I have an idea to compile a page with links to different tea hotspots around the world. First out is Chá Gorreana tea plantation in Portugal. Here is an excerpt from Michael Figueiredo‘s post, Chá Gorreana: Europe’s Only Tea Plantation:
The tidy rows of chá bushes that stripe the rolling, emerald hillsides almost seem out of place. Chá, the Portuguese word for tea, is certainly not something you’d expect to see growing on an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the fifty-or-so hectares at the Chá Gorreana tea plantation (Plantações de Chá Gorreana) are the only place in all of Europe where tea is cultivated. …
Three types of black tea—Pekoe, Orange Pekoe and Broken Leaf—as well as Hysson, a variety of chá verde (green tea) are produced at the plantation. (StruxTravel, July 25, 2011.)

Do you have a tea hotspot (tea plantation, tea room / lounge, tea shop, etc.)?
