It is believed that the first seeds of tea were brought from Brazil to Azores in the second half of the eighteenth century. For a long time the tea was used only as an ornamental plant but in the year of 1878 and by the initiative of the Society Micaelense Agriculture Promoter arrived in San Miguel two Chinese tea experts to teach the industrial tea transformation.  Tea interest begun to grow in the island to the point of the existence of six tea factories and other small producers as well.
Porto Formoso Tea Factory is working since the twenties, for almost a hundred years. In 1998 the current owners began reforming the factory, a place of public interest in industrial heritage. The landscaped gardens, plantations, the museum center and the tea room are the major attractions of this beautiful well preserved place.
