A nature lover’s paradise, the Seychelles is made up of over 100 granite and coral islands, spattered like emeralds in the shimmering blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Mahé is the largest of all the islands (measuring 17 miles by 5 miles) and home to most of the locals. Feast your eyes on dazzling blue waters, powder white beaches and perfect skies as you take a breathtaking trip on Sans Souci Road to the Tea Factory.
At the Tea Factory you can pass by slopes of fragrant tea, enjoying the cool island breezes and spectacular views. Tea growing and manufacturing is done on a small scale in the Seychelles, allowing local blends to thrive in a niche market. Knowledgeable and friendly staff is on hand to help at all times as you take a tour of the Tea Factory and watch the fascinating process from begin to end.
The hardest part of this tour is to decide what to tea to sample! There are quite a few blends to select from. Whilst visiting the Tea Factory is highly recommended to try the local SeyTé (Seychelles Tea). This vibrant and delightful blend combines 5 mouthwatering flavours – vanilla, cinnamon, orange, mint and lemon. Other beverages to be sampled include the tastes of vanilla or lemon grass (not to be missed!)
