The island of S. Miguel has the only two tea plantations in Europe for industrial purposes, namely in the north coast. Porto Formoso Tea Factory is one of those factories that not only produces tea, but also preserves the memories of tea production in the Azores islands from the very beginning to the last quarter of the 19th century. It is thus a museum that organises guided visits any time of day within the given schedule. Afterwards, guests are invited to taste several tea varieties in the beautiful room that depicts a typical kitchen of S. Miguel or in the terrace, offering a magnificent view over the tea plantations and Porto Formoso town. Every year in Spring, tea picking ritual is recreated with the typical old-fashioned outfits.
