About Tea from the Azores

Azorean tea is originated from the Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze plant, a member of the Theaceae family, native to China. Industrial production of tea in the Azores began in the late 19th century, on the São Miguel Island and the industry grew thanks to the initiative and entrepreneurship of the Sociedade Promotora da Agricultura Micaelense (São Miguel Agriculture Promotion Society) members. The society’s methods of tea production and the whole processing were based on Chinese traditions, brought to the island through the teachings of two Chinese experts, the master artisan Lau-a-pan and his interpreter and assistant Lau-a-teng, who came to São Miguel in 1878.
