The Bois Chéri estate, located not far from Grand Bassin in the south of Mauritius, is home to a tea plantation, a museum and a factory that is still in operation today. It is the perfect place to understand the cultivation of tea and the different stages of production, from plucking to packaging, fermentation and drying. At the end of the visit, a tasting will even be proposed to you in the restaurant of the domain, where tea is cooked in all the sauces, as well as in salted as in sweetened. In short, this is an excursion not to be missed in the south of Mauritius. In operation since the end of the 19th century, the Bois Chéri tea factory continues to function even if it has been partly converted into a cultural center. The history of the site is fascinating and the discovery of the many stages of tea production offers a real plunge into the past. At the Bois Chéri museum, you will have the opportunity to continue the immersion in front of permanent exhibitions of old machines, century-old tea sets and paintings.
