Tea, Food and Culture Tour in the Azores

We’ve been asked many times, “When will you be offering a tea trip for customers?” Well, the time has come!

We are offering a tour to the Azores of Portugal to include tea, food, wine, some walking, potentially some hiking, some geothermal hot springs and of course, culture!

The tea plantations in the Azores received their equipment and training in tea processing from China, the place of origin of tea, in 1883. Along with the facilities came the training for the Portuguese to grow and produce tea to sell to Europe. Touring the fields, seeing the equipment and machinery used at the two tea plantations, and how it is produced on São Miguel, we hope will provide a better understanding of tea farming and production, in a much smaller scale than what you might find at tea plantations in Asia.

An easily-accessed tea field, the Azores are just a 5 hour flight from Boston. We’ll leave on a Friday evening and you’ll be back on the following Wednesday.

Bring solid walking shoes, your camera, an adventurous spirit and be prepared to be wowed by the amazing landscape, vistas and culture that is the Azores, a place like nowhere else!

When: Sept 2022
