Tea picker


Meet Sati.

Sati has been picking tea on the island of Mauritius for 40 years. Tea is big business in Mauritius, with rolling plantations sweeping in orderly lines across the landscape. Whether you know it as thé, cha, chai or tea, the island’s passion for this drink dates back to 1890 and vanilla tea is still one of the most popular drinks in Mauritius.

Visit one of the tea factories or plantations on the island and you’ll find over 20 flavours of tea to try. You can even follow the Tea Route at Bois Chéri tea plantation to learn all about the history.

Come to the island and we’ll put the kettle on.
