Gorreana Tea Estate
According to history books, the practice of drinking tea was popularized in England by the consort of Charles II, Catherine of Braganza, who brought the drink from her native Portugal. Today, Gorreana Tea Estate, founded in 1883, is the last surviving tea plantation in Europe. It produces exceptional black and green teas using techniques that have been passed down through the Gago da Camara family for five generations. All of its teas are pesticide-free.
