  • We rented a car to inquire about the island. So we also had to visit The Factory. But when we were there we didn't go in. I can't imagine that it's still being produced there. It was all quite run down. What a pity

  • We had read mixed reviews so weren't sure what to expect. When we arrived the first thing we appreciated was the clear signage, easy parking and then - the amazing view! Driving to the tea factory thr...  more »
  • Today we looked at the Tea Factory; we could have really saved ourselves that. Tasting tea did not work and by chance today no production took place. The (age-old) machines could still be seen at the entrance. In our opinion, however, not only is nothing produced today, but nothing has been produced for a long time. In the control room everything was full of cobwebs and the machines were heavily dusty/dirty. This "sight" can be omitted in good conscience.

  • It is worth to go there in the morning to see whole process. Mini shop where you can buy tea for 20-100 SCR. Nice 15min trail next to it. 10 minutes by bus up the hill you will find Mission Lodge.
  • The factory is small but good to explore & see the local women working in processing & packing the Tea .. The factory is open daily but they work twice a week .. One day for green tea & friday for black tea.. We bought lose & tea bags from the factory to support those great women... The view near the factory is amazing
  • Nicest people and great views from there
  • Tea Factory is a nice place to stop for a few minutes and look around, but it's nothing special. All the teas produced there you can buy in any local supermarket by the same price
  • nice place a specially because the location. the view from here is bellyful on the north side of Mahe. at the factory shop you can by a lot of different flavors of tea prices are good
