Porto Formoso - Azores - Portugal

The island of S. Miguel has, along its northern coast, the only two tea plantations in Europe for industrial purposes. The Porto Formoso Tea Factory is one of them, combining the production component with another, aimed at preserving the memories of tea making since its first steps in the Azorean islands, in the last quarter of the 19th century. This is the museum space, in which guided tours are offered at any time of the day, within opening hours. Afterwards, visitors are invited to taste the teas in the beautiful room that recreates a typical Sicaelense cuisine, or on the terrace with a magnificent view over the tea plantations and the village of Porto Formoso. Every year, in spring, the tea harvest is recreated here with typical old-fashioned costumes.
