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! Co-hosted by Ellen of Dobra Tea with Nancy Dorrans of Adventure Marketplace!

UPDATED FOR 2022: Six nights total, 2 islands — 4 nights in São Miguel and 1 night in Terceira. Includes international airfare, accommodations with breakfast daily, inter-island flight, daily guided tours, and most important of all, two tea plantation tours.

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 Thursday.

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 23-29, 2022
Where: São Miguel and Terceira, Azores, Portugal
Why: Because we love Camellia Sinensis!
