Explore the breathtaking Mauritian tea route

Awaken your senses and learn about Mauritian history, all in one trip with a tour of the stunning Bois Cheri tea plantation. Here, you’ll discover the processes and heritage behind the island’s key produces of tea, rum, vanilla and essential oils with tasting sessions, guided walks, exhibits and more.

You will meet your guide at the first stop on the tea route – the Domaine des Aubineaux, a mansion built in the late 1800s which has since been converted into a museum of Mauritian tea. Here, you’ll get an idea for the region’s rich colonial heritage and wealthy former residents while admiring antiques and exhibits dating back to the 17th century. On top of this, you’ll be given a tour of the house garden, known as the Camphor Garden, which is packed full of exotic plants and trees as well as sweeping vistas over the heart-stoppingly beautiful fields of tea plantations.

Guides will then move on Bois Cheri, the first and foremost producer of tea in Mauritius since 1892 and a must on any tea route tour. You’ll get a chance to watch the age-old process that turns the green shoots outside into the cuppa we know and love today while looking around the plantation factory. And the best bit? You’ll even be able to taste some of the Bois Cheri brews, which include a range of flavoured teas, green teas and herbal teas. Just sit, sip and admire the South Island views.

Next up, the Saint Aubin house awaits. Here, you’ll be able to witness the remnants of a 19th century building crafted using beams and ship poles. A favourite stop on the tea route, this fabulous venue offers far more than a tea party – it is also a well-known producer and distributer of vanilla and rum. With plenty of opportunities to discover, sample and purchase a variety of these tasty treats, you’re sure to leave this tour on a high note.
