Long Description:
Starting in 1883, The "Plantações de Chá Gorreana" has since then been growing this prestigious product.

Presently, the original techniques and antient qualities have been maintained through 5 family generations of carring over Gorreana Tea plantations.

Almost 75% of total production is sold within the region. Gorreana's tea is renowned for its strong aroma. In addition, Gorreana´s tea is not treated with any pesticides or fungicides due to the inexistence of any pest or disease in the region., this fact alone has coused an increase in demand from many importing coutries including the USA, and Canada (20% of production) and more recently Austria and Germany.
