one does not.

The setting here is beautiful and the cost free! We did not spend a lot of time looking at the actual displays they had, but we let the kids run in the fields and enjoyed some tea and cookies. I would not slate a ton of time for your visit, but I would suggest stopping by! There appeared to be some hiking trails adjacent to the property as well, so perhaps do a hike while in the area!

This tea plantation offers great tea, but not pasta. It was the worst shrimp pasta we ever had. Definitely, it's a wrong place to order seafood.

This visit was disappointing. The technology for growing tea has changed a lot since I grew up in the Nilgiris. Now the tea is grown in hedges that are trimmed by a hedge trimmer to harvest the tea, so there's nothing interesting to see.
The tea factory consists of a few rooms of machinery, with staff who don't make eye contact, and with Tip bowls on every flat surface (why??).
There are two kinds of tea to sample: black and green; none of the other possibilities. The cafeteria is quite pleasant with a wide choice of pastries.
There are many kinds of tea to buy: the white tea is excellent, the peppermint black quite pleasant, and also the pineapple green (although it's odd to have pineapple flavour without any sweetness, and I suspect that the pineapples are Brazillian, not Azorean).

The fields of tea are beautiful.

It's somewhat interesting to see the machinery but it's a self guided tour with minimal signage with explanations.

The staff were unhelpful and non-communicative (especially surprising given how generally warm and responsive we have found tourist-facing staff have been on Sao Miguel).
