Are you a tea aficionado? A nature lover with a thirst for exploration? Then a visit to the Gorreana Tea Factory is a must. Nestled on the island of São Miguel in the Azores, amidst breathtaking green landscapes, it stands as one of Europe’s oldest tea plantations, established in 1883 and proudly remaining in the same family for five generations.

Internationally renowned for its legacy, especially for its tea production methods that remain true to tradition, the factory exudes a rare authenticity and purity. But there are other reasons why their teas are so exceptional. Its tea fields sprawl across hundreds of kilometers, shielded from urban pollution, and are cultivated without the use of any chemicals, yielding a product that’s 100% organic. There’s more: the fertile volcanic soil and favorable climate contribute to the production of exceptionally high-quality tea.

Gorreana Factory cultivates both green and black teas, each boasting distinct and unique flavors. Depending on the processing method, the teas offer a diverse range of tastes and aromas. Some are fragrant and light, while others boast a bold and robust flavor profile. Additionally, Gorreana offers delightful blends of green and black tea infused with various herbs and fruits such as pineapple, bergamot, lemongrass, parsley, hibiscus, among many others.
