Discover a unique and scarce green tea from the only tea plantation in Europe: the Gorreana plantation in the hills of the island of São Miguel, in the Azores.
This high-quality tea is grown in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean where exotic flora gives its leaves a unique flavor. Low in tea, particularly sweet and refreshing, this tea can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
Why I love it
- The only tea grown in Europe, on the island of São Miguel, in the Azores.
- An organic tea, protected from pollution because it comes from a plantation located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Discover the entire collection of teas from the Azores.
The Gorreana tea plantation is located on the northern slope of the island of São Miguel, the largest island in the Azores, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Together with its neighbour Porto Formoso, they are the only tea plantation in Europe. Tea has existed in the wild in the Azores since the 18th century, but its cultivation only began in 1874. The Gorreana plantation that produces this green tea is, therefore, more than 100 years old but produces only 40 tons of tea per year compared to the average of 2500 tons per plantation in Asia.
