The Azores Environment
The Azores islands due to their positioning in the mid-Atlantic ocean hundreds of miles away from industrial pollution withhold optimum characteristics for producing a premium high quality tea. The mineral rich fertile soil, combined with fresh ocean air and artisan farming methods is only one of the reasons why the only tea grown commercially in Europe for over a century is here at Gorreana's tea plantation on the beautiful European Azores islands.
Rated the 2nd best island destination in the world for sustainable tourism by National Geographic Traveler and recently awarded the 'gift to the earth' award by the WWF the Azores islands are an international destination for both marine and natural beauty. Visit Europe's western most region and make a trip to the Gorreana Tea Estate and see why the legends of the pristine beauty of the Azores dates back to Plato's lost Atlantis.
